The Story: Some of the best Allied soldiers, each of whom has a special talent, are called together for a seemingly impossible mission: To infiltrate a heavily guarded island held by the Germans and destroy the dual anti-ship guns that can sink any battleship which gets near the island. They have only a few days to pull it off, or else thousands of Allied soldiers will be trapped on a nearby island.
It also focuses just as much on character development as it does on explosions and fights. The characters are a memorable bunch, and while they are rough around the edges, they try to do what’s right even if they occasionally fail. The special effects are sometimes dated, but that’s only a minor flaw in this classic action film.
