What all sum up great spy movies is breathtaking stunts, killer plots, fabulous mind games and some insane acting. We are here with 5 greatest spy movies that you just can’t afford to miss if you love thrillers:
1. The Spy Who Loved Me: This was Roger Moore’s third Bond flick. It was absurd, camp and utterly brilliant. With exotic locations, women, gadgetry and one of the greatest movie cars of all time, this movie is just too good.
2. Mission Impossible (1996): The flick has all the hi-tech gadgets, exploding aquariums and cryptic biblical references which have made it an outstanding spy movie. Moreover, how can I forget to mention the presence of Tom Cruise in it?
3. The Bourne Supremacy (2004): In this spy thriller on steroids Matt Damon is starring as anti-Bond Jason Bourne. Directed by Paul Greengrass, it is the second one of the Bourne series. In the movie the hero is out for taking the revenge after the murder of his girlfriend.
4. The Fourth Protocol (1987): This movie is a cold war thriller. In this nuclear paranoia, a le Carre-esque hero and the gloss and preposterous blockbuster plot of a 007 flick are mixed together. And I must say that it is best of both worlds.
5. North by Northwest (1959): Alfred Hitchcock’s this flick is a suspenseful, classic caper and magnificent thriller. It is one of the greatest films of all times.
