Spy vs. Spy

Lest you think from previous posts that I’m too elitist and don’t see enough popular films, I’ll weigh in briefly on The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and Spy.

Although I think Armie Hammer and Alicia Vikander have great chemistry – loved all of their scenes together – I wanted a little more spunk and edginess from this Guy Ritchie vehicle. The ‘60s look is fun, but I wanted Ritchie to take things even further.


On the other hand, I laughed lot at Spy. Not that it’s great art, or anything, but this Paul Feig comedy scores high on the entertainment meter, and Melissa McCarthy (and a strong supporting cast) is a big part of the reason.


So, in this spy vs. spy battle, I have to give the edge to Spy. I enjoyed it more than I expected, which is always a viewing pleasure.
