About Who Dares Wins

Who Dares Wins, released in 1982, is a British action thriller directed by Ian Sharp. The film is loosely based on the Iranian Embassy siege in London in 1980 and follows the story of a group of SAS soldiers who go undercover to infiltrate a terrorist organization planning a major attack.

The film features a strong cast, including Lewis Collins as the lead character, Peter Skellern as the villainous terrorist leader, and Judy Davis as the love interest. The action sequences are intense and well-executed, with a climactic finale that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats.

Who Dares Wins received mixed reviews upon its release, with some critics praising its realism and others criticizing its portrayal of the SAS. However, the film has since gained a cult following and is considered a classic of the genre.

The film's title is a reference to the motto of the SAS, "Who Dares Wins," which emphasizes the importance of taking risks and pushing oneself to the limit. This theme is reflected throughout the film, as the SAS soldiers must put their lives on the line to stop the terrorists and protect innocent lives.

Overall, Who Dares Wins is a thrilling and entertaining action film that showcases the bravery and skill of the SAS. Its legacy continues to live on, inspiring future generations of filmmakers and action enthusiasts alike.
