Twilight Time

In a war film, what’s the difference between nasty exploitation and just plain honest reportage? AndrĂ© De Toth made tough-minded action films with the best of them — this nail-biting commando mission with Michael Caine and Nigel Davenport is simply superb, one of those great action pictures that’s not widely screened. To its credit it’s not ‘feel good’ enough to be suitable for Memorial Day TV marathons. With Nigel Green and Harry Andrews as a dastardly pair of corrupt commanders. On Blu-ray from Twilight Time.
