A relentless Soviet spy (Pierce Brosnan) smuggles parts for a nuclear bomb into England. His goal: detonate a device next to an American airbase, blame the Yanks and watch U.S.-British relations go up in a mushroom cloud. Only one man guesses what's going on: a canny British agent (Michael Caine) on the outs with his bosses. Two stars identified with screen spies who made the Cold War cool - Caine as the hero of the Harry Palmer series and Brosnan as 007 in four James Bond films - team for a riveting, unsettling East-West thriller based on a besteller by Frederick Forsyth (The Day of the Jackal, The Odessa File). In an era when nuclear terrorism is an all-too-real threat, The Fourth Protocol makes for compulsive viewing.
