Spy is all about Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy), who is a desk bound CIA analyst guiding her partner, Agent Bradley Fine (Jude Law) on a mission to Bulgaria from the CIA office in the US.
Susan is sent to Paris, where the agency places her to spy on De Luca (Nargis Fakhri). What’s amusing is the fact that after she reaches Paris, she sets to assist De Luca.
The film has some super one liners, jokes that will bring a smile on your face and last but not the least subtly comments about Susan Cooper, who is fat, adorable and cute.
Susan Cooper is competent and is exceptional as a secret agent. She is great with action and does not think twice before attempting anything, be it action or be it cracking jokes.
The two gems of the cast are Rose Byrne, who essays the role of Rayna Boyanov and Jason Statham, who essays the character of Rick Ford in the film.
Rose Byrne plays one of the film’s villains, and her accidental relationship with Melissa McCarthy gives the film an edge that’s fun.
While Rose Byrne comic timing is somewhat expected, Jason Statham is a revelation. Jason has one scene in the beginning of the second half that has the power to move you and I am sure it would end up becoming one of the highlights of the films.
One also needs to applaud the entire team of Spy for taking on the all male world, adding a feminist text to it and still retaining the much required fun and entertainment.
This film could have gone the other way, but Paul Feig has pushed the envelope, turn the gender dynamics and has made an entertaining film.
All in all, Spy is well written, has well etched out characters and last but not the least is well directed.
This one is a must watch.
Spy is a fun film with great content, it could be termed as a female bond film and last but not the least it's laced with humour. Spy is all about ...3.0
