Plot summary

What is All the Old Knives movie plot?

Here is a short review of "All the Old Knives" movie plot summary.

In December 2012, four members of terrorist group Da'irat al-Salihoon - a splinter group of al-Shabaab - hijack Turkish Airlines Flight 127; they take control of the plane after it has landed in Vienna and hold the passengers and crew members hostage, demanding the release of five fellow al-Da'irat members imprisoned in Austria and Germany. The CIA station in Vienna helps local officials attempt to rescue the hostages, but to no avail as the terrorists eventually kill all 120 aboard the plane. The CIA station takes blame for failing to save the hostages.
In February 2020, CIA agent Henry Pelham (Chris Pine), who was part of the Vienna station during the hijacking, is ordered by station chief Victor Wallinger to investigate whether there was a mole inside the CIA who sabotaged the rescue effort. Wallinger tells Pelham that the CIA recently captured Ilyas Shishani, the mastermind of the hijacking plot, who confessed that he had help from within the station but died from the CIA's enhanced interrogation techniques before he could reveal a name. The CIA is hesitant to believe Shishani but finds phone records from the day of the hijacking showing that a suspicious call was made from the office phone of Bill Compton (Jonathan Pryce), the station's second-in-command. Wallinger instructs Pelham to avoid the "embarrassment" of prosecuting a mole within the CIA and implies that he should assassinate the mole once he has obtained sufficient evidence.
Pelham agrees to speak with Compton in London and his ex-lover Celia (Thandiwe Newton) Favreau (nรฉe Harrison) in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, both of whom worked at the station during the hijacking but have since retired from the CIA. Pelham arranges to meet Favreau for a sumptuous dinner; he wears a listening device in an attempt to catch Favreau incriminating herself and hires an assassin who waits outside the restaurant and prepares to kill Favreau on Pelham's orders.
