The movie has a fine supporting cast including Marie-Jean Baptiste as Redford's secretary; Larry Bryggman (soap opera's AS THE WORLD TURNS); Catherine McCormack as Pitt's love interest, and Stephen Dillane as Harker, the self-assured, egotistical fellow agent.
David Hemmings and Charlotte Rampling have cameos.
All in all, entertaining, if a little hard to follow sometimes.
The supporting cast is mostly unknowns who do a superb job as CIA flacks, and the plot is full of twists, turns and yet is logically laid out. The tension builds nicely at the beginning, and though this is a longish film (2 1/2 hours) it carries the tension well and never, ever drags.
I enjoyed this film for the fact that nothing really was telegraphed as to outcome, though we almost see the film in full circle from beginning to end. A fine effort by Pitt, Redford and most of all, Tony Scott.
Spy Game was a very suspenseful film that caught my attention from the first moment and didn't let go. I thought that Robert Redford's portrayal of Nathan Muir was riveting and quite interesting in terms of his CIA involvement. Brad Pitt was also very able in his role as Tom Bishop, a young spy struggling to maintain his distance from those people that he was spying on. The supporting cast was also very good and they really fit into the parts well. Director Tony Scott did a wonderful job in using flashbacks to show Nathan and Tom's relationship all the way from their beginnings in Vietnam to their falling out in the Near East.Read more ›
Robert Redford is very good as soon to retire CIA operative, Nathan Muir. He is very believable in the role. Brad Pitt is equally as good as CIA agent, Tom Bishop. The relationship between the two men makes this movie go as Muir teaches Bishop the tools and tricks of the trade. Spy Game also stars Catherine McCormack, Stephen Dillane, Larry Bryggman, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, and Matthew Marsh. The DVD offers countless extras including commentaries from producers and director Tony Scott, deleted scenes, behind the scenes featurettes, production notes, an interactive script, and widescreen presentation. For an enjoyable espionage thriller with good performances by Redford and Pitt, check out Spy Game!
