Good Action Film with a Disappointing Conclusion
2 August 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In 1940, Major Jones (Sean Bean) is assigned to team up an 8-men commando to travel to Norway with the specialist Roger Rollright (John Dagleish) to meet the agent Beowulf and destroy the German Freyo Station and steal the German state-of-art technology of Radio Direction Finding (RDF) in the Operation Grendel.

Jones travels to the Dashwood Military Prison to bring the soldier Brightling (Stephen Walters) and he brings also the insubordinate Corporal Bob Rains (Danny Dyer); then the commando heads to Scotland to be trained.

When they fly to Norway, they are discovered and the plane crashes. Six members of the military unit and the specialist survive to the attack. When they accomplish their assignment, the naval pickup is not possible and the survivors without supply and little ammunition need to walk to Switzerland in a dangerous journey through a land occupied by German forces.

"Age of Heroes" is a non-original film of war but a good action film. The story is a combination of several well-known war movies ("The Wild Geese"; "Inglorious Bastards"; "The Dirty Dozen"; "The Guns of Navarone" and others), with a promising beginning and a disappointing conclusion.

Sean Bean is among my favorite actors and he has a great performance as usual. The acting indeed is pretty good but the screenplay needed to be improved. I still do not understand why Jones shoots his own man with a precise shot instead of the sadistic officer that is torturing him. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Comando de Elite" ("Elite Commando")
