Categories: commandos moviescovert operations moviesinfantry moviesraid movies

Running time: 135 minutes

Language: English

When German high rank officers see that the war is going wrong, they prepare a plan that could give them some time to turn the tide of the conflict. They plan to send a small group of experienced commandos to British coast, where, according to German intelligence, Winston Churchill will be spending his vacation.

Based on Jack Higgins novel fictious special operation of German commandos. This movies is somewhat disappointing - on one hand there is an interesting plot and very good cast, but all of this produces little excitement. There is a lot of preparations, a lot of discussions and only the final part of the movie is actually interesting. It isn’t bad movie, but if it wouldn’t go on for over 2 hours it would be better.
