When a terrorist escapes custody during a routine handover, MI5 must track him down before an imminent terrorist attack on London
Spooks: The Greater Good (known as MI-5 in some countries) is an espionage thriller film continuing from the 2002–2011 British television spy series Spooks. It has opening scenes filmed in London’s Docklands with aerial shots of Poplar that include the Docklands Light railway station and depot. There is also a truly excellent aerial shot of St Pancras station, though no trains are seen here. However, we do see a train in a later aerial view of Brixton with a Class 465 EMU in the station, and at the very end of the film, Blackfriars station can be seen in a view across the Thames. Although it does not ‘drop’ into the confines of this database there is a very lengthy scene filmed at Heathrow Terminal 5 that include some rare shots of the Terminal 5 Transit, the automated people mover that conveys air passengers between the main airport terminal and its satellite buildings.
