Review

Our Score
A totally unnecessary and remarkably belated follow-up to producer Carl Foreman's massive 1961 hit, The Guns of Navarone. The cast here is no match for Gregory Peck, David Niven and Anthony Quinn in the original; this time round, a tired Robert Shaw (in his penultimate picture), a pre-superstardom Harrison Ford and a mannered Edward Fox are faced not only with the enemy, but also with a cliché-ridden script. Director Guy Hamilton's uninspired movie begins with the climax of the earlier film, then spends an inordinate amount of time before reaching its own explosive finale. Fans of the James Bond series (and The Spy Who Loved Me, in particular) may recognise Barbara Bach and Richard Kiel in supporting roles.

Summary

Ten commandos risk their lives in Yugoslavia to destroy a bridge vital to the Nazis' success in entering the Balkans. However, tensions rise when it becomes clear there is a traitor in the ranks who is determined to sabotage the mission. Second World War adventure, a belated sequel to 1961 movie The Guns of Navarone, starring Harrison Ford, Robert Shaw, Edward Fox and Barbara Bach.
