Spy Movie Reviews
It seems (from the IMDb score) that a lot of people have a much higher opinion of this movie than myself. Melissa McCarthy plays Susan Cooper who is an office CIA agent helping field agent Bradley Fine (Jude Law). Having vowed to never watch a Jason Statham movie this is the second time recently that I've been shocked to see his name pop up on the opening credits. I suppose it's fair to say that he does play a very particular type of character and if you like that then you will not have the same reservations.
As for the film itself it does have it's moments, but falls somewhere between Austin Powers and James Bond. Not as funny as Austin Powers and not as entertaining as James Bond. Anyway judge for yourself as it's clear that many people enjoyed the movie.
