Product Description

Superstar Brad Pitt teams with Academy Award-winner Robert Redford in this pulse-pounding action thrill ride. When a top-secret, unauthorized mission goes bad, CIA agent Tom Bishop (Pitt) is captured - and sentenced to die. With just 24 hours to get him out alive, Bishop's boss Nathan Muir (Redford) must battle enemies abroad and the system inside the CIA to save his friend. Now, the clock is ticking and the race is on… as the deadliest game of all explodes into the spectacular, adrenaline-fueled thriller that ABC Radio says "Sizzles with suspense!"

From the first time I saw "Spy Game" I was caught. Any time it was shown on TV I made a point of watching it and each time I appreciated again the elements that had caught me the first time. There are just a few movies that I put in the category of "I have to see it again"; this is one and Shawshank Redemption is another. I particularly like Robert Redford's performance as his character outwits each attack thrown at him by the CIA investigation committee. I loved his quick thinking and deviousness as he worked each step, while still in the USA, to help his protege (played by Brad Pitt) who was being tortured in a Chinese prison.

It is often rare to find such a clever, appealing, high quality drama. I often find myself seeing the film star rather than the character when watching movies and although you would think it hard not to with the stars of this movie, both Robert Redford and Brad Pitt sink into their characters seamlessly.

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.

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.

Spy Game, starring Robert Redford and Brad Pitt was a great movie. It was a cleverly written and quite sophisticated.
Tony Scott's directing was prodigous and really blossomed. Robert Redford's acting still was marvellous and amazing. As for Brad Pitt, he acted reasonably, actually fairly better than his other terrible roles which were basically flops, but anyway here's the plot.
Robert Redford play CIA Operative Nathan Muir, his protege, Tom Bishop played by Brad Pitt has been captured and his arrested for espionage. On the day of Muir's intened retirement, Bishop plans to be executed. Muir has 24 hours to try and rescue him but Muir's assisants make him debrief them on his own personal experiences and history with the rogue spy. From here, Muir must fight the system which he knows to well to rescue and liberate his friend. He must work under the table, secretly, surreptiously and cleverly in order to help his friend survive. He is being held in Hong Kong, as a prisoner and is being tortured and agonized. Muir must act quickly in the next 24 hours, or else his friend will be executed at 8 o'clock as scheduled. Can Muir save his friend before it's to late?
Spy Game is rated R for Language, Some Violence and Brief Sexuality. A tolerable choice for teenages, perhaps on a range from 14 and above. The film features some good action with a well choreographed helicopter chase and a few other good sequences as well as beatifully film footage from Hong Kong to the CIA Headquarters in Langley, Virginia. A good choice for mature audiences, who know how to think and contemplate. Now available to own on Video & DVD.

Robert Redford was in two films that were released at pretty much the same time: The Last Castle and Spy Game. Both are good films, but although Spy Game is more significant, I found that I preferred the Last Castle because the story is told so straightforwardly. I'm not complaining about the flashbacks in Spy Game -- this film had an excellent concept and script. But Spy Game's director plays around with odd camera angles and visual effects that show up well in video games but that greatly interfere with the story. Some of these angles and effects work well, especially on the big screen in the theatres, but a number do not. Film being a visual medium, the director should have given some consideration to the fact that human eyes can only see so much or handle so much shifting before they start to weary or the audience starts getting annoyed and disaffected. These effects are only worsened when played on your TV screen. In places, the electronic soundtrack is raucous, also detracting from the story and also seeming like video game material. Extras on this DVD are pretty run of the mill -- deleted scenes and an alternate ending that really only had one or two more scenes at the end of the hero's Porsche driving off into the sunset but not an alternate storyline, as the idea of an alternate ending imples. There are multiple commentaries from director and producers, if you like that sort of thing. I was hoping for a "The Making of..." documentary. There is one,in a way, but it is embedded in the film. You have to turn on the Ops feature, then page through the film. Each chapter has a Classified icon. Press enter when you see it and some details or some films of the set play with various crew members or the director speaking.Read more ›
