i have to admit that i didn't expect much from "they who dare." the film doesn't seem to be a fondly-remembered classic of the war genre and surely enough, it isn't.
there maybe some good photography on location in greece but that can hardly compensate for poor dialogue, lack of excitement of any kind, shoddy direction, a slow pace and rather undistinguished acting.
this isn't exactly one of dirk bogarde best films. actually, i would go so far as to say that "they who dare" is a decidely average production with nothing to commend it whatever.
there are far better british war films from this period, such as "dunkirk," "ice cold in alex" and "the dam busters."
