Trivia

In this film, Dellow is played by Martin Shaw. In The Final Option (1982) (known in the UK as "Who Dares Wins"), which features a similar but fictitious siege, SAS Captain Peter Skellen is played by Lewis Collins. From 1977 to 1983 they played anti-terrorist agents on the UK TV show The Professionals (1977). See more »

Goofs

Some of the weapons carried by the SAS team have parts that were developed much later than the 1980 period, e.g. lowers developed for US navy in '86 and F style stocks that were part of the 2000 update. See more »

Siege
2 April 2018 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

This is a tough watch especially if you keep in mind, that this really happened. Why do people do stuff and what do they expect will happen? And while this is just a movie one can only imagine/fill in the blanks of the rest of the time ... spent in that building. The acting is really good and you can see the struggle of all the characters. Inner and outer struggle.

Mark Strong is a terrific actor and we knew that, but even with limited time he conveys so much emotion, you really feel what he's going through. But there are also the people inside, which cannot all be singled out or get a backstory, especially because it's more about the "bad guys" in this. But even in the group of bad guys, there are factions and frictions ... and stuff happens. A template of how to deal with a situation like this? Someone thinks/thought so
