I enjoyed this movie. Although I had only seen 1 season of the television show that this movie is a sequel/continuation of,it didn't hinder my being able to follow the plot or characters. In fact, after watching, I may go back and watch more of the tv seasons. It's a good action movie, great for a Sunday afternoon.
MI 5 was a show that came to American audiences with a new name. in England it was called Spooks and launched many a career. This film brings Game of Thrones' Kit Harrington into their universe and he fits in very well.
