There is absolutely nothing to recommend about "They Who Dare." I think the title "They Who Dare to Make this Film" would have been more appropriate.
The dialogue and the plot are so boring!! Tedium soon sets in as our heroes talk their way to victory, rather than actually fighting the enemy. Dirk Bogarde must have been looking forward to his earnings, that's all I can say. He clearly doesn't feel the need to act much here. Mind you, I daresay most other actors would feel the same way.
There is no attempt to infuse a spark of imagination into the dialogue. It is merely a case of going through the motions.
