Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) is a CIA agent remotely monitoring surveillance information from the vermin infested basement at CIA headquarters for the 007-like agent in the field, Bradley Fine (Jude Law).
On a mission in Bulgaria, Bradley confronts a terrorist who is supposedly the only person alive who knows where a small nuclear bomb is hidden. Holding a gun on him, Bradley sneezes…..shooting and killing the terrorist.
From her remote monitoring station, Cooper helps Fine escape by letting him know when and where to expect security guards as he runs through the mansion to escape trouble.
The next mission to find the nuke does not go as well as Bradley is killed, but, not before the next terrorist informs the CIA, via Cooper’s video feed, that she knows every spy in the organization and that more deaths will follow.
Dilemma: If this terrorist knows every spy…..who can the CIA send to complete the mission? It has to be someone unknown, someone who is a trained agent, someone like: Susan Cooper.
“Spy” is an excellent, laugh-out-loud, spoof of spy movies and action stars (including Jason Statham as spy Rick Ford who plays a dimwitted, Jason Statham-like action star….very funny).
“Spy” is rude, crude, and very funny. Not for kids as the f-words fly and blood flows. But definitely worth the rental cost.
Melissa McCarthy rocks.
