Movie Review: Spy

Attributes: Movie Reviews

Director: Paul Feig
Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, Miranda Hart, Bobby Cannavale, Nargis Fakhri, Allison Janney, and Jude Law.

When you have the front liners of Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law and Jason effing Statham in a movie; You simply HAVE to go for it!
What starts off as an exhausted James Bond parody, leads to one of the BEST Comedy films of 2015!

Melissa McCarthey plays Susan Cooper, who works as an operator for the CIA, in assisting field agent Bradley Fine, played by Jude Law, through his "espionage" trips. With a major plot twist, Susan finds herself in the field trying to locate the whereabouts of a nuke with, Miranda Hart as Nancy filling her role at camp to help her out.

When it comes to acting, Melissa McCarthy is spot on, once again showing that she rightfully nail a lead role against the male-dominated pseudo Spy flicks. Jude Law is his classy self as a suave fake Bond with his million dollar smile and Martinis. Even the CIA director, Elaine played by the legendary Allison Janney had small puns here, while still maintaining her strict, bossy figure. You also have the beautiful Rose Byrne who plays a brilliant Rayna Boyanov, a Bulgarian Arms Dealer.

Out of the many highlights, Jason Statham as Rick Ford surprisingly fits in a comedy fixture as an agent who is constantly at Susan's heels and tends to take all the glory. Regular hilarity ensues between the two, with the latter's cockiness and ridiculously, irrelevant stories. It is indeed fresh to see him in a comic role, making fun of the the ditto personage that he adapts in the majority of his films. There is also 50 Cent in an extremely small Cameo but, making you laugh nevertheless!

Story-wise there is nothing to divulge greatly for, it literally sticks to its genre of a spy-action-comedy flick, thoroughly delivering on it, making for a delight for a movie, with no holes in it, just the inquisitiveness as to what will happen next, making it a MUST WATCH this weekend and for which I give it 3.5 Shors on 5! Cheers.
