List Rules Vote up your favorite espionage films that were released in the 2000s

The best ‘00s spy films combine elements of classic espionage films, such as sex, murder, betrayal, and international plots, with more modern twists. Although spy films have been popular since the 1960s, they had a bit of a revival in the '90s. Film-goers were excited again by espionage flicks, and these great spy films from the 2000s prove it. 


The 2000s saw the rise of Jason Bourne, the amnesiac super-spy portrayed by Matt Damon. The
Bourne film series includes The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, and The Bourne Ultimatum. 007 himself also appears on this list. Daniel Craig plays the MI6 operative in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. In addition, many of the greatest ‘00s spy movies draw inspiration from the War on Terror. Films like Syriana and Body of Lies explore the fragmented world of Middle Eastern espionage and CIA betrayals.
