Goofs

Regularly throughout the film, German troops are armed with British weapons. For example just after the commandos leave the submarine, a sentry is seen standing a post at an airfield with a British No.4 MK1 .303 rifle slung on his shoulder. While soldiers did use captured enemy weapons, it is highly unlikely in this situation. See more »

Well at least Bogarde is great
15 August 2009 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Not sure what I expected from this one. Dirk Bogarde is my favorite actor and I have had pleasant encounters with Milestone as well. Here the latter screws up on multiple occasions.

First off the cinematography is way too light and some of the shots are rather clumsy. The script could be faltered as well. And some of the acting, especially from the one playing a character who keeps singing this awful and quite annoying tune.

Mind you it's not bad. Bogarde's performance makes it worth while. But really if it hadn't been for him this would have been below mediocrity. It got a few strong moments and whenever Bogarde is on screen you nearly forget everything else that has been going on.

I will not recommend this but overall it was OK. I think the casting apartment did some horrible choices though.
