SPY GAME (R)
Reviewed November 25, 2001 - Check out the Spy Game Website.
Studio Synopsis: Complications arise on the last day of work for a veteran CIA agent (Robert Redford) when he must organize the rescue of a young protege (Brad Pitt) who has been captured by the Chinese while on a personal mission.
Fuzzydog Review: Redford and Pitt, master and apprentice. In a film that feels like a throwback to all those great 70's thrillers (e.g., Three Days of the Condor) that Robert Redford mastered so long ago, Spy Game offers a smart, well-paced story of international espionage that will definitely please fans of the genre. Both Redford and Pitt are excellent here, as the story-which spans a period starting during the Vietnam War all the way through to 1991-traces the history between these two CIA operatives. With ample servings of both tension and humor, there's a lot to like in Spy Game, even given how close to home it comes in today's politically sensitive times. See it for Redford, see it for Pitt…either way, if you're a fan of old-style espionage, you're in for a decent bit of film entertainment.
