Review by John (posted on 8-Feb-2005)

After reading some pretty foul reviews on Who Dares Wins, I thought it time to give another view. I saw this in 1982 when first released. I was a 22 year old who had been pretty bored with the other films going around. Yes, I was a fan of 'Lewis Collins' of course, and also 'Edward Woodward', so yes I maybe a little biased. BUT, I can honestly say that for me, with the great soundtrack (which I have never found) and some great action sequences, made this film, for me, a favourite. OK, it got a little slow in some areas but when you put them in context with the film, made a great build up to a very exiting last 15 minutes. for god's sake people, stop putting down a good movie. come on Collins, get back to England and do more like this. We need it.
