Trivia

The film, about James Bond creator Ian Fleming's "30 Commando Unit" during the Second World War, was partially set in Norway where it shot there at Ålgård, Rogaland. Spectre (2015) was under consideration to film in that country too but shooting there was canceled in favor of Austria. Previously, the James Bond film Die Another Day (2002) had utilized Norway as a filming location, with the locales of Spitsbergen, Svalbard and Jostedal Glacier National Park, Luster, Sogn og Fjordane in Norway, for ice cliffs, ice palace environs and the car chase on ice sequence.

Entertaining, but rough around the edges
16 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a solid action flick for sure - nothing terribly new, but it does good work with the WW2 formula that other war flicks have used before.

There is no one flaw I can point to in this film as my reason for giving it a 7, but quite honestly, the thought that stayed in my mind as I watched it was that this film while good, had the potential to be great.

It falls short. The acting and character development is intriguing, but lacks the depth of characters in films like Inglorious Basterds.

It has a fun story, but a little more detail could have may the commando training subplot as well as the rest of the movie so much more.

The beginning is great, but leaves many scenes to the imagination of the viewer. You almost have to wonder if the film was gutted in order to shorten the running time to its fairly short hour and a half.

Like I said, it's good - but it could have been great.
