The Final Option is an all out action movie about a terrorist plot to take over the American embassy in London. Frankie Leith (Judy Davis) heads up a ruthless international organization of terrorists planning an attack on a group of American dignitaries, even resorting to taking hostages in the American embassy in London, England. But SAS officer Peter Skellen (Lewis Collins) infiltrates their ranks in order to thwart their every efforts, under the guise of retiring from the SAS and joining the terrorists themselves. Skellen turns on the charm and romances Leith, relying on his ever quick wit to get on continually compromising situations. But when the radical outfit demands a nuclear bomb be deployed on an important submarine base, Skellen may not be able to wiggle out of this bind. Ian Sharp directs this thriller, full of classic action sequences, that is loosely based on the siege of the Iranian embassy in 1980.
