What do glitter kitten gadgets, spies, and pigeons all have in common? You will find them all in the new movie Spies in Disguise. Lance Sterling (Will Smith) is a top spy who works alone. Walter Beckett (Tom Holland) is a scientist trying to make the world a better place with his gadgets. When things for Lance go awry, he seeks out Walter, and one of his gadgets, to help him disappear. But Walter’s definition of disappearing is slightly different from Lance’s, and Lance finds himself turned into a Pigeon. Finding that he can no longer do things on his own Lance must team up with Walter to save the world.
Spies in Disguise offers up an all-star cast, beautiful animation, and laughs. Tom Holland, Will Smith, and their pigeon sidekicks have the standout performances of the movie. Rated PG Spies in Disguise does contain animated action and violence, rude humor, and does contain some animated nudity (butts) that might make it a little too intense for really young kids. I give Spies in Disguise a B-. Spies in Disguise is in theaters now. (R. Barry)
