Good story with excellent cast.
21 August 2001 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

Good story line. Well played. Excellent cast, with some lesser seen actors. Enjoyed this film throughout. Constantly moving story. Historically accurate as I understand. Good example of Sean Connery's earlier (non-Bond) work.
