Uneven war romp with sequences of brilliant stuntwork
A 'Stalag 17' style P.O.W. action adventure feeble on jokes and suspense but it is packaged with pleasing elements. A joke cameo appearance from William Holden early on prepares us that it's going to be a good, old fashioned war romp. It's beautifully shot (blu-ray version is sumptuous) with a stellar cast and there is a fabulous motorcycle chase through the narrow streets of Rhodes. One of the main criticisms is that with no obvious lead role it has a disjointed feel. It's good Sunday afternoon fun after the roast beef and pudding.
