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.

Critic Reviews for 6 Days
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.
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.
A stiffly executed re-creation of the events surrounding the 1980 hostage-taking attack on London's Iranian Embassy that packs all the high-stakes intrigue of a filed police report.
The core ingredients are all there for an absorbing rehashing of events, but as unveiled, it comes off all too often like a routine siege picture with a testosterone insecurity.
