Movie Review: ‘SPY’ is a hilarious take on secret agents with great performances.

Star Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, Jude Law, Miranda Hart, Peter Serafinowicz and Nargis Fakhri.


Director: Paul Feig


Producer:  20th Century Fox, Feigco Entertainment and Chernin Entertainment


Claps For: Cinematography, comic element and excellent performances, especially by Jason Statham.


Slaps For: Nothing.


Popcorn Refill: Interval


Story: The charming and handsome CIA Agent Bradley Fine, a comic version of 007 James Bond, gets killed on his mission to find the whereabouts of the suitcase nuke bomb. The mission is then handed over to Susan Cooper, his desk-partner who guides him during his missions, and is a completely new agent on the field. What follows next is a hilarious journey of her search for the suitcase; but with a little trouble from Agent Rick Ford every now and then, who thinks she would ruin the mission!


Performance: Melissa McCarthy does a wonderful job as the woman who has spent her entire career sitting on a chair and guiding people, but is suddenly thrown out into the real world to fight against enemies. Her reactions to the various incidents that happen while she is on the field are hilarious and amazing! Be it having the girly fantasies or putting up a brave front against the enemies, she carries the entire film on her shoulders. Rose Byrne looks hot and classy in a role that was tailor-made for her. Kudos to her for making even a wicked scene, or the scenes where she gets angry, come across as funny ones! But the real surprise package of the film is Jason Statham who is incredibly funny as Agent Rick Ford. His assumptions that he is the best in the business and how he makes heroic attempts, that go wrong every time, are hilarious. Nargis Fakhri is used as an eye-candy. Peter Serafinowicz is also funny as the agent who is always behind women!


Direction: A spy comedy can be of two types. One is where you make a spoof of another spy movie and present it in a hilarious manner. Second is where you keep the story real and add comic elements into it. While both are equally hard to do, the second one requires a little more effort to make the movie a convincing one. And Feig manages to do that perfectly. The movie isn’t an intelligent one but it isn’t even a no-brainer flick. He keeps it simple and concentrates more on how a girl would react to during her first mission filled with blood and gore. Though the characterizations change a bit towards the climax, the funny scenes cover up for it. Overall, nice job!


Combo-on-Offer: Comedy + Action


Verdict: We give the film thunderous Claps for being funny, delivering great performances and surprising us with a completely funny version of Jason Statham.
