Who Dares Wins (1982)

When terrorists storm the American Embassy in London, it’s down to SAS captain Peter Skellen (Lewis Collins) and his elite team to save the lives of the hostages.

Collins, managing to look stern-faced throughout, lives up to his tough-guy image in this British action movie that was inspired by the 1980 storming of the Iranian Embassy in London by the SAS.

Despite the presence of Hollywood veteran Richard Widmark and Judy Davis (as the head of a group of terrorists), it’s not much more than a glamorised episode of TV series The Professionals, which at least had some wit and spark in the person of Gordon Jackson.
