6 Days (2017)



Critic Consensus: 6 Days effectively unravels its fact-based tale in the form of a taut -- albeit unambitious -- thriller that captures its era with a minimum of flair.

Movie Info

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 the likes of and which would change the world forever.

Bell is terrific - a combination of cocky swagger and perfect focus ...

There is a payoff here, even if the film does come across like an oddly nostalgic ode to the hard-line stance of Britain's 'Iron Lady', Margaret Thatcher.

For the most part, the results are pleasing and unexpectedly thoughtful.

6 Days works not only as a portal into what happened 37 years ago but as an understanding of the difficulties of handling hostage situations and why it's easy for things to go very wrong.

August 18, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

With a barrage of title-card identifications, "6 Days" can feel closer to a re-enactment than a thriller. To the extent that the movie has a political angle, it's perhaps gratuitously jingoistic.

Shot and styled in contemporary, ticking-clock action fashion, it compresses the complex Theatcher-era politics of its fractious standoff into a simplified West-versus-Middle-East conflict that registers as broadly topical.
