Movie Review: Spies in Disguise


20th Century Studios

Spies in Disguise is a animated film with a distinct style for different characters.

  Spies in Disguise is an animated film that really focused on the differences between the main duo, Spy Lance and the inventor Walter. Their personalities are practically the opposite and that’s what made it difficult for them to have to work together. 

   They put their differences aside in order to save the world from a revenge-seeking cybernetic terrorist. Lance turned himself into a pigeon and made things quite difficult, as he couldn’t quite function in the world. Thankfully, Walter was there to help him as much as he could.

It was nice to see the point of view of Lance when he was on a mission as a pigeon struggling to adapt to his new temporary form.

   The movie’s art style was very soft lively, although the shapes of the people are all very different. This made the unique characters stand out of the crowd and you can just tell who is important and who’s just in the background.

   Although the film was evidently targeted at a younger audience due to the way they cover up words that hint towards profanity, it is still enjoyable for older audiences.

However, the film, it was also very predictable.This made it a bit boring because it was easy to assume what was going to happen. Perhaps this is because the movie was aimed at a younger audience. 

   For example, when Walter and Lance were arguing over what to do about the Lance’s pigeon form when he was called out on a mission, it was so obvious what was going to occur next. And that made it a bit less enjoyable.
