The name of the secret mission was "Operation Grendel" and bears resemblance to the real-life "Bruneval Raid" which was officially also known as "Operation Biting". See more »

Goofs

When identity discs (dog tags) are taken off the bodies of deceased soldiers, both discs are taken. In fact, only the red disc was supposed to be taken, with the green disc staying on the body to identify it. See more »

Great in it's class
24 June 2011 | by alexSee all my reviews

I don't understand all those negative comments. It's a simple ww2 movie about a commando team in the making. The actors are acting good, but it never intended to be a deep Shakespeare like prizewinning movie. As war movies go, it's quite entertaining. I wasn't bored. It isn't the best movie i've seen, but it's really worthwhile.

It immediately made me think about all the dirty dozen movies, but those are more "the A-team like", this movie is more serious. I've seen almost all ww2 movies (i collect them) and this isn't one to miss.

Do not take this it to seriously, and you'll love it, if you do, you might get bored, it isn't a typical Hollywood blockbuster....
