Customer Review

on 14 July 2006
This is based on C.S 'Hornblower' Forrester's novel and gives people who were in the battle fictional names. The film starts with Captain Shepard (Kenneth More) taking command of the Ops room in the Admiralty. Shepard lost his destroyer at Narvik at the hands of Admiral Karl Lutjens.
The film wastes no time in getting to the chase as it were and is full of excellent action scenes and performances. Kenneth More steals the film in my humble opinion supported ably by Dana Wynter and Geoffrey Keen (the Minister from James Bond). More is effectively 'reunited' with Laurence Naismith who played Captain Smith in "A Night to Remember" alongside More.
The film uses exact replicas of the Bismarck, Hood, Prince of Wales for the battle sequences and is used excellently when the Swordfish attack.

An added bonus is that Ed Murrow himself appears in brief scenes 'replaying' his "This is London" broadcasts.
