This movie reminded me of the war movies from the 50s and 60s. Very little character development and a very straight forward story. Easy to watch but not worth remembering. Let it sit on the shelf and move on to something else.

This tale of the comandos' WWII mission in Norway is worth telling, unfortunately, this movie fails to do it justice. And the group of excellent actors still doesn't make it work. The plot is conveyed in a disjointed manner and the characters are poorly developed, some, not at all. It's too bad. In the right hands, it might have been good.

Very nice movie. Not an action-packed thriller, but a bit slower and more thoughtful. These soldiers were heroes: they had no technology to rely upon, only their guts—and, boy, did they have cojones! (Anyone who watches D-Day footage will be shocked at the rate they were killed as they jumped off the transport and into the water.) Yes, they were simply men, but that is exactly what makes them so extraordinary! They deserve to be remembered with lots of respect and admiration. Our young should have to watch movies like this, to understand how much this country—and France, for this matter—owe to them. Sean Bean, one of my favorite actors, will always carry the Sharp stigma, but he still has charm. Unknown actors and actresses, but worth their pay!

(This review and rating were both censored, and I never got the email notice. Bibliocommons at its best!)

This movie was a disappointment. It almost felt like the movie ran out of money, so the 'escape' to Sweden happens in a blink of an eye with no details on what happens to Mack and their leader (played by Bean). Hey look, there is Sweden... credits roll. Not worth the free rental. Too bad.
