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 »

Quotes

Margot Tyrrell: You know him well?
Reverend Bernard Towers: I helped him through some difficult days. When he was a student, he loved the idea of faith, the life of the church. So, someone had to point out that he didn't actually believe.
Margot Tyrrell: And that was you. And he didn't.
Reverend Bernard Towers: No. He wanted to, more than anything, but sadly that's not the same thing.

The end is Nighy
20 April 2014 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

A remarkable cast was assembled for this: Ralph Fiennes, Helena Bonham-Carter, Bill Nighy, Olivia Wilde, a who's who of British acting. There are spies and politics, a prestigious writer, so why did this end up being so dull? It is hard to fault the acting, but the script somehow manages to plod along with barely any tension. It seems more like a talking shop from an Islington dinner party than an action packed spy thriller. I enjoyed Fiennes' suspiciously Blair-like prime minister, and indeed the performances all round are fine, with Mr Nighy portraying a silken if disgruntled ex-spook. Yet the action, such as it is,, trundles along at a funereal pace.

Perhaps Mr Hare's undoubted talents are better suited to the stage than to the moving picture. I can't see this leading him to being asked to write.a Jason Bourne screenplay any time soon.
