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!
