This Christmas, Fox and Blue Sky Studio released Spies in Disguise, directed by Nick Bruno. A fun, adorable, entertaining and action-packed movie, this deserves a warm gift for children and families in this December.
The subject of spies was not new from the James Bond series, Jason Bourne to Kingsman. Even cartoons, the audience is familiar with Totally Spies! or Kim Possible. Spies in Disguise is like a mixture of two elements: cartoon and protagonist who is the elegant spy guy. At first, the audience will think this is just an animated version of James Bond. However, Spies in Disguise does not follow the familiar motif we often see. Instead, the film goes towards pure entertainment, fun and hit the audience is children. And thanks to the understanding of the direction and audience itself, the film has brought extremely refreshing moments for the audience.
The content of Spies in Disguise is inspired by the short animated film Pigeon: Impossible by screenwriter – animator Lucas Martell. Pigeon: Impossible, although only 5 minutes, took 5 years to implement. The film is about a pigeon holding the “nuclear suitcase” of the US President. Coming to Spies in Disguise, the script writers Cindy David, Lloyd Copeland and Lloyd Taylor created a richer and more spy story. With the main character is the super cool guy, who is admired by many people Lance Sterling (Will Smith). However, Lance was harmed by bad guys and in the process of troubleshooting, he was accidentally turned into a pigeon in a bold experiment by assistant Walter Beckett (Tom Holland). Pigeons are the perfect cover for Lance to act. However, under the guise of the dove, Lance cannot perform action scenes and use high-tech items normally. And many funny things happened from there.
Because of the purpose of entertainment, in general, the plot of Spies in Disguise is nothing too sublime. There are even moments when an adult audience will find it quite silly. However, the extremely cute and silly pieces can make the audience forgive it all. Especially when Lance Sterling was turned into a dove. The lovely shape and the series of humorous lines of this character make viewers laugh. In addition, there are other pigeons that are a strong supporter for Sterling, while contributing the most amusing to the film.
