Audience Reviews for The Sea Wolves

A thrilling, enjoyable and very entertaining World War 2 adventure, that's laced with great acting, good craftsmanship, great humor and exciting action. A sharply funny and action-packed movie. A great film to watch no matter what decade its from. Gregory Peck, David Niven and Roger Moore are excellent, they have crisp and wonderful chemistry. A terrifically entertaining and wonderful movie that is just pure escapist fun from start to finish. A men on a mission classic with a bunch of old timers who clearly still got it.

Exciting adventure story..amazingly based on real events. The sound editing could have been better, though.

Was going through a box of vs. tapes I had and came across this one, so I ordered the DVD from Netflix and this film brought back many memories. Its one of the better WWII films on the market. A bunch of retired soldiers make a raid in a neutral harbor to sink 3 Nazi ships, comical and action packed. 5 Stars 9-6-12
