If you're a war film fan, especially British war films, you're better off doing all those odd jobs you have been putting off rather than watch this film. It has all been said on these reviews, but to recap - shallow characters you don't get to know or want to know, poor plotline, dubious military advice and an ending that looks like they ran out of money and the meter cut out. Like reviewer Brumster, as an ex-military chap, I am still waiting patiently for the return of the Great British War film! We seem to have a long wait! Considering the real quality European war films of late, it is a shame this director didn't take a leaf out of their book, could have been a whole lot better. Really aimed at the teen market.
On an end note - to the military advisors, please see how a set of '37 webbing is worn and how WW2 Brits patrolled with weapons...and I did think Sean looked smart in his 1949 battledress blouse, the war finished in 1945, 'nuff said.
