25 best spy movies ever

We've hidden our list of the top sneaky spy films in plain sight. Or have we?

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997)

The first – and arguably best – Austin Powers film sees Mike Meyers artfully play both Austin Powers (a horny 60's spy with questionable dental hygiene) and Dr. Evil, an unimaginatively named super-villain with a rebellious teenage son. Jokes and puns fly thick and fast as the bumbling Meyers and his beautiful Brtish partner Elizabeth Hurley attempt to thwart Dr. Evil's dubious plan.

Gleefully homages/spoofs everything from the 1960s Casino Royale to Adam Adamant Lives! A fourth Austin Powers film is currently in the works – it had better be an improvement on Goldmember.
