4.0 out of 5 stars I SPY U SPY June 13 2004
Format:DVD
Tony Scott's intricately plotted spy drama ironically places two of our blond matinee idols in jeopardy. A leathery-faced Robert Redford with the fresh blossom of youth in Brad Pitt. Both actors do well in their roles, with Redford coming out on top as his role demands a little more. Scott is good in keeping the pace quick even though there are several moments that you wonder if he can keep it up. Pitt plays a CIA operative captured on a botched mission and scheduled to be executed by the Chinese. Of course, the CIA will allow this because Pitt was on a rogue unauthorized mission, and they don't want to ruin their trade relationship with China. Redford does everything he can in a 24 hour period to ensure Pitt's safety.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Thriller, practically flawless May 31 2004
Format:DVD
Wow, what's NOT to like in this tightly-directed, smart spy thriller? Certainly not Brad Pitt, who plays Viet Nam vet, ex-boyscout, erstwhile trained assassin who doesn't shy at doing wetwork while agonizing about the fate of his "assets" or contacts in the field. And a great performance from Robert Redford as Nathan Muir, who is about to retire as a CIA agent, but has plenty of game left in him on his last day at work.
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.
Highly Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Taut, Suspenseful Thriller! April 29 2004
Format:DVD
Nathan Muir (Robert Redford) is finally ready to retire. He has spent his life working for the CIA as a top-secret spy and has trained many of the young spies currently working for the CIA. He has never let any of them get to him - until Tom Bishop (Brad Pitt). Nathan and Tom parted on less than amicable terms, but when Nathan hears that Tom has been captured in China and is scheduled to be executed the next day for espionage, he knows he has to do something. Nathan manages to maneuver himself into the group investigating Tom's capture and Nathan discovers that Tom was not on a CIA mission when he was captured - he went rogue. While the committee pumps Nathan for information regarding Tom and their relationship, Nathan realizes that the CIA has no intention of claiming Tom and are planning on sacrificing him for a better relationship with China. Nathan strings the committee on as long as he can to try and decide what he can do to help Tom because he knows exactly why Tom was in China - and Nathan is the one who gave her to them...
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good spy flick with Redford and Pitt March 16 2004
Format:DVD
Spy Game is a good movie that benefits greatly from its two stars, Robert Redford and Brad Pitt. Nathan Muir(Redford) is a CIA operative about to retire when he is tipped off that is past protege, Tom Bishop, has been captured by the Chinese and is going to be executed in 24 hours. The heads of the CIA ask Muir about Bishop's past to see if there is anything suspicious about his actions. Much of the movie is in flashback as Muir explains how he met and trained Bishop from the Vietnam War to Cold War Berlin to the Middle East. At the same time, Muir must try to find a way to save his friend from certain death. If nothing else, this is a worthwhile spy movie. Plenty of twists and turns as Muir tries to outwit his bosses about Bishop. This is by no means a great movie, but is still a worthwhile spy/thriller movie. I recommend a watch.
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!
