Goofs

The ribbons on the British traitor Major's uniform are US Marine Corps awards - Joint Service Commendation Medal; Good Conduct Medal; & Marine Corps Expeditionary Medal. At the end of the movie (while on the train), Capt. Jackson is wearing the same ribbons on his uniform. Those ribbons change when he approaches Mrs. McBain. See more »

Why didn't they use a Military Adviser?
7 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

I watched ten minutes of this movie then had to leave it.

The opening battle was implausible. As another reviewer noted there were groups standing and firing at each other - like a civil war movie more than a WWII one. Senior officer commanding a Platoon level action while wearing his gorget patches in the field. Refers to his subordinate leaders as Company Captains. British troops had Company Commanders who were Majors. US command companies with Captains.

Then onto a briefing about the coming mission. The SGT comes to attention like a kid would if playing at soldiers. Servicemen will understand what I mean. Briefing was light on detail and delivered by a senior officer who sounded like a voice over man. Then the British soldiers all salute like recruits with no head dress on.

I figured it wasn't going up hill from here so I decided to spend my time on something that didn't make me want to shout at the TV.

Might sound picky but these were glaring issue that set the scene for for a poor movie.

I love low budget films and will happily make allowances for realism flaws. But the flaws in this weren't due to cost except maybe the fee for an adviser.
