No stranger to the machinations of the CIA’s top echelon, Muir hones all his skills and irreverent manner in order to find a way to free Bishop. As he embarks on his mission to free Bishop, Muir recalls how he recruited and trained the young rookie, at that time a sergeant in Vietnam, their turbulent times together as operatives and the woman who threatened their friendship.
Plot: On the day of his retirement, a veteran CIA agent learns that his former protégé has been arrested in China, is sentenced to die the next morning in Beijing, and that the CIA is considering letting that happen to avoid an international scandal.

In response to the negative reviews
I can’t believe some of the nonsense I’ve read here. People are complaining that Redford looked too old in the flashback scenes — for one, I thought he looked believable. Secondly, Hollywood hasn’t cloned Redford in a vat yet so we’ll just have to live with scenes like this. So get over it. Others complain that the movie is somehow BORING, which blows my mind, considering it’s non-stop, fast paced action and dialogue. If you’re attention span is too short for this movie I’m sure you’ll enjoy crap like “XXX”. Others complain about messy plot logic (how did a CIA operative get into a Chinese prison? Huuu duhh, I dunno! It’s a popcorn flick you morons! It’s not a 900 page novel or a documentary). The plot takes a few leaps here and there, but a Snake Eyes or Face/Off this film is not. I read complaints about the ‘arty’, flashy ‘MTV’ style editing and filming techniques — I actually thought the movie was filmed and edited superbly and the contemporary, TV-commercial style actually complemented the film. It’s crisp, tight, taut and entertaining. You get the feeling this is a high-quality production, whereas with something like “Mission Impossible 2” the same type of style is implemented but it comes off feeling cheap. Not here, not with this movie. As with Enemy of the State, it works. I have a feeling some of the people that thought it was boring simply couldn’t follow what was going on. The plot does make sense if you have the attention span to keep up.
Possibly the best intrigue/espionage movie ever made
That’s quite a statement to make, I know, but this movie is a rare gem in an ever-more-diluted genre. Redford delivers an incredible performance as the jaded veteran CIA case worker who tells the tale of his protégé: Tom Bishop. Redford is too slick for words, and only he could deliver the lines as believably.
Spy movies tend to be flashy and sexy–either James Bond or Jason Bourne–and for good reason: they put butts in seats. Don’t get me wrong, I love those movies too. But they very rarely give an honest portrayal of the real world of espionage and intrigue. Understandably, because most of that world is incredibly dry and boring.
Spy Game shows this reality. Admittedly it sticks to the highlights to keep you interested and on the edge of your seat–it’s intense–but it also shows the human cost of espionage, for the agents and for those they affect.
At its core, Spy Game is about dedication, sacrifice, and redemption, seen through the lens of realpolitik at the end of the Cold War.
