I gotta say, I really liked it. I didn't have much hope for it when I first saw it in theatres, but it really is a good film. Now I have it on DVD and I've watched it several times. It doesn't get old. The story is involving, it's very well done and the acting is quite good. When you think about it, it has a very interesting structure, going from the meeting to past missions to current missions. Anyone else surprised by this film?

I really was looking forward to Spy Game and ended up liking it quite a lot. It is one of those stories where I was smiling at the end thinking "wow, he pulled it off". Plus the explosions are rad.

Yeah, it really is a feel-good film, without being a chic flick. It's like a...a guy flick, without necessarily being the ordinary, shoot-em-up, never-run-out-of-bullets action film.
