  Digital Download Not Mac Compatible

This is a product review not a movie review but is completely relevant and contains important information for anyone purchasing this for the digital download.

I purchased this because it had a digital download included. However upon receipt of the Blu Ray I found that the download is only Android and PC compatible. The Fox website offers no help whatsoever and despite emailing them about this I have received no response. So, if you were hoping to watch this on your iPad, iMac etc.. then you are wasting your money.

This should have been stated in the description to avoid confusion and annoyance.

  "..GREAT FUN ACTION COMEDY.."

| | See all sdx800's reviews (1814)

This is a great feel good movie all round, the story is simple but plays out really well with plenty of action and plenty of laughs!! The cast is really good Pine and Hardy are both brilliant and make a good team and Reese Witherspoon is totally worth fighting over as she has never looked so HOT she is some serious eye candy!! I think everyone can walk away from this with a smile on their face, great paced action comedy dont miss it.

  'FRIENDSHIP ?

| | See all rbmusicman's reviews (896)

c.i a agents 'fdr foster' ( chris pine ) and 'tuck' ( tom hardy ) are partners watching each others back when the chips are down, most of all however they are ''best friends''
'tuck' meets a girl 'lauren' ( reese witherspoon ) via an on-line dating agency, 'fdr' meets the same girl in a video store.
competion between the two friends becomes intense as they both do everything to spoil the others chances with 'lauren'
friendship between the two is put to the test.
the film with 'tuck' and 'fdr's' work simering in the background is often quite funny as the two go to great lengths to belittle the other.
well worth a watch at least.

  Really bad

| | See all Zorglub33's reviews (3)

I saw this movie a few weeks ago in a plane.
It is certainly not the best place to watch a movie but even in the theater, it will still be a bad movie.
The actors look like they're from a bad TV show, the story is ridiculous, the action is almost OK sometimes, music is bad,...
Save your money, buy another movie.

  SPY VS. SPY

| | See all SECTION8's reviews (1336)

There can't be many who welcomed the news of McG returning to his roots to make a spy based action comedy after two Charlie's Angels movies, although the prospect of Chris Pine and Tom Hardy as the Y chromosome's answer to Charlie's Angels might've pricked up a few female ears. For the first twenty minutes things start off on a less than promising with a clumsily shot gun toting action set piece atop a Hong Kong skyscraper, punctuated by lame one liners and bursts of sub AC/DC hard guitar. The sight of Pine and Hardy rocking sharp suits aside, you sense you're in for a long 97 /104 minutes (depending if you watch the cinema cut or the superior extended cut)
It's a relief, then, to discover that the opener is pure red herring. Their rooftop bothering antics deemed too attention grabbing, our boys end up relegated to desk jobs at their CIA base, with nothing better to think about than their desultory love lives. Enter Reese Witherspoon's unlucky in love Lauren whom, thanks to a convoluted web dating subplot, the BFFs inadvertently both begin dating. Despite what the title would have you believe, this doesn't actually mean war so much as an onslaught of mild, very enjoyable bromantic bickering, as Pine and Hardy make an uneasy gentleman's pact, and proceed to compare notes on dates, engage in surveillance based one upmanship, and make passive aggressive swipes at one another's manhood. Given scripter Simon Kinberg's previous scribing gig on Sherlock Holmes, it's not surprising how much pleasure lies in the central co dependent friendship although as with Holmes, it's not so much the writing as the easy comedic chemistry between the leads that sells it. Pine and Hardy both seem to be having so much fun in their loose, improv inflected scenes that it's impossible not to have some yourself. As compelling as the bromance is, the womance gets a decent look in too Witherspoon's got comedic skills to spare but here she's largely playing the straight woman to US TV star Chelsea Handler, a surprise highlight as Lauren's pragmatic, zinger laden best friend. For all that this is plainly a rom brom com, there are some concessions to the action caper it once appeared to be the CIA base looks more like a leftover bit of JJ Abrams' Enterprise set than a government building, while the ending dovetails swiftly into a bookending action blow out and an overly neat triangle resolution.
Director McG apparently filmed multiple endings, and I can't help thinking there must have been a more inspiring one than this in the mix.
In all this is a very entertaining action comedy that will not bother the likes of Bond, Bourne or Ethan Hunt, But watching really charismatic people be really funny seldom gets old, and they're served reasonably well by a tight, disciplined, funny script that capitalises on their game charms.
