Spooks : The Greater Good (2015)


 Stars:  Stars: Peter Firth, Kit Harington, Jennifer Ehle, Tuppence Middleton

Directed by an Indian, starring English actors, where the terrorist is an Arab/Pakistani and the plot is once again how the English and the Americans counteract the enemies, who are as usual within the MI-5. Also demonstrating how easy it is to double cross each other. For the greater the good someone at the top thinks that if they can make the MI-5 look incompetent then the CIA can take over the British secret service.

Peter Firth as Harry Pearce brings Spooks to the big screen. If you know Spooks the TV series then you need no explanation. If you are not familiar with it then you still don’t need any explanation.

Harry is forced to handover Qasim (Elyes Gabel) a terrorist, in doing so; Harry is forced to go underground in order to prove that it was an inside job. Trusting nobody, Harry seeks the help of newbie Will Holloway (Kit Harington) who in my opinion looked like Qasim.

spooksWas this film worthy of the big screen? I am not too sure. All the right ingredients for a thriller but for me I felt I was watching my regular Spooks series on big screen with a bag of popcorn.

Don’t get me wrong it had all the thrills and spills, held its course but I wanted something spicier.
