Hello and Welcome Reviewers!
Today I’m reviewing Spy.
A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster.**
Spy is surprisingly funny. You’re not expecting too much when you read the synopsis of the movie but you will change your thoughts while watching it. Jason Statham is over the top and it works for him. He brings a lot of laughs to the movie. If you’re a fan of Melissa McCarthy then you will properly enjoy her antics. You wouldn’t be a crazy person to watch this movie during the prime hours.
I give this movie a 8.1 out of 10.
This Spy review contains possible spoilers. You’ve been warned.
** Warning, Possible Spoilers!!!! **
First and foremost, Jason Statham is “spit milk through your nose” hilarious in this movie. You’re not expecting a lot of funny moments from his character at all but you’re politely surprised. This is reminiscent of his earlier acting days. He was sprinkled quite nicely through the entire movie and it worked. The best parts of this movie happened each time he showed up or said anything.
The acting from Melissa McCarthy was good. She normally feels like the same character each time she’s on the screen but this time she’s slightly different. Her typical antics didn’t come out as strong in this movie which worked out for the best. You got to see a little bit of her ability to think on her feet.
This movie took a page from the Mission: Impossible series and took liberties with it. The execution was enjoyable to watch on the screen. If you remember the plot for the first MI movie then each section of Spy reminds you of it.
The comedy in this movie was good. There were a lot of funny moments from all of the characters. Rose Byrne was hilarious at times and so was the scenes with Miranda Hart. Let’s not forget Jude Law gave some funny one liners as well.
The villain of the movie was kind of weak. Rayna felt more like a villain to a Spy Kids movie more than anything. Your movie is only as strong as your weakest link and this villain took off a few points for their overall score.
The cameo from McCarthy’s husband was a tad bit silly. They could have done without sticking him into the picture and it would have been fine.
It would be a different movie if the villain was very evil but hilarious at the same time. I would say think of someone like Valentine from Kingsman: Secret service. He was funny and got the job done when it was time to get serious.
