6 DAYS (Theatrical Release Indonesia 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

6 Days—based on true events—features Actors Ben Turner, Jamie Bell, and Mark Strong to tell its 1980s hostage story. This should have been a straight forward, easy story to put on the screen because there is no lack of tension in the real-life version of events. It’s worth a watch, but at times the tension flags and there are bits of slowness that flicker in and out of many of the scenes.

Storyline

Salim (Ben Turner) takes hostages in London’s Iran Embassy and negotiates terms for release of 91 people held in an Iranian prison in exchange for his hostages’ lives.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It’s a good watch for its historical significance; but, a better choice is Ben Affleck’s Argo.
