MI-5 (SPOOKS: THE GREATER GOOD is the UK
title) is a bookend and epilogue to the great MI-5 tv series (known as SPOOKS
in the UK)
which ran for ten seasons. It can serve
as a standalone movie, but I hope fans of the movie who haven’t seen the series
will check out the TV show since this movie is also a reward to the fans of the
series. Harry Pearce (Colin Firth) is
the heart and center of the series and the movie. Section 9 chief Harry Pearce
from MI-5 when he lets a terrorist escape during a routine handover to protect
innocent lives and the lives of his agents.
He goes underground to find out who betrayed MI-5 to allow the
terrorists to rescue their leader and he recruits ex-MI-5 agent Will Holloway
(Kit Harington who is best known as Jon Snow to GAME OF THRONES fans) to help
stop a terrorist attack on London. Will
is first brought in by MI-5 to help track down and bring in Harry, but he
learns a bigger game is in play as he must decide to work with MI-5 or with
MI-5 is great action thriller which makes me
miss the TV
series and want to rewatch the show, but I’m glad the series has an additional
104 minutes to provide us the fans with a new story. It isn’t a perfect
movie as the climax shows (rest
of the plot is more plausible while some of the climax is a little cliché), but
it is a much better spy movie than SPECTRE on a smaller budget than that latest
James Bond movie.
THE MAKING OF MI-5 is a ten minute promotional
with cast and crew interviews and clips from the movie.
The three deleted scenes are scenes cut from
the final third
of the movie which would have slowed down the pacing.
Also included is a code to download and stream
a digital HD
copy of the movie.
you’re a fan of the MI-5 series, Jason Bourne, 24, or James Bond, you should
give the MI-5 movie a watch and maybe even go track down the 10 seasons of one
of the best action spy series ever made.
