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 »

Not the greatest, yet far from the worst WWII film
26 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not understanding all the negativity in the user reviews about this film. Sure, Sean Bean is not the world's greatest actor, but he did a fine job in this role. True, the movie shared some themes found in other WWII movies, but how can that possibly be avoided in this day and age?

The movie does lack moments of depth--for example the training camp in Scotland shows lots of yelling and little else. However, contrary to previous opinions, the mission is quite clearly explained prior to the team undertaking it--hence the need for the non-commando "specialist" who is brought along to ensure success.

This movie was entertaining, moves at a brisk pace (although too brisk in some places), and has fun moments combined with tragic and sad. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I found it enjoyable, and while not Academy Award material, I would recommend that anyone who likes Action/War movies takes a look.
