Goofs

Gliders and single and twin-engined Allied aircraft participating in the Normandy invasion were marked with invasion or "Overlord" stripes, which were 3 white and 2 black alternating stripes on the wings and rear fuselage. The stripes on the fuselage were vertical with the center white stripe aligned with the white star on national insignia of the US aircraft. In this movie, the C-47 transports had their fuselage stripes with the rearward black stripe aligned with the star. See more »

PVC British Glazed Houses in 1940
10 April 2011 | by david-2835See all my reviews

I suspect due to a slight nostalgia mixed with patriotism - we find the vast glut of WW2 dramas and films receiving high ratings on places like IMDb. Some deserve it - like Band of Brothers, other don't.

This films diminished budget seems to have been an excuse to get bad actors who can't deliver lines (but have been told to leave 'poignant'.... gaps.... for dramatic effect). In addition the camera work is bizarre - weird close-ups at strange moments, bad editing and sound that needs normalising to avoid you constantly having to locate the volume control.

Apart from that there's the odd bit of decent dialogue - but not much. The enemy Germans are portrayed in the usual manner all lazy war films do... nothing to challenge the distortions of history here. Oh - and I'm sure I saw a British house looking very up-to-date with PVC window frames - maybe they were back-engineering from alien window tech in the 1940s??
