It's suspected that a peace/anti-nuke organization in UK has some extremists willing to use terrorism. The action will probably be against an embassy in London. The SAS/Special Air Service try to get the organization infiltrated.
Daring 1980s alternative comedy sketch show that helped launch the careers of a number of British comedians. Often parodies the channel it aired on. Recurring characters include Terry and Wang-Wang - a pair of swearing Pandas.

The phrase "He Who Dares, Wins" is frequently said by the Derek "Del Boy" Trotter character (David Jason) in the British Sitcom series Only Fools and Horses (1981) which was first broadcast in 1981 just before this movie was made and released. See more »

This was one of the first movies I was allowed to go and see with my twin sister and friends back in the 80's. We were all big 'Professionals' fans.
We were not disappointed, there were really good action scenes and the plot very much mirrored the politics of the time. Lewis Collins plays a convincing, arrogant, SAS captain, who is sent undercover to infiltrate a terrorist organisation. His plan does not work out. He was supposed to identify the terrorist target, but is always kept in the dark. This all leads to a dramatic climax as he plays the hero at the end of the movie.
Unfortunately with today's hi-tech movies, this has dated somewhat but it does give a great snapshot of the 80's.
