Storyline

On, June 5, 1944 in the early morning hours before the opening of the invasion on D-Day, a commando team, consisting of two New Zealander's, Captain Ben Grogan (Craig Hall) and Sergeant Joseph Tane (Karlos Drinkwater), land on the one of the Channel Islands, which are occupied by the German Army. Their mission is to sabotage installations there to create a distraction from the actual landings at Normandy. Using kayaks they land on the beach, navigate the land mines, then climb up to their target: a large artillery gun overlooking the English Channel. They are confused by the lack of German patrols on the island and puzzled by strange screams coming from the German's main bunker. They find the gun unguarded and wire it with explosives. While they are placing the charges a German soldier (Luke Hawker) comes running out of the entrance of the underground bunker. Although he seems less concerned about running into the enemy than getting away from something in the bunker, the New ... Written by Zaphod1957

Trivia

Joe Tane's character was originally going to be killed off in the opening five minutes when the production was going to be funded by Paul Campion, with only enough money to pay for three actors for the rest of the film. See more »

Goofs

Klaus Meyer (Matthew Sunderland) states he is a Colonel & the arriving Kreigsmarine sailor at the end calls out to him as Oberst, yet Meyer himself states (& his ID backs up) that he is in a special department of the Waffen-SS. The SS had their own distinct rank structure and as a result Mayer would have held the SS rank of SS-Standartenführer and not the Wehrmacht Heer (Army) rank of Oberst. See more »

Quotes

Captain Ben Grogan: Why don't you start?
Col Klaus Meyer: The demon must be present.
Captain Ben Grogan: Why would she come down here if this will harm her?
Col Klaus Meyer: She will come down here because she is hungry, and we are the freshest meat, the tastiest dish on the table.

There are better exercises that play with a similar idea as is this movie. Still this is not a bad movie at all. I got to watch this at a special preview at the Empire in Leicester Square. The director and some of the stars were there to watch the movie with a "kraut" (forgive the pun if you can).

Speaking of language problems, I talked to the director after the movie was over and asked him about the German language used in the movie (as can be seen on signs too). Overall a good job, that his researcher did, but there are a few minor mistakes that you might spot, if you know your German language. Overall a decent job on creating atmosphere too. A classic example of "B-movie", that will entertain people who like this stuff :o)
