  • ★★★½ review by Matt Singer on Letterboxd

    Jason Statham is so good in SPY he should have won an Oscar and a Nobel Peace Prize.

  • ★★★½ review by Evan on Letterboxd

    From what I've seen from Melissa McCarthy she should ONLY work with Paul Feig from this point on. I've liked her in Bridesmaids, The Heat, and now Spy. However, I have disliked her in most of the other films I've seen her in. For me Spy is McCarthy's best performance to date.

    Spy is a hilarious, action-packed good time! Going in I was not expecting much action at all in this film; but there's actually quite a bit of it and it's very well done. The cast is pretty fantastic. I found McCarthy to be very funny and enjoyable. Jason Statham plays a really great moron. His performance is almost a self parody of himself as an actor. Rose Byrne....I love Rose Byrne, she was hysterical in this film. She's really coming on as a great comedic actress. I had the most fun during this movie when Byrne and McCarthy were on screen together. The pair got plenty of laughs out of me.

    My biggest issue with Spy is that a decent amount of jokes didn't hit for me. While there was plenty that did, there was still a fair amount that didn't even manage to get a smile from me. With that being said I still laughed and smiled more than I didn't. The film is also slightly too long for what it is. At nearly 2 hours long, I think 10-15 minutes could have definitely been cut out.

    All in all, I had a really good time with Spy. I loved the cast. For the most part it's a very funny film. And the action actually hits really hard. There is this awesome action scene that takes place in a kitchen. What's with all these cool action scenes going down in kitchens lately?

    some people think they're above melissa mccarthy/paul feig comedies. imagine hating fun and laughter

  • ★★★½ review by davidehrlich on Letterboxd

    Rose Byrne is the greatest thing to happen to comedy since the invention of the microphone. To that end, perhaps the highest compliment that can be paid to Paul Feig’s frequently hilarious Spy, in which the Neighbors star plays a supporting part as a villainous Bulgarian arms dealer named Rayna Boyanov, is that Byrne is barely the best thing in it.
