In London for the Prime Minister’s funeral, a US secret service agent discovers a plot to assassinate all the attending world leaders
This typically over dramatic US action thriller has a shoot-out scene on the closed former Jubilee Line platforms at Charing Cross Underground station, with 1996-built tube stock present. The surface building seen is in fact that of Moorgate, with the signage amended convincingly to read Charing Cross. Earlier in the film there is an additional shot of another 1995/96 stock train leaving an unknown Underground station. There are plenty of aerial shots of London throughout the first half of the film and visible in these are Charing Cross and Waterloo stations as well as Grosvenor Bridge, with a formation of Class 375 ‘Electrostar’ EMUs crossing.
