Good story.
11 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot itself is pretty solid. The Nazis want to kidnap Churchill. Allied intelligence would rather that not happen. Actually filmed at least partly in Morocco, with a fairly decent cast, I find Casablanca Express good enough to have watched three times so far. It's got enough action to be interesting and is fairly believable. Though the Nazi leader's remarkable skill with a pistol got to be a bit much. Francesco Quinn and Jason Connery did a good job playing intelligence operatives, as did easy on the eyes Jinny Steffan. Glen Ford and Donald Pleasence have bit parts with Pleasence's sole purpose apparently being to give permission for Cooper to kill Churchill if he's in danger of being captured. Such an order would have to come from the British. I could see no other reason for him being in this movie based on what he adds to the story. Glen Ford's role is a bit bigger.

Good action with a dash of intrigue and espionage makes it easier to ignore glaring errors like the helmet liners instead of steel pots and plot convenience stunts which wipe out all the soldiers trying to take back control of the train. Worth a watch. 6/10
