MI5 personnel are caught up in a traffic jam in London while escorting the CIA's most wanted terrorist to an arranged CIA handover point, when he is suddenly rescued by armed men on motorbikes. Harry Pearce, the head of Counter-Terrorism at MI5 is blamed for the terrorist escaping. Especially as Harry disappeared shortly after the incident. An ex-agent, Will Holloway, and protégé of Harry's is recalled by MI5 to assist in finding and bringing Harry in. However Harry has disappeared for a reason. Certain that there is a traitor in a senior position in MI5, he enlists the somewhat reluctant Will to help him in uncovering the rat or rats concerned. Written by Woodland Outlaw

Best film I've seen in a long time
12 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

This film is a breath of fresh air from all the americanised rubbish at the cinema and rammed down your throat by popular culture.

Loved the story, nothing was overdone it was just done to the right level. This film is not about explosions or situations carefully choreographed specifically to make you feel a certain emotion to tick a box and appeal to a demographic that has been studied by a panel of experts - it's just a fantastic film that is what bond should be. Subtle, engaging and....British.

Kit was awesome in this film. Great actor with a lot more range than I assumed having watched GoT.

I haven't watched the series yet, but I will now.
