Trivia

The aerial shot of the CIA headquarters is stock footage from The Bourne Identity (2002). The establishing shot of the CIA headquarters entrance gate is from Spy Game (2001), and is in fact a location in England, not the real CIA headquarters. See more »

[assassin hesitates, then throws grenade]
Derek Jennings: Grenade! Get the grenade!
Derek Jennings: [as assassin flees] Drop the grenade! Drop the grenade!

A lively and exciting start - but it goes downhill fast in the final section
10 September 2004 | by (Somerset, England) – See all my reviews

An interesting joint venture between BBC, Fox and TNT. The problems of international cooperation between security agencies loom large in the mini-series (shown in three parts by the BBC). But they also seem to have affected the production itself. The first two parts were exciting, despite having to keep tabs on fast-moving events across the globe and track a number of one-dimensional characters.

The final section tried to give some more flesh to these characters - and that's when the problems started. The two 'leads' (at least their names came up before the title) were pathetic, with wooden acting, embarrassing dialogue and trashy sentimentality. Who are Dylan McDermott and Juliana Marguelis and how did they get the leads? They are handicapped even further with silly names - Marin and Max Canary, though not as silly as Tom Skerritt's "Acton Sandman"!

The 'minor' actors, notably Bernard Hill - superb as a grizzled security chief showing Skerritt what real acting is all about - along with Piter Fattouche, who triumphs over the disadvantage of being cast as the "good Moslem" and Jemma Redgrave, who was absolutely brilliant as a troubled British security agent. But the final part had too much of the Americans, presumably to justify the Fox/TNT money, and it fell away sadly. So the high opinion I had of The Grid after Part two was drastically modified by the end of Part three, confirming my belief that I do not want to see IMDb reviews from reviewers who have only seen part of a series.
