Operation Certain Death by Damien Lewis
Operation Certain Death by Damien Lewis

I agree with most of what has been said by previous reviewers. Yes the depiction of some the dialogue is annoying, and yes Lewis does better when he sticks to writing about the operation itself, the build-up and the aftermath.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 22 Aug 2007
There's very little to say about this match that hasn't already been said. Quite simply, that explosive start leading to Edwards's try is rugby at its very best. A better try will never be scored, however long the game is played (though the French came very close at Twickers in 1991). Brilliant and breathtaking stuff, with plenty more to follow throughout the game from an amazing Barbarian team.
Sit back, pour a cold one, and enjoy.

Actually, it's a sea-lion. Seals have much smaller front flippers and no external ear flaps.
Good film for the kids though.
