In April 1980, armed gunmen stormed the Iranian Embassy in Princes Gate, London and took all inside hostage. Over the next six days a tense standoff took place, all the while a group of highly trained soldiers from the SAS prepared for a raid the world had never seen.

    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 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.

    I am so used to many action movies going over the top with their 'lets kick some asses' type of gung-ho that this was a pleasant change. I remember the siege so well and the dramatic moment the SAS abseiled down from the roof and made entry. Seeing what went on behind the scene, of the frustration of both negotiating team and the soldiers being stood down then back to the front again after the retraining for different scenarios, I found fascinating. Not once did it lose my interest and I was glad the action was not over the top just for effect. The only aspect that let the film down, and big time, was the cringe-worthy portrayal of Kate Adie by an insipid actress, who I doubt had ever studied footage of the lady she was portraying. Miss Adie was not glamorous. She was precise and efficient and very believable. Everything this actress failed to convey. So only 7 stars because of this.

    Forgetting the weird Kate Aide thing, the rest of the film is quite watchable.

    The interleaving of original footage and simulated original footage works well.

    Not much is shown about the events leading up to the siege.

    What spoilt it for me was the inaccuracies with the shooting of the terrorists in the telex room (who had surrendered) and the struggle between PC Trevor Lock and Salim. Also the shooting on the stairs was not correct.

    Read here for the details: https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2002/jul/24/military.features11 For a docudrama it's a shame that the story was changed...

    Anyway, a lot better than the usual Hollywood tosh!

Arabistan is persian name of Saudi Arabia.
