I really enjoyed this film, it follows the same kind of formula to be followed in The Dirty Dozen twelve years later. The formula is that you get soldiers, train them and then set them on a near impossible mission. Like The Dirty Dozen this film has some humour, which works well. The fact that it is a true story makes it even more interesting, I found it very easy to watch and the colour and sound quality are excellent. It works as a fine tribute to the very brave men of the Marine Commandoes who took part in Operation Frankton. If you are either a fan of war movies or interested in the actual raid then this is highly recommended.
