Welcome to Moscow.

Please enjoy your stay.

- The boss is expecting you.

- Right this way.


'Kay, Gerry.

We have no visuals inside.

It's on you now.


Sala'am Aleikum.

Take a seat.

You've traveled a long way.

Please. I insist.

You'll have to forgive

the less-than-tasteful decor.

The fancy hotels are all booked

for the anti-terrorism summit.

Is that it?

All of it?

Gentlemen, please.


We're all friends here.


I understand

you are anxious, here,

in your enemy's territory.

But I assure you that is

precisely why you are safe.

No one would dream of looking for you

here, right under their noses. Hmm?

Of course mistrust is healthy

when conducting

these sorts of transactions,

but rest assured, gentlemen,

nobody wants to die today.

We are honest criminals.

Here it comes.

I'll show you mine,

if you show me yours.


You're happy?


I'll take your word for it.

- Don't forget this.

Without it, she's useless.

- What is this?

- We celebrate our new partnership.

There is no need for this.

I insist.



- What's going on?

- I don't know. Something's not right.

He should've confirmed by now.

We need to go in.

We're not supposed

to be engaging at all.

Track and confirm only.

- Our business is concluded.

- Of course.

What is it?

What the hell just happened?

I'm not sure.

Sleep well, chaps.

What is that?

A homing beacon's

been activated.

What? From where?

From in there.

Now, I know this must look bad.

There's actually

a very funny story.

You didn't let me

get to the funny part.

That was definitely gunfire.

- Agent Cooper, stand down!

- You want to stop me, shoot me.

- Goodbye.

- Wait.

My finger's on

the trigger button.

If you shoot me, this whole

place becomes a memory.

Now, lower your weapon

and walk away.

- No.

- What do you mean, "no"?

I mean, "no."

I will not lower weapon.

You do understand what will

happen if I push this button?


Okay, so just to be clear,

you're perfectly happy for me

to kill us, your friends, your family,

and millions of innocent people,

have I got that right?


Because button does

nothing without key.

That's a good point.

You hit good...

For a lady.



FBI! Drop your weapon!

Agent Cooper?

Agent Cooper, come in.


Who are you and what

are you doing here?

Simon Templar.

And, at the moment, hiding.

Well, Simon, you're interfering

with a government operation.

Special agent Cooper, FBI.

Since when does the FBI

have jurisdiction in Russia.

It's a joint task force.

- Who's coming?

- Coming?

You set off a homing device

on the nuke.

- Who are you trying to contact?

- Interpol.

- Bullshit.

- Look, agent Cooper,

we can sit here with you

continuing to not believe me

and be turned into Swiss cheese

or we can, I don't know,

do something to try and survive.

Wait, wait, wait!

What are you doing?

Making the sensible choice.

- Cover me.

- Wait. Stop.

Son of a b*tch!

I need some backup in here.

Only ten in clip, rookie.

You want to reload? I wait.

- You're welcome.

- You're under arrest.

- Are you serious?

- Always.

- And what's the charge?

- I don't know. I'll think of something.

Agent Cooper?

Agent Cooper, we're in.

Better late than never.

But don't worry.

Situation's under control.

We just need

to place him under arrest.


Son of a...

The Saint?

Patricia, perfect timing.

My specialty.

How's your Russian adventure?

Very Russian. Very adventurous.

And, uh...

Not quite over.

Escape route's on your phone.


Where am I going?

The airport. He'll meet you

in Bucharest tomorrow.

I've got you a charter flight.

Wheels up in an hour.

Ms. Holm, you are as efficient

as you are beautiful.

Ah, thank you

as always, darling.

And I must say, the beard does give

you a certain... Sophistication.

Oh? Can't have that.

I should shave it off

at the first opportunity.

Oh, I like you with

a little scruff.

I'll take that

into consideration.

- The united nations

- relief agency

has pledged aid to the region,

but the money's been held up over fears

that it simply won't reach those in need.


president Ezekiel Ibaka

is said to have secured nearly 2.5 billion

dollars in aid from private entities.

The newly elected president,

who promised to

stamp out corruption,

personally reached out

to groups around the world

in an effort to keep his

country from falling apart.

My father was a hero.

A warrior.

As inspiring as he was fearsome.

One of the greatest generals

Nigeria has ever known.

He loved his country...

At times, I felt, even more

than he loved me.

It would pain him greatly

to know what I have done.

He was a proud man.

He would never stoop

to begging, as I have.

That's not true. Your father

would be very proud of you.

The lengths to which you have gone

to help your people, Mr. president,

will go down in history.

And remember, it takes

courage to ask for help.

The generosity you have shown my

country has been overwhelming,

and it will certainly help

the healing process, but sadly,

it's still not enough.

Did you ever think that 2.5 billion

dollars would not be enough?

Well, that's why I'm here.

I pledge to you, and your

country, all of my talents.

We will make this work.

We have to.

Yes, we will.

- I don't think I have ever seen a ring like this before.

- Oh.

Well... family heirloom.

It's very dear to me, actually.

It serves as a reminder, of a time long

ago, when the world was very different.

Less complicated.

When good men banded together

to fight for what was right.

It motivates me to this day.

It brought me here, to you.

And I'm incredibly

grateful that it did.

All right.

You'll have access to

the bank accounts at midnight.

By 12:
01, I want them

cleaned out.

Yes, sir.


- What is it?

- Sir.

Should we be doing this?

I mean the 2.5 billion

isn't blood money.

It's going for aid

to people in need.

Now don't start growing a conscience,

Arnie. You haven't had the experience.

He asked you about

your ring, didn't he?

It practically sealed the deal.

How did you know he would?

It's a conversation starter.

- What did you tell him?

- The truth.

That it was a family heirloom.

I just didn't tell him

it wasn't my family.

I almost gave it to him.


Because he's pathetic, just

like the man I took it from.

You've kept it all these years,

it must mean something to you.


It's yours. That's how much

it means to me.

All right. Get on with it.

Time's a-wasting.

Yes, sir.

Simon Templar, you're

the most peculiar thief I know.

Coming from you,

I'll take that as a compliment.

You have the list?

Right here.

Eight hundred thousand

to doctors without borders.

- Seven hundred fifty thousand to migrant assistance.

- Um-hmm.

1.5 million to children's

hunger fund...


You want to give

all this money to children?

Th-they are so little.

Maybe they don't eat so much.
