Review 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.

Review "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.
