Spooks - movie review
What's the difference between a Hollywood production and one from the U.K. ?
For one, production values for one, and certainly there's a whole lot more explosions in a US film. You are also more likely to have big names in it.
However what the bbc and other UK productions bring is a tighter plot, better dialogue and hopefully enough people who prefer a good yarn to just mega sets and bangs.
The premise is simple : an operation to transport a top terrorist goes south and the top agent in charge seems to disappear or go rouge.
The rest of the movie is a chase to stop the terrorist from bombing London and find the mole.
So does it work ? Sans the big bangs bombs and even babes?
Actually it's pretty alright and its gripping enough to occupy two hours of your life.
