Goofs

In the news sequence near the end of the film, one of the scrolling headlines says "Spurs win Champions League Final" and then another says "Battle for Xmas No.1 hots up". The Champions League final is always in May, so it's unlikely that the news for that day would contain anything about the Xmas No.1 See more »

Came out of now where
19 July 2012 | by bigpauly01See all my reviews

what a great film, especially as I really was not expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. It did not start off like your usual kind of terrorist, hunt and eliminate movie. Almost a few stories going on at once, I thought it was good character development, you have to concentrate to keep up in between the present and past sequences, but that's what made this film different in its style and approach of the topic. I sure we can say that the main terrorist is certainly dead, no no chance of bringing him back, but I would like to see the character of the secret agent continued in a secondary movie with a new task at hand and a cleaned up loyal team (not to give to much away). for my part, I enjoyed this film, like the opening scene, and the end conclusion especially, didn't see it coming at all, although i'm probably not the quickest film analyst on here. Nice, gritty British thriller with an attractive directing style and plot build up.
