REVIEW - 6 DAYS 30 April 1980London Do you remember? The hostage situation at the Iranian Embassy, this film follows from the start the true story of the situation, what the terrorists demands were and the unfolding events which meant the first time the SAS were deployed on home soil. Using original TV footage and the actual building this is an absolutely gripping true story. Definitely a must see. Rating 10 out of 10To see all of my reviews on IMDb please follow the link below. http://www.imdb.com/user/ur79431623/
Totally awesome! (by john_spartan-33261)
Thrilling, atmospheric, minimallistic and awesome. All along keeps in stress, until the end. Perfect movie! Even better than "13 hours". Very authentic in terms of equipment and atmosphere. All dialogues don't contain a single line that's just ballast. It makes you watch it like a documentary. And no political correctness! So rare these days, when director told the truth no matter what. Applause!
Ignore the critics. (by richardseabrook1990)
I had a great time watching this movie. Honestly don't know what all the hate is about. Critic score is massively too harsh and once again imo just critics trying to get some attention. Was a solid telling of events and I thought the direction and acting were also solid. Few niggles but nothing crazy. Highly recommend this. Watch it!
Remarkable (by grahamchalk2008)
I'll take off one point for Abbie Cornishe's bizarre portrayal of Kate Adie. This is how it's done. If you want to see a cartoon watch "London has Fallen." Reality is complicated and bad guys are three dimensional. Sometimes real-life operations don't involve constant gunplay. Well, not if you want the good guys to actually survive. Good movie for grown- ups.
Brilliantly good TV-era historical drama (by shoobe01-1)
Excellent movie. Perhaps the best historical re-enactment/dramatization, at least in the TV era, I have seen. Very well paced, adding tension by showing with the SAS practices, and the negotiations, how things can go badly to very effectively fill the space between the initial raid and the final hostage rescue situation. On second viewing, this is an extremely well made film, with much deliberate use of different camera angles and lenses for different scenes, solid color grading so we get solid blacks in the right places, and really outstanding sound design; e.g. the COBRA room has a subtle <more>
but disconcerting tone, they do an exceptional job with reporting sounding authentic, and bringing the two locations on the phone together without it being obvious. Very well filmed, surprisingly so I'd say as they recreated the famous shots of the coverage impossibly well, kept atmospheric shots of the negotiation, claustrophobic shots of the SAS preparing for assault, and managed to make the action entirely clear and obvious. Very well acted as well. Some may seem odd to us now, but it is spot on for 1980s London. The news crews especially may seem like caricatures, but ring very true. And I'll watch Mark Strong order a pizza for two hours. His pauses during the early negotiation scenes cannot be pulled off by most actors at all.Some reviews /seem/ to take offense at some political aspect or another but I thought it did a very good job of presenting all sides, and plenty of people on screen were disappointed it all ended in bloodshed, while others were pleased they got do their job and shoot the bad guys and so on for the UK politics, for ME politics etc . Seeing all points of view unusually well presented. Lastly and for those who care: mostly crazy accurate. People I know who do this work, and/or have talked to the actual, not poseur participants only point out very minor inconsistencies, and many of those may be deliberate. On further viewing, in a few years as I re-evaluate, I may bump it to 10. Really good, maybe great.
Why do I give it a 9 out of 10? There are several reasons: a It's quite realistic. b It's very close to what really happens as far as the public knows today c It's in general well made. Why not a 10 out of 10? We know that the SAS trains with live rounds, as it was shown in the movie. But their targets wouldn't stop the projectiles. During their practicing in the bus the bullets would hit the target, go through, hit something else and from there on they would be unpredictable. No one would sit behind those targets and just watch the training. Same applies for the <more>
"house" made of wooden frames and fabric. bullets go through, nobody in the hanger would be safe.
Not a Hollywood shoot em upper - that is a NICE change! (by kenfromcanada)
I never noticed as some here have said, that, this was a low budget movie.Not that it shows anywhere. The actors - Cornish, Bell and always delivering a GREAT performance - Mark Strong. I have never seen Strong give a bad performance on screen - most know him from the Kingsmen. Some may say the Iranian embassy situation marked the beginning of international based terrorism for England,although in the past the country had many domestic situations of a dire nature - the IRA and their campaign.. I watch closely for technical details got right - or more often - WRONG - this movie gets it right - <more>
at least for the layman like most of us are.I have a friend who was S.A.S - he pointed out more - humorously - but he gave this film a thumbs up. So, when a real life hero I am privileged to know, who has lived these types of things says the movie is good - WATCH IT!
Wow! These are some pretty harsh scores for this low budget thriller. The acting is top notch all around led by Mark Strong as the police negotiator although they made him out to be a bit of a twit more concerned for the safety of the terrorists than the hostages. Perhaps this was true but probably fiction just to create a little tension between the more passive police and the gung ho SAS team.About the only thing this film lacked was steady pacing which with a story like this would have been difficult as mostly they just sat around for six days before the excrement hit the fan. At least the <more>
movie didn't devolve into a soap opera by showing the "up close and personal" side to the soldiers, police, terrorists, or hostages.Well choreographed action and training scenes sort of make up for the down time in the story. If nothing else it serves as a good reminder of this bit of history that I recall.
Really worth your time, even if some things could have been done better (by shaunvanhaelewijn)
I was somehow shocked when I saw the ratings this movie got. Sure, this movie will not win big awards, or anything like that. But I actually truly enjoyed this picture, as an interesting movie about a historical fact that I didn't really know about due to my young age.The movie doesn't lose time on futile details. It's an honest depiction of what happened over those six days. It starts immediately with the hostage. The movie feels genuine, and not meant as a brutal action movie. Keeping details true to the facts is of course a good thing. But somewhere on the line, they forgot <more>
about character development. There were some key characters, but without being really key characters. You could feel they were somehow important to the story, but you never really got a back story on them. The best example is the woman of the BBC. I didn't grew up in the UK, so I never heard of her. After the movie ended, they explained who she was. I think they could have done a lot more with the characters. You just didn't feel an attachment to any of the characters. Same with the terrorists and the negotiator.To be fair, it's not easy to do all this in just 1 hour and half. I genuine feel this movie needed some more screen time. If you enjoy movies based on true stories or historical events, you won't be disappointed.
