The situation was aggravated by the fact that the Embassy building was well fortified, and this prevented the soldiers quickly achieve your goals.

Success is tempting because they are tempting to tell with no exaggeration and scale. Victory wants to establish on a high pedestal and to surround with pride, but in the new film Toa Frazier does not similarly smell. No feat in the success of special forces, nor strategic considerations in the plans of the government — daily count of those the six days, when locked together with the hostages in the Iranian Embassy, the armed men demanded the impossible, while all around was decided that they will like.

At the time of the Thatcher government had a lot of dramatic moments, one of the draws on the basis of this tape, the opening is not the best of the landscape short of the battle which was fought, as a known so much of life of potential victims of seizure, how much for the prestige of power and implementation of political interests with a fair satisfaction of personal ambitions involved in operation performers different evaluate your big or little significant role.

For each of the written individual portraits with reflected nature, which becomes clear their interest work the expected profit from its result, which is in the power of political interests hidden from the public for a layer of secrecy and the Cabinet wall having their own idea of glory force, based on the powerlessness of others.

Unexpectedly — the Director puts on the table all at once involved in the game card, not hide power suit: negotiator, he does not know to what is it conversation; promising fighter with leadership manners; raced on the noise of the TV in the live otaplivaya head spreading around the world a picture of the event; a panel of chiefs with deliberative vote, a the will of those who remain behind;the scenes, defines the scope of decisions, including the British Prime Minister and the Arab rulers, anxious not the life of a small lyudischek, and the possible loss of his own face.

In pursuit of the objectivity of a movie is devoid of the main character, referring our attention to to what where many who likes to push an impressive speech covering its pride and the tragedy of several people is a means of self-realization cynics, for whom its always above all else, and the utility not considered neither for what price.

Pole of the world war is divided between characters Jamie bell (warrior-ambitious) and Mark strong (powerless peacemaker), and observation of them lead the journalist in the performance of Abbie Cornish — the rest of the cast is bound to the script tags with names functions — all aimed at the opening motive loud events opening a very ugly truth about that in the struggle of interests loses to the weakest, not calling is the truth that it is weak in the hands of politicians is a society who listens to loud journalistic hubbub. So that is awaiting action of the storm will be disappointed, because the film is not about him.

1980, London. A Sunny April day a group of armed up to the teeth terrorists breaks into the Embassy of Iran and takes the hostages on 26 man — staff of visitors. Specialist in the negotiations of the London police Max Vernon (mark strong) enters the dialogue the invaders. In parallel, the special forces soldiers SAS, in which Rusty Firmin (Jamie bell) ready to storm the building.

"6 days" — a typical representative of the movies "the negotiator VS the terrorists". In world cinema dramatic thrillers such direction have removed innumerable, and the tape of the Director Toa Fraser, alas, does not out to the background of his predecessors. The film recreates actual events that took place in the British capital with a 30 April 5 may 1980, when six activists "Democratic movement for the liberation Arabistan" seized the Iranian Embassy and demanded the release of their comrades held in Iranian jails. On the sixth day of opposition in the Embassy of spilled blood of the hostages, and special forces was forced to resolve the issue by force.

The film tries as much detail as possible and most likely play at the tragic confrontation. So that sometimes it feels like watching not a feature film, a documentary. Hardly every frame the beginning of the film is provided with a subtitle of time and places, names and the positions of actors Before the final credits footage of a newsreel, and says that began with the participants of the events in the future. Here only attempts encyclopedic accuracy to transfer on the screen the real story, the authors have completely forgotten about the emotions. All predictable, all the characters act strictly according to the pattern, why the action is lifeless, and dry, though the article of the encyclopedia Britannica. Mark strong with a traditionally, a scowl on her face soothes terrorists passages in the spirit of "I want you to help, but I need a little time." Special forces soldiers rush to the fight, training with layouts. Policy mumbles and crumple with feet foot, afraid to take on responsibility (the order of the assault in the end endorsed Margaret Thatcher, but in the frame it is not, but in the dialogs remember every five minutes). Jamie bell was included in castes to ensure that at least some of the special forces the viewer could remember to face. Well and yet, probably because they played Rusty Firmin wrote about the storming of the book and advised the filmmakers. Abbie Cornish in the role of the famous correspondent of the BBC Kate adey, obviously, added that there was at least one recognizable female character. Not add whists what is happening in the screen stubbornly pronounces closer to the finish line pathetic slogans like "Here's how Britain enters with terrorists!" and such Patriotic appeals, almost turn in Thriller cheap political grandstanding.

In fact, the "6 days" — it is well done, with recognizable actors in the frame, tense — but not more than reconstruction. At this is rather superficial: on the motives of terrorists, politically motivated cases, most mysterious Arabistan any details to the viewer not misleading. Worst of all that even the article in Russian Wikipedia about this story the result is more informative than the film itself.

Verdict: unpretentious reconstruction of the real story — and nothing more.
