Goofs

When Johnny Worricker walks towards the ferry then off the ferry, he casually carries two cases of wine in his left arm. The wine alone would weigh approx 18Kg (40lbs) not to mention the bottles, but the ease with which he carries them suggests that the cases were empty. See more »

Good finish to the trilogy!
23 October 2014 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

I really like 'Page Eight', the first movie in this trilogy. 'Turks & Caicos', the second movie, wasn't as good, but it was OK. This last movie was as good as the first one! All in all, a very good set. I really enjoyed them. If you enjoyed 'Tinker, Taylor, Soldier, Spy' (1979) and 'Smiley's People' (1982) both by the BBC then you will enjoy this series too. It's the same style of movies/mini-series about the world of spies. The old BBC mini-series are classics, both of them, and 10 out of 10. This trilogy is 8/10. Bill Nighy (as Johnny Worricker) is the lead character in all three movies and he does a great job. Ralph Fiennes is also very good as the Prime Minister. The only actor I didn't like was Helena Bonham Carter: like someone else has already stated she didn't make a very convincing spy.
