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.
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.
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.
