"Reilly: Ace of Spies" is the most realistic treatment of internationalespionage that I've ever seen - probably, of course, because Reilly wasa real person. His exploits are doubtless exaggerated here, but perhapsnot too exaggerated. The scripts certainly seem realistic, and that'sthe important thin...
Back in 1983, my wife and myself watched a 12 part series on TV. Mywife thought it was very good. I thought it was excellent. The leadingroll was played by an actor named Sam Neil who played the master spySidney Reilly as if he were made for the part.For two decades, I spoke about this series and sp...
Sex, murder, intrigue, moves and countermoves, all the stuff that reallyjuicy mini-series are made of...and its a true story. The originalintroduction that ran with the PBS showing stated that Ian Fleming usedSidney Reilly as the basis of James Bond. Sidney, as played by the greatSam Neill certain...
Fabulous work by Neill, as usual, in this early work. This series, for themost part historically accurate, covers the almost unbelievableespionage/covert ops careers in history by a man virtually unknown untilthis series ran. Fascinating perspectives on the political machinationsgoing on in Europe &...
Some 20 years ago I saw Sidney Reilly at work for the first time. Lastweek my husband and I watched "ace of spies" on DVD and We where amazedthat the series looks not at all old fashion TV.It was still very much21st century work and the acting of Sam Neill is still accurate to thisday.I fell in love...
A great true story (no Oliver Stone hacking) about a sinister Britishsuperspy and how he almost singlehandedly brought down the Bolshevikrevolution.Ian Fleming was once asked who James Bond was based on, he replied "butReilly of course"....
I would think that anyone who watches this series and then compares itto the last 10 years or so of James Bond films will easily be able todiscern serious story telling from CGI cluttered inanity.I was mesmerized by this series and IMMEDIATELY became a fan of SamNeil.The sets, the wardrobe, all firs...
I was very impressed by this. It is just about the only miniseries(meaning one story in several episodes) from TeeVee that I canrecommend. (The other is the amazing "Singing Detective.")Perhaps the primary element that attracts is how complex it was. I wasoften confused, and loved the fact that real...
Great series, undeniably. One bit of trivia/credits: while Harry Rabinowitz may have written a"Shostakovich-influenced" score, the theme music itself is actually arecycled composition by the great Dmitri Shostakovich himself, namelythe "Romance" from the movie score to "The Gadfly", Opus 97. http://...
My wife and I lived in London for a couple of years during the 90's.We watched the British TV programs on Saturday night and enjoyed theBritish humor.I think it was in 1983 when we watched a series, Reilly Ace of Spies.Sam Neil was the major actor.Neil's performance was riveting. We could hardly wai...
When the series first came out it captivated me and to this day I have notbeen able to find the complete series on either VHS or DVD. It is one ofthose TV mini-series that the Brits do so well and Sam Neill is justsuperbin the lead role. The VHS listed is the first episode and in case you arewonderi...
This for us was one of those things you pick up because your satelliteis out and instantly become transported the the early 20th century andthe machinations and one-upmanship of international intrigue. We didnothing else until we had seen all the episodes we own. Unfortunately,we can only find four ...
Like a great mystery book, this series is hard to put down (or stopwatching). Some mystery series lull me to sleep. This one didn't. It isdefinitely slow-paced as they did series this way in the 80's and PBSallowed for longer series then and allowed the writers to take theirtime. Longer series (like...
Reilly Ace of Spies was a brilliant series, with a young and, then,relatively unknown New Zealander Sam Niell playing the role of Reillybrilliantly. The most fascinating part is that the "real" Reilly workedundercover for years. Set in the context of the "Cold War" and withReilly a factory owner in ...
This is one of the best pictures of what lies "beneath the surface" onthe pages of history you'll ever see about the 1917 Russian Revolution.Amazing stuff. It's one of my all time favorite PBS productionsThis is also the first time I'd seen Sam Neil and he does a highlycredible job playing the maste...
Sam Neill and the entire cast are excellent, the story is totallyabsorbing, the cinematography is absolutely beautiful and the dialog isintelligent. The twelve episodes fly by too fast with a beautifullyhaunting Shostakovich influenced score.The only problem is that the story is very loosely based o...
As historical as you can get with a minimum of overdramatization.Superb acting--you forget it's a movie. Fascinating, better than anyfiction in this genre. Stays very close to the book. Not a boring moment. In my estimation,Sam Neill at his best.Supporting cast are great also. The series has the mar...
Sam Neill's grand entrance into the American consciousness via thisexcitingand extremely intriguing true story of a (British? Polish? Russian? Russianemigre?) spy who uncovers Stalin and Nicholas Djerjinsky's secretcounterespionage group designed to nullify any effect of the Russiananti-Bolshevik em...
The tone for each episode is the moving music at the black and whitephotos at the start. Obviously the stories are not totally accurate butSidney Reilly must have been a very interesting person. Regardless ofhis motives, the series shows him to both clever, brave andresourceful. Sam Neil is excellen...
I saw scenes recreated in this series that I'd never expected to see,e.g. the executions in the Lubyanka of the cell of left-women one ofwhom shot Lenin. Was this a recreation of a sole written source, or arecreation from supplementary historical sources? Is itlate-Soviet-period 1983-revisionism or ...
I remember back when this "Mystery" series aired with Vincent Price as thehost. My roommates were averse to watching anything on non-commercialtelevision (PBS), until I asked them to watch "Reilly". After that, everyThursday evening at 9:00 PM, we'd tune in Reilly's latest caper. Thanks tothe Britis...
Sam Neil is "Reilly, Ace of Spies" in this excellent miniseries from1983. And let me add, he's much better looking than the real master spySidney Reilly.This miniseries covers Reilly'a antics in the early part of thecentury, and the stuff that made him the model for Ian Fleming's JamesBond. Over tim...
I fortuitously got turned onto Reilly courtesy of a television reviewin the Toronto Star, to which I am eternally grateful. I might havemissed it otherwise. Reilly was a terrific series. Heavily romanticizedand perhaps not quite factually accurate to be sure, but an absolute,rewarding joy nonetheles...
When I originally viewed this series, I was enthralled. This promptedme to go out and research what is known about Sydney Reilly. The bookthis series is based on, Reilly:Ace of Spies by Robin Bruce Lockhart,is based primarily on what Reilly told his father. And what Reilly toldhim and many others we...
Reilly: The Ace of Spies is an interesting tale of motive and morale. Asusual, Sam Neill does an excellent job with his unique characterportrayal....
