OK for war buffs
17 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

This is a rather small scale intimate WWII drama about a Commando unit going to Norway to steal some radar technology from a German base there. There are gunfights but not huge battle scenes. Those expecting some super clever espionage because of Ian Fleming will be disappointed. It is a cover mission but it's not a spy yarn.

A little too much time was spent on the commandos training which was tedious. More at the end about how the mission helped the war would have been better.

They show Nazi atrocities towards the Norwegians. Not everyone remembers that Norway suffered during WWII.

Not too many famous actors here except Sean Bean. Overall while not a must see it's an okay watch far war buffs.
