Standard bit about our early special forces boys going against the evil Nazis plotting world demise. There's no surprises here, none at all, but everyone does gives their money's worth. Not bad, but not good either.

Your typical bank holiday afternoon flick which you watch cos you have nothing much else to do haha
Classic cast....Ford, Shaw, Nero, Kiel, Bach, Weathers etc.. in a daring WW2 mission much on the form of all other war flicks of the time, nothing wrong with that but its very predictable and full of wooden German soldier acting and plenty of now dated looking effects.

Very much the same type of star studded war flick like The Dirty Dozen and Where Eagles Dare, this was a big release and popular stuff yrs ago, based on a MacClean novel and a good boys own adventure its pretty much for the guys only haha

Carl Weathers early performance is a treat to behold haha ;) really.

Exciting action-adventure sequel to the classic Guns of Navarome with cool cast including my favourite number one idol, Harrison Ford.

The idea of a sequel to The Guns Of Navarone (that has nothing at all to do with it) sounds deeply unpromising, but this is a reasonably efficient WWII action film. Unspectacular but inoffensive.

Classic! - One of Harrison Ford's better movies outside Star Wars and Indy.

You really cannot go wrong with any movie that stars Robert Shaw, Harrison Ford, Barbara Bach and Edward Fox and this movie - although blasted by the critics upon its release really is a great war movie.
Many saw this as a dissapointment due to its attachment to the Guns of Navarone, but if it is taken up on its own merits then one can see that this is really nothing more than a fun movie for funs sake, no serious character studies here and the movie is all the better for it.
Bond fans will notice a number of actors in this movie that had already occupied roles in the Bond franchise or would go on to appesar in the series. In addition to Shaw (from "From Russia With Love") and Bach (who was fresh off playing the Russian spy Anya Amasova in "The Spy Who Loved Me") and Edward Fox (who would go on to play M in the rogue 007 movie "Never Say Never Again") there is also Bach's co-star from "The Spy Who Loved Me" Richard Kiel, who was riding high as somewhat of a cultural icon (hey, he appeared in a Shredded Wheat TV commercial) after playing Jaws.
I suppose the Bond connection is most apparent in the choice of director with "Goldfinger"'s director Guy Hamilton handling the honors.
The plot of the movie is also very different from the MacLean book, but some good Boy's Own adventure. Shaw plays Mallory (yes the same character that Gregory Peck played in the original) and he and Fox's character (who was played by David Niven in the original) are sent into Yugoslavia to identify and kill a traitor from the first movie. So, they hop a ride along with Force 10 (headed by Ford's character) who are headed to the same location with the mission of destroying a key, strategic bridge. Of coursre things do not go entirely to plan, and soon the action begins to come thick and fast.
A movie that would get a lot more respect if it didn't have the name "Navarone" attached to it.

Along with superman,grease . BEST FILM OF 1978 ! pure entertainment. I prefer the pan-scan version on the filp side DVD instead of the widescreen version. different music cues, voice dubbing or voice overs makes the pacing seem faster & the tone slightly different. strong performaces through out .

It could have been worse... but it would have been difficult. Actors and shooting are bordering very decent but the script has to be one of the least inspired and consequential one ever produced by the MGM. The worse is certainly that it bears no relationship with the original, just for that they should all be thrown to the Tchekniks!

A WW-II movie based on a novel of the same name by Alistair Maclean. The final action sequence is amazingly shot.

Cheesy, horrible special effects but Harrison Ford, Carl Weathers and the rest of the cast make it happen! A Classic.

The biggest waste of a great cast that I've ever seen. Guy Hamilton should have just stuck to the James Bond films.

Like Where Eagles Dare and the Guns of Navarrone, one of those great war movies that got overshadowed by bigger-named, bigger budgeted war genre flicks that were only so-so.

A nice adaptation of Allister McClean's follow-up novel to "The Guns of Navarone" This is a World War II spy vs. spy thriller. Where Eagles Dare is another McClean classic if you like this one.

Endnu en historie fra Alistair McLeans fabrik. Den når ikke op på siden af Ørneborgen og Navarones kanoner, men er da udmærket tømmermandsunderholdning.

A nice old war movie but the guns of navarone are better but this is great also. One of Harrison Ford's earlier movies.

After both Shaw and Ford coming off of their career highlights: Jaws, and Star Wars respectively, they unleash Force 10 from Navarone. This movie certainly isn't Shaw's next Jaws, or Ford's next Star Wars. But it has good quality and a unique plot with some witty scenarios, as well as great acting by both Shaw and Ford. I believe anybody can watch this although children may get bored, but any fans of Shaw or Ford or is a fan of movies involving Nazis - yes Nazis are in this, it kind of reminds me of Indiana Jones which stars Ford. People fans of films involving Nazis, war, and escaping nail-biting situations then this is the movie for you. I only give this a 3/5 because I am not a huge fan of these types of movies, and some of the acting beside Shaw and Ford is flat.

If you thought the original was too stuffy and slow and you wanted more action, well this might be what you're after. It has a more American cast and the action runs right through rather than mostly at the end like the first, although to call this a sequel is a little rich. The only real issue here is that there is a lot more action, but none of it is really anything special. So as a action war film with a simple plot this is well worth a look, but it's nothing more than that though.

Oh yeah. A great war movie for a kid.
