25 best spy movies ever

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

Goldfinger (1964)

James Bond 007 is the most useless secret agent in the world.

In his third cinematic outing, Bond does very little spying – he saves the day by being repeatedly knocked out and conveyed by the villains to a new location, where they tell him a bit more of their plans. And he doesn't even manage to disarm the bomb at the end: that job is left to an unnamed scientist.

Nevertheless, we love Goldfinger – it's the quintessential Bond film. When Bond's about to get sliced in half, you could cut the tension in the air with… well, with a laser beam. And who could forget the brilliantly-named Pussy Galore? They don't make them like this anymore.
