Sean Bean goes commando in Age of Heroes.

The epic WWII action-thriller film Age of Heroes was inspired by the true story of “James Bond” writer Ian Fleming’s creation of the Britain’s elite military team ’30 Commando Assault Unit.’

An inspiration to Britain’s modern day Special Air Service (Sas), 30 Commando was a new breed of special operations taskforce created by British Naval intelligence officer Fleming to carry out some of the most dangerous missions of the war.

Starring Sean Bean (TV’s Game of Thrones) and Danny Dyer (Dead Cert), the film follows the circumstances behind 30 Commando’s inception and the unit’s first highly classified smash-and-grab mission into occupied Norway to capture vital radar technology that will change the course of the war.

Thn meets Danny Dyer and talks new movie Age of Heroes

22 May 2011 12:12 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Thn has discovered that there is no better way to revive a flagging pub conversation than to mention Danny Dyer. Within mere seconds of uttering the double D moniker, all those present are foaming at the mouth – eagerly awaiting their moment to give a witty and spurious critique of his back catalogue – usually accompanied by a cockney impression that has something to do with ‘geezers’ and ‘stabbin’.

Well this week Thn met up with the man himself – dispelling many of our misconceptions. Friday saw the release of his new movie Age Of Heroes and Thn caught up with him to have a chat.

Age Of Heroes is a WWII action/thriller inspired by the real-life events of Ian Fleming’s 30 Commando Unit. In the film Sean Bean and Danny Dyer play soldiers on an elite mission, venturing into Nazi occupied Norway to capture vital technology that has the potential to »

This week's new films

20 May 2011 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (12A)

(Rob Marshall, 2011, Us) Johnny Depp, Penélope Cruz, Ian McShane, Geoffrey Rush, Sam Claflin. 137 mins

Ahoy! Aha! Ahem. The excitement of another rip-roaring high seas adventure dissipates almost before they set sail in this lightweight epic of action set-pieces and people trying to get stuff they want. Depp is business as usual and the presentation is classy, but the new blood brings little to this non-party, which feels less like a story than a succession of twists and swoops along well-established tracks – like a theme-park ride, in fact. Oh, hang on …

Win Win (15)

(Tom McCarthy, 2011, Us) Paul Giamatti, Amy Ryan, Bobby Cannavale. 106 mins

Giamatti's hard-up lawyer inherits a whole heap of surrogate family issues, and a teen high-school wrestling ace, in a wry drama that doesn't really stray out of its suburban comfort zone.

Julia's Eyes (15)

(Guillem Morales, 2010, Spa) Belén Rueda, Lluís Homar, »

Due to the secretive nature of the unit's work, it is a story not many people know about - and yet they risked their lives to protect their country.

Sean Bean (Lord Of The Rings, GoldenEye) and Danny Dyer (The Business, The Football Factory) star in the film version, which takes the heroes from the edge of defeat on the beaches of Dunkirk to the mountains of Norway on a search-and-destroy mission that, if successful, would change the course of the war. »
