B-grade Yugoslavian war action
19 April 2016 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

OPERATION CROSS EAGLES is your usual low-grade Yugoslavia WW2 movie, following a tried-and-tested formula: bring in a pair of big-name but past their prime American actors, include a ton of repetitive action to take viewers' minds off the simplicities of the plotting, and let rip.

This one was shot in Slovenia and involves a squad of soldiers being sent on a dangerous mission behind enemy lines. There's the usual twist in the storyline, but as with most things about this movie, it isn't very interesting. Western actor Rory Calhoun has a big role here, but the biggest name is an aged Richard Conte, who directs (for the only time in his career) as well as stars. To be fair, it's hardly a feather in the cap for either actor.
