Did You Know?


British independent watchmaker Peter Speake-Marin was asked to be a consultant for the scenes where Pierce Brosnan is at a workbench. Upon meeting, Brosnan was so impressed by Peter, that he purchased one of his watches, and subsequently, Speake-Marin asked Brosnan to become a brand ambassador, to which he agreed. Pierce Brosnan is possibly the most high-profile celebrity to become an ambassador for any independent watchmaker. Prior to his official role as ambassador, Pierce can be seen wearing a Speake-Marin "Piccadilly" wristwatch during filming, in candid photographs, post-production, and a pink gold model during his 2015 Super Bowl commercial for Kia. In the movie, the store, located at 29 Bruton Street, is labelled "PSM Bespoke Watchmakers", "PSM" is an abbreviation commonly used by Peter Speake-Marin. In 2017, he left the company to focus on an educational enterprise. See more »


The CAC identification card used by government employees does not have any sort of 'tracking' chip. The chip that the bad guys hacked to enable them to track Adams was just the normal chip with security credentials (authentication and encryptions keys). See more »

Great Story, Worth Seeing...
31 May 2015 | by TangoXSee all my reviews

Like most, I decided to read the reviews on this site.

For me, the review was one telling me to give it a miss. I am happy to say I ignored that bad review. Really, this film is worth a watch, great story which could be hard to follow for some. As you do need to pay attention, to what is going on, otherwise you will not understand the story at all.

This could be the reason, why some have said it is not worth the look. Because unlike most of the films out today. This one has you doing some mental work, which I found refreshing.

A good line up of stars in this, and the way it was put together made me give it 9 out of 10. I would have given it 10 out of 10, because I wanted to see what happened afterwards.

Worth a watch, full of action and will keep you wanting more all through the film. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.
