Editors Note
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.

ReviewSource San Francisco Examiner
Review The action begins early...in Tony Scott's terrifically entertaining Spy Game, and the rest of the movie maintains the brisk pace in what feels like an unbroken, brilliantly sustained rush of turbo-charged excitement... Redford gives his most appealing and multifaceted performance in ages...

ReviewSource Washington Post
Review ...a taut, timely and intelligent thriller with cloak-and-swaggering performances from Robert Redford and Brad Pitt.. The movie is sleek and shiny as a new bullet, reflecting [the directors] patented surplus of style, but in this case that only enhances a stirring drama about the moral ambiguities native to intelligence-gathering.
