Disappointing

I thought this was a disappointing film.

Not sure why Harrison Ford made it. Maybe he thought he couldn't go wrong after Star Wars but this is not a good film.

Usually I like Robert Shaw as an actor but I thought he was poor in this and came across as a bit of an idiot rather than a professional sent to carry out a dangerous mission.

The story about the penicillin was just ridiculous as was the story about hiding it earlier on. In real life the Nazis would have just laughed at the stupidity of it and probably shot Ford and the others.

The acting is patchy and the action isn't very exciting.

Overall a disappointing film with poor performances.

It is worth a good look

FORCE 10 FROM NAVARONE...I don't know what to say apart from the fact that I enjoyed it as a kid, and I'm looking forward, in years to come, to sitting down with my son (now 2) and watching it with him. With the exception of the original Navarone, and WHERE EAGLES DARE, FORCE 10 is far-and-away the greatest book-to-movie translation in it's genre. The critics got it wrong, they always do!(How many people saw Titanic because they said it was so great? They didn't mention the steam coming from a decorative smoke stack, or the digital watches, did they?!)

FORCE 10 generally has a good feel about it, it isn't too serious. Shaw, as he'd proved with JAWS and THE STING, was the contender for one of the greatest British actors ever, only Burton or Olivier have been close to that title. With the recent success of Shaw's JAWS and, obviously, Ford's STAR WARS, it was prime casting...no question.

Don't take it to seriously, and with the fast-paced story, Top-Notch cast and brilliant Ron Goodwin score...you should really enjoy it, if you like the genre! Roll on six or seven years time, my son is in for a treat!!!

Harrison Ford

During World War II, several oddly assorted military experts are teamed in a mission to raid and destroy a bridge vital to enemy strategy.

An odd occurrence in making the film: cinematographer Christopher Challis recalled that the film was originally considered to be filmed in Pakistan until someone realized that Pakistanis did not resemble Yugoslavians or Germans and the expense to make them appear as such on film would be financially prohibitive. How do you make someone look German? Anyway, this is a good war story. Not a great war story, but a good one. And it really is sold by the strong casting. Harrison Ford and Robert Shaw, obviously, but Carl Weathers is incredible. He may be best known for "Rocky", but he always commands attention when on screen.
