Spies202 Bourne Identity

MATT DAMON AS JASON BOURNE IN THE BOURNE IDENTITY FRANCHISE

There’s nothing more deadly than a spy who doesn’t know he’s a spy until he starts snapping necks. Jason Bourne doesn’t know who he is, which almost makes him even deadlier since he’s got nothing to lose. Bourne doesn’t exactly go looking for trouble, and he actually ends up telling those in pursuit to stay away in order to avoid conflict. But his covert agency forces Bourne to bring the fight to their doorstep, and he doesn’t hesitate to take down everyone and everything trying to keep him from moving on from his dark past.

Spies303 James Bond

AGENT 007 IN JAMES BOND

Bond has the greatest gadgets, girls and cars. He’s seen several iterations, all with their own flare. Sean Connery is probably unanimously the best James Bond, but Daniel Craig is certainly giving him a run for his money, and even Roger Moore is a great representation of 007. Bond is cause for a genre all his own besides just being a series of spy movies. There are people who have never seen a single James Bond movie who still know his name, and that’s reason enough to be the best spy of all-time.

Spies404 Taken

LIAM NEESON AS BRYAN MILLS IN TAKEN

Bryan Mills may be a retired CIA operative, but that doesn’t stop his special set of skills from coming in handy when his daughter gets kidnapped.

Spies505 Salt

ANGELINA JOLIE AS EVELYN SALT IN SALT

It doesn’t get much better for Angelina Jolie than taking a role that was originally meant for a man and turning it into an outlandish action role for a woman. Tom Cruise was actually approached to play this role, but he already saw plenty of action as Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible by the time this project came around. Jolie’s character is one tough woman who doesn’t go down without a hellacious fight.

Spies606 Kingsman

COLIN FIRTH AS HARRY HART IN KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE

The member of the Kingsman is not only dashing and polite, but shows that he is also tough, even if they’re driven by a chip that’s controlling their aggression from space.

Spies707 Mr. and Mrs. Smith

BRAD PITT AND ANGELINA JOLIE AS JOHN AND JANE SMITH IN MR. AND MRS. SMITH

Since these two are much deadlier as a duo, we get a twofer from John and Jane Smith. After bringing Jason Bourne to the party a few years earlier, director Doug Liman journeyed into remake territory for a much more fun round of spy action. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are both funny and lethal in this flick that’s quite an entertaining blend of genuinely good action and solid comedy. Whenever I see this movie I always thinks it’s a shame that Adam Brody didn’t go on to have a more successful film career, but I digress. For better or worse, we also wouldn’t have the power couple of Pitt and Jolie if it wasn’t for this movie.

Spies101 MI5

TOM CRUISE AS ETHAN HUNT IN MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – ROGUE NATION (2015)

With the IMF now disbanded and Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) out in the cold, a new threat — called the Syndicate — soon emerges. The Syndicate is a network of highly skilled operatives who are dedicated to establishing a new world order via an escalating series of terrorist attacks. Faced with what may be the most impossible mission yet, Ethan gathers his team and joins forces with Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), a disavowed British agent who may or may not be a member of this deadly rogue nation.
