Storyline

Major Joe Dawson parachutes into Nazi-held France where he is immediately picked up by the Marquis resistance movement. He discloses to the leader, Boule, that his mission is to kidnap the well-protected German General Stryker and take him back alive to London. The plan is to arouse the suspicions of the Gestapo as to Stryker's loyalty in order to get him out into the open. Then, as he is being carried back to Germany for trial, he will be taken from his German guards. The Marquis with whom Dawson will work is Yvonne who will pose as his wife. She is repulsed by his coldness and the nonchalance with which he kills in order to accomplish his ends, but she works with him for the cause. She later learns that Dawson and a woman companion (Ella More) had been in France before on the same mission, but they had been caught and tortured, with Dawson driven out of his mind before escaping back to England. There, he had been confined to a mental hospital, escaped, and was now back on his own to... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

What Do You Expect from a War Movie Starring Robert Goulet?
3 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Underground is a grade-C war movie starring Robert Goulet as an ace spy who hijacks a mission and parachutes into France during World War II in order to settle a vendetta. It recycles just about every cliché known in the war movie genre, and suffers from bad lighting to boot.

First of all, Robert Goulet is just not the war hero type. Had this been a film about a spy who parachutes into France and adopts a cover as a cabaret singer, it might have worked. It certainly would've been a better movie than what we get. The rest of the cast is downright laugh inducing, second rate actors playing stock roles.

To make things worst, the lighting is truly terrible. Much of the film takes place at night, and it is often impossible to see what is going on. I haven't seen lighting this bad since The Green Berets. Even Birdemic did it better! Worst of all, the story is one you've seen thousands of times before, with characters and situations done in better films. You'll be laughing when you hear Goulet's back story-it's that trite!
