While draining a small lake to make room for a new housing development, a crew finds the wreckage of an old missing Cold War-era British Air Force bomber, with the remains of the pilot at the controls. An investigator assigned by British Military Intelligence to find out what happened soon discovers that there's more to the incident than there appears to be, and it involves smuggling, the black market, the Russian KGB, the Nazi SS and a series of murders.

An unexpected gem
8 November 2006 | by (Washington State) – See all my reviews

I found this movie in a one dollar, 4 DVD, package of "War Classics". I use such packaged DVDs as fodder to watch while I exercise. Usually they are mind numbing time passers. Imaging my consternation when "Cold War Killers" came on. After the first 20 minutes or so, I was compelled to stop exercising and concentrate on the excellent movie. The performers were very believable, even the character actors. It was reminiscent of the best post-war English ensemble movies. Terence Stamp, the lead, made a much more convincing secret agent than Patrick Macnee. The plot was complicated enough to keep my attention, as it unfolded clearly and logically.
