On Christmas Eve, the prime ministers daughter (Christina Bellavia) is kidnapped, along with some of her friends. They are taken to an underground parking/office complex which is made secured. A team of SAS go into the facility to confront the bad guys, who are every bit as proficient as them. Tom Benedict Knight leads the SAS group. However the reason to watch the film is the dark comedy of sociopath Simon Phillips who holds people hostage, gives them hope, then a bullet.

There are grindhouse moments in the film with few slow scenes. The downfall of the film is the reason for the whole operation and the generic class warfare speeches spewed by Phillips toward the end.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex or nudity. 3 1/2 stars on the strength of Phillips' performance. Clearly not for everyone type of film.

The SAS are supposed to be highly trained elite force. However, you wouldn't have thought so watching this film. Whilst there's plenty of action, it's mainly at the expense of the SAS getting shot and killed by the bad guys. It's a fast moving film, highly predictable, but not the best of story lines. Glad I watched it on Amazon Prime and didn't have to pay!

Absolute rubbish!!! I've seen better quality story lines and
cinematography shot on a ten year old's ipod!! The story and characters
are totally unbelievable and how any producer could feel satisfied that
he invested wisely in this abomination is beyond me. Perhaps the writer
should have done some research on the characters and organisations that
he was trying to portray. There are countless books and even video
about the Special Air Service that he could have referred to, and the
fact that he didn't just goes to show what a complete idiot he is.
Soldiers serving in the elite SAS and any of our special forces for
that matter do not go running in like headless chickens without
confirmed orders (Iranian Embassy Siege 1980, the Police had to
formally hand over to the military, only after days of failed
negotiations) These men do not do "emotional" if they did perhaps they
wouldn't be members of the most revered and feared regiment throughout
the world. In summary, I agree totally with the reviewer above who said
you need a lobotomy to watch this, which is an operation that I am not
intending to have, so I've switched off the film and am throwing it in
the bin as soon as I've finished typing this. Spend your time and money
elsewhere!

Did the actors club together and write some good reviews or something?

This is genuinely one of the worst films I have ever seen. Bad acting, major plot holes, no attention to detail or procedure.

It is a genuinely embarrassing Brit movie.

'The plans were lost in a fire at the town hall last week' Good grief.

'The Prime Ministers daughter's been kidnapped by terrorists?' Pained and confused look.

Oh please....

Anyway, do yourself a favour and watch Who Dares Wins Instead, much better.

I'm afraid I've turned it off after seeing the SAS being portrayed in such an appalling light, being bunched up around a liberated hostage and drawing fire is so far off the mark that, if this was William Tell, he would have just neutered his son...

Bad Guy... Reminds me of a grown up school bully trying to be a Simon Pegg character.

Christmas dinner... The sprouts were raw which should give the viewer an indication of just how good the rest of the scene was and damn it, I best go and watch the rest of the movie on Prime, just in case I'm being over critical but what music should I play to drown out the awful dialogue?!

Excruciatingly poor. Why do they bother making these low budget straight to video films. They're not entertaining anyone (apart from the cast and crew posting 5 star reviews here)... and they're not fooling anyone either (apart the brainless twerks who shove the vid in the shopping basket without thinking, after all, they're getting the DSS to foot the bill)... these aren't film makers, they're p*ss-takers, and they do more damage to the reputation of the British film industry than they'd care to admit, churning out these hollow, fake, useless and boring 'films'. Someone stop them.

Hopefully the real SAS are better at their jobs. Worst film ever.
