Storyline

Algiers, 1942. The special counter-intelligence agent, Alan Cooper, is assigned to protect the British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, who is aboard the Casablanca Express, on his way to a top-secret meeting with Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Joseph Stalin. However, the Nazis already know everything about their plan, and a tactical unit of German paratroopers take the commando guards by surprise, intent on kidnapping Churchill. Now, it's up to Cooper and his fellow agents, Captain Franchetti and Lt. Lorna Fisher, to lead a desperate counter-attack before all is lost. But, can they make it in time? Written by Nick Riganas

Couldn't have been much worse.
29 July 1999 | by AylmerSee all my reviews

Ultra lame World War II flick. Absolutely flat dialog scenes, boring action sequences, and some of the worst music ever devised by man! I'm usually a big fan of Sergio Martino's work, but this film was far too weak to stand up. The two stars, Francesco Quinn and Jason Connery, are the sons of Anthony Quinn and Sean Connery. Star-power (or son-of-star-power) is what the film relied upon too heavily. The result is a 90 minute waste of time, with some of the most startling historical errors ever committed to film. Far too boring to be funny.
