Citizen Critique-Spy Game

by

Wow, espionage, patriotism and a hint of a love story all in one movie -- say it isn't so! I had to write that first because I didn't want to come off as a shallow individual. Now it is safe to say this. Brad Pitt and Robert Redford both in one movie! Wow! Say it isn't so! Yummy. That's the best I can come up with.


This really is a great movie. The plot twists with deception (it is called Spy GAME after all). I was wondering why I enjoyed the movie SO much. I do not normally like films about war or politics. Then I remembered how my mother was drooling over Robert Redford and concluded that I must have had that very same expression on my face as I followed Brad all over the big screen. The acting was superb. The action was intense but not overbearing. I watched two girls leave the movie halfway through it, and I guessed they got confused during the movie while they were twirling their hair. Really, this is not just a great eye-candy movie. The other moviegoers (men and women alike) seemed to reach the same feeling. Go see this film!
