This true story follows the exploits of a top secret British military mission to destroy Nazi radio ships in a neutral harbor during WWII. The daring plan is led by British Intelligence officers Col. Lewis Pugh (Gregory Peck) and Capt. Gavin Stewart (Roger Moore). Since the ships are in neutral territory the British Military command, while encouraging the scheme, must deny any knowledge of it if it fails. Pugh and Stewart enlist the aid of retired officer Col. Bill Grice (David Niven) and some of his former soldiers. On the pretext of being on a fishing expedition, these seemingly drunken old men in civilian clothing must board and destroy 3 Nazi ships, whose radio transmissions have resulted in Nazi submarines sinking allied ships. While Stewart arranges a diversion on shore, Pugh and Grice carry out the dangerous raid on and destruction of the Nazi ships.

The gritty main plot, the black/white shots and satirical humour from all sides of the socialist realism nicely sum up the style which is just downright appropriate and cult-like.

I don't think I would call this a horror film at all, there is some blood and gore, but it's mostly a thriller with a really good score that takes a tad too long to get to the point. The final scenes of teh film were great, but there was some scenes in the middle that could easily have been cut and would have definitely strengthened the film more with their absence than their inclusion. The cast was a mixed bag, a few stood out for me though. The Lead played by George Newbern was great as were the two actors playing his children, the always amazing Kyle Gallner ("Jennifer's Body" and the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" remake) was a delight to watch and brought an amazing level of emotion to the film. Shanna Collins (who I have only seen in the horrid "The Haunting of Molly Hartley") was great in her scenes as well. Kathleen York, who played Jenny the leads wife was uneven at times, but manages to pull it together for her scenes toward teh end of the film. Katherine Cunningham-Eves was also decent, though she too came and went throughout the film. Overall I wouldn't see this if you are actually a fan of the Raw Feed gang because it isn't as simplistic and gory as most of the stuff they throw out. If you have a few hours to kill and want to think, but not too hard, about some ideas involving fear and death then check it out, but be warned that it drags at times and may not appeal to you when the final scene hits the tv screen.

Sandra D (de) wrote: "They Came. They Saw. They Wanna Go Back."This movie is hilarious. I haven't seen the original movie but I really liked this one, mostly because of Jean Reno and Christina Applegate. The storyline is great and many scenes are absolutely hilarious. I can imagine why people dislike this movie because it is not supposed to be taken quite seriously, it is indeed very silly. I will always love movies about time travel.

I didn't expect to sit through all of it as it was, but I got increasingly more and more bored as it went along. There wasn't enough story outside of the betting, though the two lead characters were strong and had potential to be interesting. More Alexandria would have maybe improved the story. I think some of it is down to me. I really aren't into sports and sports movies. At all.
