SPIES IN DISGUISE (Released to Theaters USA 2019)


Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì 

Spies in Disguise—not spectacular—needs some improvement. While the animation is good, both the story and its presentation work more at the average level. Listen for Tom Holland's voice as Walter, the gadget inventor. Remember this actor played Spider-Man in the film, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Nathan Drake in the movie, Uncharted. Another 'cool' in this film is to hear Will Smith voicing one of the animated spies.

The spy, Lance Sterling, is loved by his co-workers, and one of the best spies at the H.T.U.V. Spy Agency. He needs to talk to Walter Beckett, his gadget man; so, he locates Walter on GPS and walks in on Walter as he completes his new pigeon serum. Lance accidentally drinks the serum and Walter helplessly watches as Lance turns into a pigeon. Now Lance needs Walter's help to complete the new mission which becomes a bigger adventure than anticipated.
