Movie Info

Erik Toresen (Paul Muni) is a mild-mannered widower who lives in a tranquil village on the coast of Norway. When Nazis occupy the area, however, the peaceful existence of Toresen and his neighbors is upended. Unwilling to tolerate German brutality, Toresen assembles a resistance movement and later discovers a secret Nazi military base. He then travels to England to inform Allied forces about the German location, and accompanies a group of commandos in an assault on the Nazis.

Critic Reviews for Commandos Strike at Dawn

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1) | Rotten (2)

  • A Norway raid is carried out with letter-perfect realism. Yet for all its realism the raid is strangely unexciting.

  • At the end of it all we find that military considerations are abandoned, lives sacrificed and the whole operation imperilled because the hero's daughter must at all costs be rescued. The film is quite content to allow this piece of romantic nonsense.
