Our Score
Lewis Collins, managing to look stern-faced throughout, lives up to his tough-guy image in this British action movie that was inspired by the 1980 storming of the Iranian Embassy in London by the SAS. Despite the presence of Hollywood veteran Richard Widmark and Judy Davis (as the head of a group of terrorists), it's not much more than a glamorised episode of TV series The Professionals, which at least had some wit and spark in the person of Gordon Jackson.

Summary

SAS captain Lewis Collins infiltrates a gang of terrorists who plan to take over the London residence of the American Secretary of State - but his close relationship with the group's leader threatens the operation. Action thriller, also starring Judy Davis, Edward Woodward, Maurice Roeves and Richard Widmark.
