Movie Info

Cliff Robertson's a combat-weary pilot whose R.A.F. squadron is ordered to destroy a Nazi rocket fuel plant tucked deep into a Norwegian fjord. The bomb run is a logistical nightmare because the planes must run a gantlet of anti-aircraft batteries before reaching their target. Based on a true story, the movie co-stars George Chakiris and Harry Andrews.more

This ham-handed WWII picture about an international squadron of Allied pilots is hardly the best way to remember the late, great Cliff Robertson.

Dated flying effects hurt this above average WWII actioner.

Audience Reviews for 633 Squadron


A rousing theme tune, but unfortunately things go downhill from there. Unconvincing aerial sequences (complimented by dodgy model effects), pointless love interest and an uninteresting side plot involving a distinctly italian-american looking (and sounding) "norwegian". Other films have done this type of thing much, much better.

I have always loved the old war movies and this cheezy outpouring doesnt dissapoint....Chocks away, tally bally Ho!

Pretty interesting and cool little flick. If you like dogfights and lots of WW2 footage this is the movie for you. The plot is slightly thin but that's not the point of the movie. This movie is all about planes, which are pretty awesome.

Also, of note to any Star Wars fans: the final briefing scene and final battle scene were used shot by shot in A New Hope (admittedly by Lucas) so for that I'd suggest people should watch this. It's a very solid movie and can't recommend enough.
