What do you get when you add one part Brad Pitt being severely beaten to five parts Robert Redford in a bad spy movie? ...Umm... well... you get something that might have been good had they shown more of Brad Pitt being beaten up. Don't get me wrong, I love Brad Pitt. In fact, he's probably my favorite actor. So imagine my surprise when he stars in what proved to be a bland wanna-be spy movie with less gadgets than half of an episode of McGuyver. The plot, you ask? The plot takes place through phones and a multitude of flashbacks. Gripping. I will admit, however, that some of the hi jinx that wacky CIA gets up to are pretty funny, but worth the rest of the movie? I say no. Brad Pitt as the Boyscout, I am truly sorry.
THE VERDICT - 5
Spy Game damned to eternal suffering due to mediocrity.
