Spy is a great James Bond movie. But with a woman.

Saw Spy today. Just like Galaxy Quest is a good Star Trek movie, Spy is a good James Bond, getting all the tropes right even as they twist them for comic scenes.

Not only does the movie open with a typical Bondian action sequence, it has great opening credits and music. Even better than some Bond movies.

I can’t find a video of the opening sequence but here is the music video of the song, that easily gets the point across.

Compare it to Tom Jones with Thunderball:

Or Shirley Bassey with Goldfinger

Plus Jason Statham is extremely funny.
