    Well paced movie with a solid plot , stellar cast, strong and smart dialogue, amazing stunt work and coordination. Modern movies could learn a lot from this one.

    A classic thrill ride with many, many predicaments, & twists & turns. Beautiful scenery. But absurdly unrealistic and contrived. Plot required planning for almost miraculous escapes from difficulties, which would not hav been undertaken if foreseen. Very popular ALISTAIR MACLEA novel. I might enjoy reading it, if i wasted time on fiction. I'm sure it would have attempted to explain things better I may have seen parts of it, but surprised never saw whole thing before 2.6.21 on the movie channel.

    A solid Clint Eastwood film that isn't as great as Kelly's Heroes, but still overall pretty solid.

    Badly dated and quite nonsensical. Middle-aged Burton as 'action man' opposite a wooden and very young Eastwood. Both playings supposedly german speaking allied rescue heroes having daring-do escapes on parachutes motorcycles, trucks, cable cars and at the end of ropes. Real bunkum.

    Clever and exciting action-adventure movie about an elite special forces team infiltrating a Nazi German mountaintop fortress, while trying to root out a traitor within their own ranks. Exemplifies the old action movie cliche of the 'gun with the endless bullets' better than most.

    This movie is one of the most understated action movies of the last century. Most of the film isn't action, but a long cat-and-mouse buildup to lay the groundwork for the action-packed finale. It's a multi-layered plot and plays its cards close to the chest, cueing the audience in that there's more going on but not explaining what exactly until the end. It's an incredibly solid WWII stealth action film and is a must-watch for fans of the genre. Closest comparison: It's like The Guns of Navarone by way of The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. Setting: WWII Action Plot: Infiltration Tone: Drama / Action

    Excellent movie. My only critique is it's a little too long for the story. They should save 2 1/2 hour movies for epics, not action movies.
