Critic Reviews for The Way Ahead (The Immortal Battalion)
Direction by Carol Reed is competent, and undoubtedly accounts for the underlying genuineness of the picture as a semi-documentary.
Despite a framework which stresses regimental traditions and military valour, the film's celebration of the ordinary man as soldier leaves a residue of radicalism.
Carol Reed directed this 1944 war film from a script by Eric Ambler and Peter Ustinov.
Audience Reviews for The Way Ahead (The Immortal Battalion)
Excellent performance by David Niven. The movie kept my interest. I've seen it all before--the ragtag bunch of draftees becomes a top flight fighting unit. It's good, but I doubt I'll watch it again. This was made during WWII so that gives it a slightly different edge.
An interesting film about the war shot during the war but only for those really into the subject since it is pretty weak compared to some hidden little gems of WWII desert warfare movies.
