Smiley's People meets TV's The Professionals. Features the sexiest bomb-assembly scene in film history plus a rare decent performance from Pierce Brosnan - like Arnie, he's at his best when playing emotionless, laconic killing machines. Amusing London Underground scene too.
Icy Pierce comes to Britain with the intention to build a little atomic bomb. Thanks to Michael Caine, it will not explode (this is NOT a spoiler as to my knowledge, London is still on the map). Note that the movie's just been released in France (zone 2) on a perfect DVD. You have to see these British green pastures and the white snow of Siberia to understand why digital technology was invented. Recommended.
