In many ways, Spy feels like the perfect culmination for Feig and McCarthy, fusing together body language and sarcasm in the most male of genres. Here, they’ve reconfigured the globetrotting spy thriller it into a smart, proactive, and endearing deconstruction of what femininity looks like in the modern world. It’s a Bond spoof that’s often better than the real thing.

The film makes a point of featuring women in the kind of key roles (sidekick, villain, a steely CIA boss) they rarely get a sniff at. What’s most pleasing is to see Spy turning its fish-out-of-water tale into one about self-actualisation. Rather than a Spikes Like Us style trail of bumbling, its theme is female empowerment, competence overcoming lack of confidence. McCarthy’s talent for fearless physical comedy, freewheeling improv and motor-mouth rants pulls the film along like a locomotive.

It’s quite funny, though perhaps not as funny as it could be. One small annoyance is writer-director Paul Feig’s penchant for ugly, gratuitous detail designed to earn his film an ‘R’ rating, often viewed as a selling-point for a comedy. Spy is peppered with startlingly lurid moments: a man’s throat dissolves, another is impaled on a spike, there’s vomit and swearing and glimpses of a tumescent penis. None of it feels essential to what’s really just a breezy Bond parody.

Hvad siger folk?

  • Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Spy

    Feig's film becomes cliché in its desperate attempt to avoid the clichés, or, at least, satirize them. However, Spy is well-cast and there are undeniable moments of solid comedy that make this spoof more enjoyable than most.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Spy

    Released the same year as "Kingsman," Paul Feig's "Spy" often feels like a mirror of that film, what with it's surprisingly well-staged fight sequences and a score that channels the best of John Barry-era Bond. That said, "Spy" proves refreshingly devoid of the kind of virulent misanthropy that seems to infect everything "Kingsman" creator Mark Millar touches, ensuring "Spy" is more entertaining than it is cynical.

  • f-nanda's rating of the film Spy

    The only real funny thing about this movie is Jason Statham. And he's known as an action movie star, not a comedian. Congrats to him. Maybe it tried too much to be funny and it just didn't work. And really? Didn't it cross her mind to call her dad and ask about it? REALLY? Family drama.

  • Palmat's rating of the film Spy

    A strong 3 out of 5! The direction and plotting is on point and while nothing new is brought to the spy genre I think Feig keeps things fresh enough. McCarthy is finally put to good use and gets to go all in a decent role. The support players are all good and I especially liked Byrne´s bitchy rapport with McCarthy. And Statham is hilarious. Who knew! This is very good popcorn entertainment!

  • Quentin Carbonell's rating of the film Spy

    Fairly unbalanced but with some good moments of entertainment. Interesting how this movie and Pitch Perfect 2 are aiming to humanize and empower an overweight person, as the default consideration is that this person has to suck at everything. Meh.

  • Addy K.'s rating of the film Spy

    There's something very wrong with this film—and it has nothing to do with Robert Yeoman's cinematography (shockingly bad given his Wes Anderson canon), or the shit/fart jokes (admittedly some made me laugh). Paul Feig, Hollywood's go-to feminist, uses Melissa McMarthy's character to debate gender politics but simply reinforces stereotypes. Apparently, women are empowered when they behave more like men. Deeeep.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Spy

    Fun summer froth that finally provides Melissa McCarthy will a fitting vehicle to play to her strengths. Great support especially from Miranda Hart (where did she come from!), Rose Byrne and Peter Serafinowicz. Flips the spy genre around well goofing on its silly villains, goofy gadgets and globe trotting plot devices while also defying 'the beautiful spy' archetype. '...you're crying now...'

  • Joe Hackman's rating of the film Spy

    I think this may have suffered from high expectations given its Tomato-meter, but I did find myself laughing about certain scenes then next day. Melissa McCarthy is very funny and is well-supported by the cast. I still prefer Johnny English.
