Salting the Battlefield 2014

Worricker: Salting the Battlefield

     This is the concluding episode of the Johnny Worricker Spy trilogy.  MI5 agent Johnny and his ex-girlfriend Margot are traveling back and forth across Europe to stay ahead of the security services on their trail.  The Prime Minister is also out for their blood.  Everyone including their family and friends are being watched.  Worricker is running out of money and he’ll need to wrap this adventure up soon.
     I didn’t think this movie was very interesting.  The British can take a pea, put it under the mattress and make a scandal out of it?  I wondered why this was even made?  2* (I didn’t like this movie)
