Description

At the turn of the 20th century, one remarkable man single-handedly tried to alter the course of history. Cold, ruthless and enigmatic, this Russian-born British agent radically transformed modern espionage techniques and set the mold for a new kind of secret agent--the super spy.

REILLY: ACE OF SPIES is the thrilling dramatization of the real-life adventures of Agent ST-1, aka Sidney Reilly, the inspiration behind Ian Fleming's James Bond. Shot in glorious period detail, one heart-pulsing mission after another captures the arc of Reilly's brilliant career. From stealing top-secret Russian oil information to a near overthrow of the Bolshevik Revolution to his final capture by Stalin's forces in 1918, Reilly's exploits are at times so daring and reckless it's hard to believe they really happened.

Starring Sam Neill (Jurassic Park, The Hunt for Red October), REILLY: ACE OF SPIES includes all 12 original episodes on DVD for the first time, and features a bonus documentary examining the final, mysterious days of this legendary figure.

      Over 30 years later and this is still my favorite spy series! What I learned about Russian history would never be found in a book or course of study. World history teachers--bring this DVD to class for your students to watch. This movie was surely a tour de force for Sam Neill so early in his career. You will remember Ace of Spies long after you watched it.

            There is nothing negative about this. This is a masterpiece. It is a lesson in history. Most of all, the performance by Sam Neill is outstanding. His portrayal of Syney Reilly stays in your mind long after the last scene and especially the last scene. So does the music that prefaces each of the series...beautiful and haunting. I saw this and I loved it in the 80's. I saw it again recently and loved it more. It tops my all time favorites.
