The finale is a touch overdramatic, but the film is nonetheless a first-class war epic.

Above all, the film lacks a firm controlling hand which would have ironed out passages of incoherent editing and made the climax really tell.

David Niven is the subservient but stylish chemist Miller, rounding out a film that ranks among the best war movies.
