(mbc.net) Nathan Muir (Robert Redford) is a longtime CIA operative just one day from retirement.  He's mentored many other agents over the years, including Tom Bishop (Brad Pitt), who's been arrested in China while attempting to free a group of American captives.

If no entity claims Bishop within 24 hours the Chinese will execute him.  The president has just inked a trade agreement with China, and rescuing Bishop could jeopardize the deal.  The CIA asks for Muir's assistance, but he knows not to take anything the agency says at face value.

Spy Game was a commercial success, garnering $143 million at the box office.
