Did You Know?


In the Scotland training scene, Mac, the instructor says "..and for those of you who don't know me, you're in for a big f***in' surprise." and "...now let's try for our first heart attack, shall we?" These lines are almost identical to those spoken by RSM Sandy Young (Jack Watson) in The Wild Geese (1978). See more »


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 »

Not actively bad, but definitely unsatisfying
6 July 2013 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

I am always up for a good World War II "men on a mission" movie. Emphasis on "good". This British production is quite lacking in a number of areas that at the end make the movie overall unsatisfying. The first flaw is the budget. I realize that this didn't have a Hollywood budget, and I did see that the production squeezed every last penny they had, but much of the movie looks kind of skimpy. But the movie could still have worked had it not been for the next problem - much of the movie is not exciting. After the opening action sequence, it takes forever for the next true action scene to come along. And the footage between is not very interesting - it's lacking a sense of humor, colorful characters, and original situations. Things do pick up a little in the second half of the movie due to some nice scenery and some okay action, but this material is too little and too late. While the movie isn't actively bad, it's more often than not bland, and even Brits in the audience with an interest in World War II will likely grow weary with the movie some time before the end credits start rolling.
