PG Certificate


Our Score
In this derivative Second World War adventure, a host of familiar faces that you can't quite put a name to keep their upper lips stiff as our boys try to destroy a French chateau containing a Nazi super-weapon, the V3. David McCallum makes light of his character's awful name (Quint Munroe), playing an RAF pilot who must comfort his missing friend's wife and lead the mission. Only some nice flying sequences and the mellifluous support of Charles Gray pass muster. The similarly themed 633 Squadron, released four years earlier, is a much more rousing experience thanks to Ron Goodwin's stirringly hummable score.


An RAF pilot leads a special mission behind enemy lines to destroy a secret German weapon. In the months preceding the operation, the airman tries to comfort the grieving wife of a friend who went missing in action, but finds himself developing romantic feelings for her. Second World War drama, David McCallum and Suzanne Neve.
