Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spyfinds George Smiley (Gary Oldman), a recently retired MI6 agent, doing his best to adjust to a life outside the secret service. However, when a disgraced agent reappears with information concerning a mole at the heart of the service, Smiley is drawn back into the murky field of espionage. Tasked with investigating which of his trusted former colleagues has chosen to betray him and their country, Smiley narrows his search to four suspects - all experienced, skilled and successful agents - but past histories, rivalries and friendships make it far from easy to pinpoint the man who is eating away at the heart of the British establishment.
An acting masterclass from the crème de la crème of British film (Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Mark Strong, Benedict Cumberbatch) and inspired direction from Let The Right One In’s Tomas Alfredson make this gripping and tense adaptation of John le Carré’s classic spy novel essential viewing.

I bought this on steelbook from zavvi and watched it for the first time. It's become one of my favourite movies since! Gary old man is excellent and it's got a great cast and stands head and shoulders above many British movies to date! Would recommend it for this price if you haven't already seen it!
A great chilly spy thriller with a terrific restrained performance from Gary Oldman.
Very good film and a very good steelbook to go with it. Zavvi were great with shipping as usual, thank you.
I thoroughly enjoyed the movie "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy". Gary Olman did an excellent acting job. I would highly recommend this movie to all adults.
Considering I believe these reviews should be reviewing the actual product (the steelbook), rather than the film itself, that's what I'm going to do. The steelbook artwork is one of my favourites. The numbers/coding over Gary Oldman was always an awesome design, but when put onto a steelbook, the numbers seem to glow making it a truly magnificent piece of artwork, aesthetically. The double play feature is also a nice bonus.
This is a great steelbook for a great movie. I've never seen it before, so it was a bit of a gamble buying it. Worth it. The movie is slow paced, a real spy movie, without big action scenes, just great spy work. I recommend it.
This one is a pretty standard steelbook. This doeasn't mean that it's not a great one to look at. The overall quality is excellent and the movie is a classic, which helps.
Beautiful edition of this excellent movie. Plenty of extras will sastisfy all spectators.
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy: Limited Steelbook Edition - Double Play is a nice steelbook with fast delivery. It's a good movie.
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy: Limited Steelbook Edition is a great movie and this is a great Blu-ray.
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spyis another proof of Gary Oldman´s greatness, and Benedict Cumberbatch displays abilities above the entertaining but, in the second series, a bit pot-smoking Sherlock tv-series. The pace might be too slow for some, but that is the trick of it all...
This is one truly remarkable spy thriller story. Two hours disappeared in an instant, as I sat glued to this cinematic wonder. Gary Oldman excels and fits perfectly in this picture. Watch it, own it!
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy: Limited Steelbook Edition - Double Play is an excellent movie with Gary Oldman. It's not to be missed!
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy is a great movie, with great actors, great director and a great HD image. I have nothing more to say, just buy it!
Very good. If you have seen the Alec Guinness TV series this has a similar atmosphere albeit condensed into just under two hours. If you are looking for a film full of action, this is not the one. It is measured, wordy - but if you like this type of film, compelling.
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy: Limited Steelbook Edition - Double Play is a really good film and the steelbook looks great.
A fantastic movie adaptation of Le Carre's novel. Great cast and a thoroughly enjoyable thriller experience. Be warned though, the pace of the movie is slower than the usual action fests, so if you have a short attention span then this is not for you.
I don't feel there is much need to delve into the film itself here aside from saying this is possibly the most intelligent and gripping spy thriller to be made in many years but it's not faultless and fans of the old series will find many holes but then that was made over many episodes where the film has just two hours. The film remains brilliant throughout and is one that keeps you guessing throughout. The steelbook bluray is of very high quality in both terms of packaging and the quality of the disc, picture quality is excellent and when required the sound keeps the tension nicely but this is a film that won't be giving your speakers a workout as it uses sound for atmospherics rather than blowing your socks off. The packaging is really nice and contains artwork on the inside of the casing along with that on the outside and the set contains both bluray and dvd versions of the film but sadly there is no digital copy in sight which is the only negative in what is an essential purchase. Highly recommended.
For anyone not familiar with Le Carre's story this is a very good adaptation. Enjoyable for the performances and the production design is top notch. If you've seen the BBC TV version with Alec Guinness from 1979 however you will find little here to further the experience. The film is quite condensed and perhaps the style of the story telling as it is in the book and TV version suffers for this. However, if you haven't seen it this is well worth giving your time to. Le Carre has in the past converted one of his books into a film as the equivalent to turning a cow into an oxo cube and you can see where he's coming from with that statement. The package was very good with great A/V on both the BD and the DVD and a nice selection of extras. Bottom line is, if you liked this in the cinema then buy this set. If you think you might like it, bearing in mind it isn't Jason Bourne, it's slow-burn story telling of the high order, then buy this set. If you do and you enjoy it, try the TV version after, not before, and it's sequel, Smiley's People. Either way it's a welcome return to proper spy stories told the way they should be.
