Storyline

Mallory and Miller are back. It seems that there was traitor with them at Navarone, whom they thought was executed. But it seems that not only was he not executed, and he was not a traitor but a German spy. Intelligence believes he made it to Yugoslavia and is now with the Partisans. So, Mallory and Miller being the only ones who can positively identify him are sent along with a unit called Force 10, which is led by Colonel Barnsby, who objects to their presence. It seems that Force 10 has a mission of their own which Mallory and Miller know nothing about. When their plane is shot and most of the team is killed, they mistakenly believe that some of the locals they meet are Partisans but in reality are German Allies, so they are taken prisoner, and have to convince the German commander that they are not spies or else they will be killed.

A James Bond reunion
26 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

Force 10 felt like a James Bond reunion. The director is Guy Hamilton (Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever, Live and Let Die, The Man With the Golden Gun). Robert Shaw (From Russia With Love) is the star. Barbara Bach (The Spy Who Loved Me) is a love interest. Even Richard Kiel (Jaws in The Spy Who Loved Me) is here as a heavy. Unfortunately this film is not as enjoyable as a typical Bond film not to mention equaling or surpassing the Gregory Peck classic, The Guns of Navarone, to which it is a followup. The film is not an entire waste however. A young Harrison Ford is very convincing action star even here and is almost enough to save this disappointing effort. The only really gripping part of this film was the racial tension between Keil's character and Carl Weather's (Predator) character. Average film, 6/10. This review was based on the widescreen version on the DVD which had a few extra minutes.
