The major BBC TV spy thriller sensation Spooks finally receives the big screen treatment. A blast for fans and newcomers alike, Spooks: The Greater Good brings the intrigue and thrills iconic to the series.

Kit Harrington (Game of Thrones) lends his charm and sense of urgency to proceedings as Will Holloway, who must team with disgraced MI5 traitor and former chief Harry Pearce, played by Peter Firth who delivers one of his best performances yet; brilliantly altering his sophisticated role from the series.

Together, they must track down a terrorist who is planning an attack on London. As they race across the city and attempt to thwart the attack, Will must decide who to trust as Harry’s intentions begin to blur, and the question of what is really on the line for the greater good begins to form.

True to the series, this is an intelligent and thoroughly refined British take on espionage action thrillers.
