Lots of scenes with Brad Pitt and Robert Redford either wearing sunglasses or talking on the phone. Standard spy stuff. Tony Scott tries to distract from the predictable plot with his usual flashy direction. Doesn't always work.

A tight thriller, effectively told in nonlinear format, and solidly acted by a stellar cast. This film is entertaining without sacrificing a smart script and plot that revolves around a fair amount of complicated political intrigue. Tony Scott scales back on his usual visual insanity to deliver a solid entry into the spy genre.

I saw this film Thanksgiving, 2001 in the theaters and my brother and I ruined our dinner and ate nachos and M&Ms. It was fun. The best movie with Robert Redford and Brad Pitt I had seen so far. I had never liked either of them before, but this was a smart and entertaining thriller.

A good spy movie that has Pitt and Redford at the top of their game. It has good music, a lot of decent action, and an interesting plot. I am not sure that any special elements are involved, but still a very solid 3 star movie (3.5?).

"Spy Game" by Yojimbo

A veteran CIA agent discovers that his protege is being sold out by the agency so he uses his last 24 hours on the job to try and rescue him from execution by the Chinese government. Very much an old school spy thriller, Spy Game's overly generic script means that it's pretty much entirely reliant on the partnership of Redford and Pitt to maintain your interest. Unfortunately they spend very little time on screen together as Redford spends virtually the entire film sat in a meeting shuffling paperwork while telling the largely irrelevant back story of how he met Brad who seems to be little more than a sharp shooting taxi driver. The result is a combination of a humdrum conspiracy thriller and Jackanory which comes across as the cinematic equivalent of an airport paperback. Inoffensive but...
