The Final Option (1982) Poster

SAS- The Final Option

Released in Britain as Who Dares Wins, it gave a fascinating look at Britain’s Special Air Service serving in a counter terrorism role. Much of the plot and acting is… well, it was the early 1980s.

But the action scenes were, and still are, impressive.

Loosely based on the SAS takedown of the Iranian Embassy in London in 1979, I have to admit, this was one of my favorite films in high school.
