Did You Know?


Ian Fleming used the name James Bond for the name of a secret operation to fool Nazi intelligence into thinking they should be looking for a single agent. It was abbreviated to OPJB. There is book of the same name that explains more. Fleming thought it was such a good name he used in a novel, the rest is history. See more »


Even if the Commandos reached Sweden, they would have been interned and not returned to England. Sweden was neutral during WW2. See more »


Jones: If it looks like he's gonna be captured... or if he is... shoot him

User Reviews

Just one more stupid WWII mash-up
14 October 2011 | by leithpSee all my reviews

The only reason I'm giving it two stars is because the photography is not as bad as most modern mash-ups of the WWII genre. I get so tired of cheesy CGI, deliberately jerky camera scenes to highlight "action" and grainy post processing.

That said, this is really cruddy. Clichés cobbled from countless war classics are littered throughout this sorry mess.

The ignorance of wartime vernacular is abysmal. Special ops indeed! The plot holes beggar belief. Other reviews suggest the makers simply ran out of money and had to wrap it up somehow. I think the editor closed his or her eyes and chopped at random so they could all go down the pub and forget about this waste of everyone's time.

Sean, get a real job.
