Quotes

Simon Templar: [narrating] The President of Bulanda. Showman, egotist and devotee of murder, torture and brutality. Surprising he's got the courage to come to England. Almost as surprising as the fact he's already survived three assassination attempts and two coup d'etats. One of these days, his luck's gonna run out.
