A titan of industry is sent to prison after she's caught insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America's latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget.
Susan Cooper is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency's most dangerous missions. But when her partner falls off the grid and another top agent is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global crisis.Written by

When Susan and Sergio are shown flying the Eurocopter helicopter, the aircraft is shown responding to them manipulating the "stick" (the cyclic), as if it were a conventional fixed-wing aircraft. The controls work entirely differently in a helicopter than in an airplane. When the helicopter begins to dive towards the lake for instance, Susan is shown pulling back on the cyclic. Doing this would result in a substantial climb in an airplane, but is not what primarily makes a helicopter climb. The cyclic moves the helicopter in a direction - forwards, backwards and to the side. The collective (the control on the left side of the seat that the pilot moves up and down), changes the pitch of the main rotor blades and create lift. To stop the descent, Susan should pull up on the collective. The helicopter doesn't react appropriately to any of the control movements we see either of them do. See more »

Spy 2015 is an over-marketed, over-rated flop. What were anyone thinking when they made this film is beyond me, it's not funny, it doesn't stay true to it's genres by any means. It's like they tried to copy the old spy films with a play mix on Police Academy, did they really think that the whole world had completely got sucked into "hey this is hot"? First off the line-up wow???!!! This film may have made Jason Statham lose the last bit of acting credibility just by being in it. Now I must say Melissa McCarthy has been in a few sort of funny films but what happen here? What is the big hype with "Spy (2015)"? It's almost as bad as the (2014) Annie movie remake.
I do feel quite mentally shot down after watching this as I was hoping to see a comedy which never got me to reached the point of a smile. Was there an actual point or story? Did everyone who watched this miss something?
Sad to say but, Spy (2015) is for sure a wasted effort to recommend to anyone. If the're were anything good about this film, maybe it got left out when it was being edited.
