Connie Nielsen (Sumner) & Derek Jacobi (Ross) both played in Gladiator. See more »
The memorial plaque to William Donald, beside which Stratton and Sumner pause while walking along the Thames, in fact exists in Postman's Park in the City of London, not on the riverside wall depicted in the film. See more »

Average to less than average - made for TV sort of quality
This is OK, to a little less than OK.
WTF is Connie Nielsen doing with some god-awful attempt at a well- spoken Brit? That was embarrassing and utterly cringeworthy to watch. A world away from her performance in Gladiator.
Special effects are well below par - and a competent film unit from the BBC would have done far, far better. Indeed - Dr Who is better made than this for explosive FX.
Fairly lame and clunky handover sequence during bus sequence from the entrance of Battersea Park to Millbrook Proving track! Boat sequence that preceded it was fairly good though. Sounds like the music owes a fair bit to the most recent Mission Impossible films (Rogue Nation) also...
Overall - reasonable popcorn fodder. Don't expect too much from it - it's totally generic.
