Saw this movie last weekend. It was some British movie about some Peace Terrorists. Anyway, they had a number of scenes with MP5s. Thought that was pretty early to see the MP5 being used. Most of the movies in the early 80s focused on Uzis.

You "just" saw The Final Option.............My God, I am surrounded by heathens. Back in the 80's, that movie was the best thing going. It was based on the SAS storming of the Iranian embassy in London.

Heck, I just watched my BluRay of "Who Dares Wins" (name of the original movie in England) the other day. Great flick.

For more gun goodness, "Way of the Gun" is another must see, and one of the best gun handling movies ever done.

Ok. Now I know "the other guy" that remembers that movie !!! Fun fact = Margaret Thatcher brought that movie to the US on a visit to Reagan -- showed it in the White House.

Final Option is a great movie. You really only need to watch the last 30 minutes for the good stuff.
I love this movie. Many years ago I had a VHS copy of the movie, loaned it to a friend and never got it back. I wans't aware it was available on DVD or Blueray for the North American Region (DVD code thingy)? but have to agree, really the last 30 min's are the movie, to me at least...

resurrecting this post in light of the new movie 6 Days coming out.

I wish I still had a copy of this movie..... I had an old VHS copy years ago, I loaned it out and it never made it home....

Great movie. It's available for streaming free on Amazon to Prime members. I always thought that Lewis Collins would have made a great James Bond.
Good to know

I joined my SWAT Team in the Army in 1978. After the Army I was a Special Agent for U.S. Customs and was a member and Tactical Supervisor of the U.S. Customs Special Response Teams, their term for SWAT. In 1987, I attended a National Tactical Officers Association (NTOA) in Albuquerque, New Mexico. At the awards dinner at the end of the conference, they played the last 20 minutes of the Final Option. Even though the equipment and some tactics are now of course a bit dated, it is still considered Operator PORN!!!
