An MI6 agent is forced to go on the run with his long-lost brother, an alcoholic English soccer hooligan

This action comedy may well live up to its star billing as one of the worst films of 2016, but it does at least feature some good railway scenes. There is a ‘present day’ scene filmed at Tilbury Town station with a Class 357 ‘Electrostar’ EMU arriving, which is then followed by ‘flashback’ sequences filmed at North Weald station on the preserved Epping-Ongar Railway. These shots feature Class 31 No.31438 on a rake of blue and grey-liveried coaches. The eagle-eyed should also be able to spot large-logo liveried Class 47 No.47635 Jimmy Milne and Class 205 DEMU, No.205205 in NSE livery creeping in to the background of a couple of shots. Earlier on in the film there is the ubiquitous aerial view of the Thames in London and Charing Cross station is visible with trains.

The River Thames, and Charing Cross station is visible to the left of that big wheel thing.
This is Tilbury Town station on the LTS route and a Class 357 ‘Electrostar’ EMU is arriving, the only time so far that this class has appeared on film. Note that to the right of Mark Strong’s shoulder, the station sign has been amended to read ‘Grimsby Town’.

31438 pulls its train away from North Weald.
As the train pulls out (with a Mk.1 on the rear) Class 205 DEMU No.205205 is glimpsed in the bay platform on the left. Note also the blue enamel ‘GRIMSBY’ station sign on the right.
Class 47 No.47635 Jimmy Milne is visible on the left of this shot, (viewed through two windows, hence its appearance in reverse).
