Film review: Spy



This action/comedy see the whole world in danger when it is revealed that a nuclear bomb lies in an unknown location.

The only person able to identify its location knows the identities of all of the CIA agents.

A fresh agent is needed and recruited- a desk bound CIA analyst whose action to date has been pen pushing. Welcome to the fold Susan Cooper!

Undergoing immediate training (which never runs smoothly in the movies) Susan undertakes a steep learning curve and whilst trying to convince peers that she knows what she is doing, also has the world, quite literarily, on her shoulders.

Can she pull it off and save the planet?

Starring Melissa McCarthy, as Susan Cooper, this film has just the right amount of comedy with a great plot and is an easy watch.
