Film Review | Spy

Hi, another film review for you today, this time I am reviewing Spy which I went to see a few weeks ago. The main character is Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) a qualified spy who has never seen a day at work that wasn't at her desk. She works along side Bradley Fine (Jude Law) as his intelligence while on missions, Susan has become a little infatuated with him over time. One day Bradley Fine is tracking the daughter of the previous owner of a bomb, Rayna Boyanov (Rose Byrne). Fine is killed in action when the mission goes wrong. This is when a heart broken Susan puts herself up to go out on the field and track the people responsible for her partners death.


With a selection of the worst possible undercover identities and even worse designed spy gadgets, Susan sets out on her first under cover mission. All she has to do is stay unknown to the target and report back to HQ. All the while a rogue agent Rick Ford (Jason Statham) is out to solve the case on his own. There are some really funny exchanges of words between the pair. The film is full of random moments which are massively cringe worthy in a funny way. The story is quick paced and full of funny moments. I enjoyed the film but I wasn't blown away by it, it was pretty much a classic spy film with the usual gun fights and some impressive choreography of hand to hand combat. There are also good elements of blossoming friendships and personal discovery by Susan. There is a pretty good twist at the end which I didn't see coming which is always nice.

I never know how much to talk about the plot of a film in a review so I hope I don't give too much away?
