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.

Critic Reviews for 6 Days

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (5)

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.

August 17, 2017 | Full Review…

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.

Top Critic

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.

August 17, 2017 | Full Review…

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.

More boring than any report from the BBC. [Full Review in Spanish]
