The whole Waterloo sequence is magnificent, and I was tickled to see Mr. Robot pay homage to it in S4 E1.

I was really impressed with the way they retconned and complicated the end of Supremacy. Each of these three movies, I felt, did just a little bit more than it needed to to get beyond being a generic spy thriller.

I saw this after I'd been commuting through Waterloo for a bit and it was my first proper "Hey! I know that place!" in a big budget film. I also recognised the internet cafe he goes to afterwards.
This was a great finale to the series.
