Hey its THE FINAL OPTION!!!!! GREAT FILM! Needs a major US DVD release
I used to watch my MGM/UA VHS copy of this film (entitled THE FINAL OPTION) all the time in the 1980s now I have to watch the region 2 DVD as WHO DARES WINS; but who cares . . . its just as great although not enhanced for 16:9. What I love about action films up to 1990 or so is that the good guys are really the good guys and the bad guys are really the bad guys, there's no ambiguity here. The Final Option is a movie that works on many levels culminating with the hero being taken "hostage" by The People's Lobby taking the hero's wife hostage; you have two dramas occurring at once. Judy Davis is awesome as the lead terrorist--she's deep into her character; acts her heart out. And that guy playing the hero, Skellon is really tough and stoic and really James Bond all the way and really in shape too; his wife is really cute. And then we have Helga played by Countess Dracula and Carmilla herself INGRID PITT; a mean, very mean German who wants to literally "shoot the baby"!!!! There's a good catch about where the terrorists are actually getting their money from making us think about the power seekers and who the power seekers really are and how the power seekers are really pulling the strings. Roy Budd's music is truly great for a true action film with a deeper meaning . . . an awful lot of blood squibs in mouths, bleeding lips and so forth. See this movie!!!!
