It's Not How You Play the Game. It's How the Game Plays You.
When a top-secret, unauthorized mission goes bad, CIA agent Tom Bishop (Brad Pitt) is captured -- and sentenced to die. With just 24 hours to get him out alive, Bishop's boss Nathan Muir (Robert Redford) must battle enemies abroad and the system inside the CIA to save his friend.

Editor's Note
Robert Redford stars as veteran CIA agent Nathan Muir in this thriller from Tony Scott (TOP GUN, ENEMY OF THE STATE). Set in 1991, Muir expects his last day before retirement to be an easy one. Instead, he finds that his protégé, Tom Bishop (Brad Pitt), is being held on espionage charges in a Chinese prison will be executed in 24 hours. A seasoned agent, Muir has played spy games for a long time and quickly realizes that the CIA may not be acting in Bishop's best interest. Even as an agency committee is grilling Muir, he is secretly working to secure his former charge's freedom. Action-packed flashbacks establish the relationship between the two men: their first meeting during the Vietnam War, Muir's recruitment of Bishop following the war, Bishop's training and early missions in Berlin, and an important operation in Beirut. Similarly, the flashbacks trace the evolution of Bishop from an eager, brand-new agent in 1975 to a disillusioned veteran in the mid-1980s who is at odds with his mentor, Muir. This last layer of conflict adds extra suspense to SPY GAME, as Muir must decide whether to help his old friend or take the easy way out.

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
"...The film is brimming with plots, counterplot, dossiers, and sinister corrupt priorities....A stylishly moody and jacked-up cloak-and-dagger adventure..." 11/30/2001 p.55-6

New York Times
"...Mr. Scott has an eye for sharp images and cool stuff....SPY GAME is seamlessly and crisply edited..." 11/21/2001 p.E1

Variety
"...[SPY GAME] produces Robert Redford's most engaging performance in years..." 11/19/2001 p.39-44

Sight and Sound
"...Viewers may be justifiably dazzled by the film's grand tour of exotic locations....Surely for most filmgoers the appeal of SPY GAME will lie in the Redford-Pitt pairing. Both look smashing..." 02/01/2002 p.61-2

Chicago Sun-Times
"...[A] tautly written, beautifully executed thriller....SPY GAME hinges on the perfect symmetry of Redford and Pitt....It's a thrill to watch here..." 11/21/2001 p.46

ReelViews 8 of 10
The frantic pace is both a boon and a detriment. On the one hand, there's no chance of boredom. On the other hand, there's not much in the way of subtlety or character development beyond the obvious. Perhaps surprisingly, there isn't much "action", either, at least not in the traditional sense. There are some shoot-outs and an explosion or two, but, as with most spy stories, Spy Game concentrates more on behind-the-scenes machinations and double-crosses than on car chases and fight scenes. So, in order to maintain the illusion of action, director Tony Scott (Crimson Tide, Enemy of the State) goes into music video mode, pumping up the film's visual look by using lots of quick cuts and making sure that hardly a moment goes by without Harry Gregson-Williams' score threatening to drown out any dialogue. - James Berardinelli

Chicago Sun-Times 7 of 10
"Spy Game," directed by Tony Scott, is all style and surface, a slick artifact made of quick cutting and the kind of rough glamour you find in fashion ads; rat-a-tat datelines identify the times and places..."Spy Game" substitutes mannerisms for human nature; there's no time, in a film where individual shots rarely last more than 20 seconds, for deeper attention...It is not a bad movie, mind you; it's clever and shows great control of craft, but it doesn't care, and so it's hard for us to care about. To see it once is to plumb to the bottom of its mysteries, and beyond. - Roger Ebert
