Trivia

In the Scotland training scene, Mac, the instructor says "..and for those of you who don't know me, you're in for a big f***in' surprise." and "...now let's try for our first heart attack, shall we?" These lines are almost identical to those spoken by RSM Sandy Young (Jack Watson) in The Wild Geese (1978). See more »

Goofs

The Military Police of the British Army didn't receive the Royal Warrant until after the war (1946). Until then they were named the Corps of Military Police (CMP), not the Royal Military Police (RMP). See more »

6 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had decent hopes for this flick going into it as I am a fan of movies like 'Where Eagles Dare' and 'The Dirty Dozen', and the first half hour or so of this movie gave me hope of a similar ride. However, ten minutes or so after the bullets start flying this movie goes into the toilet. The ending was one of those 'well, we've run out of money, let's just rap this story up' scenarios. Multiple plot lines were never resolved and this movie just left me wanting to know why I had just wasted my time watching such a crappy movie. I am only thankful that I didn't try and convince my wife to watch this movie as that would have been an epic that I would have never lived down.
