A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer and prevent diabolical global disaster.
Jude Law, Jason Statham and . . . Melissa McCarthy!?!? From the looks of this movie it was going to be a agonizing flop, but to my surprise this movie was fun and I cannot stop recommending it.
The cast is an unlikely grouping but they all work awesome together. After the last couple of Melissa McCarthy films I've seen, I was not looking forward to this one. But she did a really good job; if felt like she toned down the bumbling Kevin James-ness unlike she has done in the past; yes, it's still there from time to time but not overdone. The one person I loved in this film is Jason Statham, this is a different roll for him, he is really funny and I feel like some of the stories he tells are things that happened in Jason Statham's other films.
The story is good but not really original and the film is forgettable. although, SPY has a great mix of comedy and action. The laughs are strong and are non stop, I was shocked by how good Melissa McCarthy did with fight scenes.
With a fun story, good laughs, fun action and Jason Statham like you have never seen him before. SPY is a good watch and you shouldn't let this movie pass you by. Cheers and remember life won't suck as long as there is a good movie to watch.
8.5 out of 10
