Summary, etc.:
Thrilling, suspenseful dramatization of the real-life adventures of Agent ST-I, aka Sidney Reilly, the inspiration behind Ian Fleming's James Bond. Shot's 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 it's history and not fiction.
