Unusual film from Hollywood, its near to the truth.
18 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This one of those rare films, that managed to get made without Hollywoods gross miss-interpretation. The truth has not been distorted for sensationalism, the facts are correct. It is a pity that stories like these are not remade today but with extra information about the story and maintaining the integrity, the truth makes a better story than those made up in Hollywood. Details about always having clean suits and the hair always in place, well what can you expect this was the style of movie making in those days. But the story line has not been altered to distort the truth, obviously certain details are missing, as these were still listed under the Official Secrets Act of the UK. Most the of the soldiers walking around seem to be SS in their black uniforms, but it is certainly better in its facts than later movies made about the war, ie. Enigma and U-571 which are an insult to those who took part in the original actions, and lousy education to those who are not aware of the original stories.
