Nice compact little thriller with Cold War overtones
15 March 2003 | by (Old Bridge, NJ) – See all my reviews

DEADLY RECRUITS is an unusual and unexpectedly intelligent spy thriller made for British television. A motorcycle accident leads two government agents to investigate a series of disappearances from among the best and brightest students at Oxford University. The case takes some unexpected twists. The plot can be a little hard to follow at times and requires careful attention as well as a nodding acquaintance with British slang on occasions. There is also some nice dry English wit. The cast is good, particularly Michael Culver, a familiar face from films including THUNDERBALL and THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. Terence Stamp plays a most irritating government agent. Also look for Art Malik as a student.
