Quite good but it starts off slowly...so try to stick with this one.
"Count Five and Die" is a very good wartime espionage film. However, I'll be honest, it starts off slowly and only gets interesting later in the movie. Fortunately, it ends quite well and is worth seeing.
In this film, an American (Jeffery Hunter) and Brit (Nigel Patrick) are in charge of a spy mission in which they are to deliberately misdirect the Germans by convincing them that the upcoming invasion of the continent will be in Holland. It all takes place in London and the key is their feeding the false information to Nazi agents in the city.
As I said before, this is a very slow film at the beginning. Fortunately, the picture improves and really becomes quite taut and intelligent towards the end. Not a great film like "The Man Who Never Was" (which covers much of the same material) but well worth your time...and patience.
