Trivia

Director Adrian Vitoria has said of this film: "We had commandos, real British commandos, work on this project. They helped us and they played members of the SS. They are all ex-military men who have worked in Iraq and Afghanistan and have seen real action. Their contribution to this film was great and I think if anything it's given them an opportunity to see what we do in filmmaking and understand why it takes so long and why we can't include every single detail in the finished edit. They've educated us in the workings of warfare". See more »

Goofs

After Rains is pushed from the platoon and is confronted by RMP Company Sergeant Major the collar of his shirt is lifted a bit on the back. In the next scene the collar is tidy. See more »

OK for war buffs
17 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a rather small scale intimate WWII drama about a Commando unit going to Norway to steal some radar technology from a German base there. There are gunfights but not huge battle scenes. Those expecting some super clever espionage because of Ian Fleming will be disappointed. It is a cover mission but it's not a spy yarn.

A little too much time was spent on the commandos training which was tedious. More at the end about how the mission helped the war would have been better.

They show Nazi atrocities towards the Norwegians. Not everyone remembers that Norway suffered during WWII.

Not too many famous actors here except Sean Bean. Overall while not a must see it's an okay watch far war buffs.
