In Greece during the war a small group of British commandoes and patriots land on an island with orders to attack two airfields from which the Luftwaffe is threatening allied forces in Egypt. The island is crawling with troops, and even moving by night the men soon run into trouble. Written by

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 »

It's "men on a mission" time as Special Commandos and some Greek partisans meet up on Rhodes to blow up two German airfields. And that's about it really, oh of course there's problems along the way such as questions of loyalty, hazards and set-backs such as minefields, and talking lots of talking - as the men stand or sit around pondering the war and or - their own inadequacies etc. When the big action finale comes it is kind of worth the wait, but the performances are only adequate throughout and the script is lazily written to the point of tedium setting in. 5/10
