I have always been a huge fan of the spy genre. The missions are seemingly impossible, the agents are lethal and the gadgets are dangerously cool. Another huge appeal of this genre is that the conflicts are not just physical. In the best spy movies two highly skilled agents from opposing organizations don’t simply outgun one another, but they need to outwit the enemy agent to complete the mission. Usually this adds another layer to the conflict which makes it personal. Here is a list of some of my favorite entertainment produced in this genre.
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit
The Bourne Identity
Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol
Marvel’s Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D
Marvel’s Agent Carter
Splinter Cell (Any of them)
Metal Gear Solid (Most of them)
