Gripping, improbable plot marked by exciting sequences of action.
There's something elegiac in Redford's spy who knows he's a dinosaur but still has a few moves left.
Entertaining but farfetched, Spy Game might have looked less meretricious a few months back. But the real world has sabotaged its pretense of authenticity. Enjoy it for what it is, a fleet, handsome fantasy of globe-hopping blond demigods.
To make silk purses from turgid passages, Mr. Scott does what he always does, gooses them up with every trick in the big-budget book.
