The Story of SPIES IN DISGUISE
Super spy Lance Sterling (Will Smith) and scientist Walter Beckett (Tom Holland) are poles apart. Lance is smooth, suave and debonair while Walter is tagged as a weirdo courtesy his unique experiments. An ultimate mission for the survival of the mankind brings them together. How will this unique team coordinate when cool suave Lance turns into a pigeon.

SPIES IN DISGUISE movie review
The flamboyance of Lance Sterling (voiced by Will Smith) and the teen kid innocence of scientist Walter Beckett (Tom Holland) make an endearing family animated action. Colorful with adorable characters having giant heads and big eyes making it an instant connect with its target audience – the generation awed by video games. The visual razzle-dazzle has good heart and an eye for a ‘peaceful’ future.

The surprising creations by Walter Beckett that promote non-violence are interestingly in tune with today’s times. Blue Sky Studios gets the setting right for a pleasing family holiday outing.

Powered by terrific voiceovers lead by Will Smith, followed by Walter Beckett

And marvelously supported by Ben Mendelsohn as Killian with Rashida Jones, Karen Gillan, and DJ Khaled chipping in with adequate support.

However, the plot is damn predictable and this animated espionage adventure fails to make a memorable sweep. Though it has a message beneath, it fails to dig deep within and just end up as scratching the surface without making any enlightening dent.

Final words
PIES IN DISGUISE – this animated espionage adventure is a holiday treat indeed with a message beneath powered by Will Smith’s incredible voice-over and the charming interplay between Smith and Holland throughout.
