Movie Review: SPY

If you are looking for an action-packed espionage film with just the right amount of hilarious scenes that would surprise and entertain you, you should watch "SPY" in theaters.

We have seen several secret agent films that are usually serious and filled with high-tech gadgets and stunning locations. But what do we get if we add some hint of hilarious antics and unexpected twists to our regular spy film - it gets even better. Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) is known for her impeccable comedic style in "The Heat" and "Identity Thief" stars in this fantastic comedic-espionage. Susan Cooper's character may be out of her element. But not out of her league.

What we love about the film is the unexpected timing of the comedy in regular and intense situations. It wasn't just a slapstick kind of comedy but a great action film in its own right. The action sequences were intense. One of our favorite scene was the kitchen scene where Susan battles an assassin with a kitchen knife, defending herself only with a pan and some salad ingredients. The amount of key elements for a spy film was in the perfect proportion. Jason Statham's performance was hilariously engaging and a breath of fresh air from his usual action roles. Jude Law was the "almost" perfect British spy ensemble in the film that still surprise the audience with his witty antics. Miranda Hart's performance was also a great way to balance the comedic style of Melissa. The outstanding chemistry of the cast was brilliant!

Be sure to stay for the end credits scene.

Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions. But when her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Jason Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster.

In the latest all-out high-octane action and laugh-out-loud “Spy” movie, Jason Statham describes his role in the film as “different from anything I’ve done, and it’s been great fun.”

Byrne takes on the role of Rayna, a beautiful and privileged Oxford-educated daughter of a recently deceased arms dealer who becomes frenemies with Susan Cooper, a novice spy who gears up for action after Fine (Law) suddenly goes off the grid during a dangerous assignment. Agent Cooper leaves her dreary desk job behind, entering the world of international espionage in Europe.  Soon, Rayna and Susan butt heads when Rayna has come into possession of an unusual inheritance, a small tactical nuclear weapon enough to give the world a total meltdown.

Jude Law says:  “As far as Fine is concerned, he and Susan are the perfect team, unflappable, the cream of the crop in the CIA. He sees the relationship as purely platonic, despite the occasional flirtations. Certain elements of that she may misread, or perhaps hope will develop into something more. He doesn’t imagine that she has any real desire to leave the basement, but you could argue that he wants Susan to remain there because without her he might be lost.”
