Stuart Wilson and girl friend are pursued by George Sewall and Vladek Sheybal
15 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This excellent spy-action-thriller tale of pursuit is very well done and intelligent. Stuart Wilson, whom I had not seen before, is strong as an ex-MI5 agent blackmailed back into doing a seemingly simple task of delivering a package (the ultimate Macguffin) in Iceland. He hooks up with his girl friend, Ragnheiður Steindórsdóttir. Her part is beyond the usual female accompanying part. She becomes integral to the story. Wilson finds himself pursued and he suspects the pursuer is an old KGB nemesis that he once wounded and made impotent, Vladek Sheybal. He's been a screen presence from "Kanal" onwards to "From Russia with Love" and beyond. Wilson's operations chief in Iceland, George Sewall, is after him too when he deviates from the scripted delivery, necessarily if he wants to live.

We see a great deal of the Icelandic volcanic landscapes, made good use of in the story itself. Wilson has to sort out the puzzle of his tenuous endangered position from a distance, so to speak, with not much help from the "main office" in England, although he does manage one phone call. The competent and clever Wilson has to devise plans while on the run with Steindórsdóttir.

This is a hard-hitting, tense, terse thriller without sentimentality.
