    What an incredible disappointment. goofy plot, way sub-par acting, and godawful dialogue. if the plot or cinematography were half-decent it might have saved this dull, soon-to-be-forgotten spy flick.

  1. It's well-plotted, acted with a charismatic flair and right on the zeitgeist.
  2. Fans of swooping helicopter shots, alleys filled with backlit geysers of steam, and jump-cut editing that makes MTV look like Ingmar Bergman will relish the intercontinental intrigue and huggermugger that is Spy Game.
  3. The script provides an excellent payoff, although action fans may not agree, because that payoff is the equivalent of a Cheshire cat's grin.
