When I rented The Final Option back on VHS in the early to mid 1980's. I had not idea how good the movie would be and it was a great movie.The action was cool and was seemed accurate also like Richard Widmark. The main SAS character (Lewis Collins) I had never seen before and when I saw this movie thought his acting was GREAT! When I rented it I lived in Norfolk, Virginia and now I cannot find the movie to own on DVD or VHS. Can anyone tell me where I can get The Final Option on DVD-Region 1 (USA) or even VHS (NTSC format)? I have been craving for this movie for years and I cannot find it anywhere! Please contact me at email@example.com if you can help, Thanks !!!!!!
