Trivia

Ian Fleming used the name James Bond for the name of a secret operation to fool Nazi intelligence into thinking they should be looking for a single agent. It was abbreviated to OPJB. There is book of the same name that explains more. Fleming thought it was such a good name he used in a novel, the rest is history. See more »

Goofs

The character of Ian Fleming is shown wearing the ribbons of the 1914-18 War Medal and the Victory Medal, awarded for service between 1914 and 1918. In actuality, Ian Fleming was born in 1908 and never served in the First World War (he was ten years old when the war ended). See more »

Great in it's class
24 June 2011 | by clanpainlessSee all my reviews

I don't understand all those negative comments. It's a simple ww2 movie about a commando team in the making. The actors are acting good, but it never intended to be a deep Shakespeare like prizewinning movie. As war movies go, it's quite entertaining. I wasn't bored. It isn't the best movie i've seen, but it's really worthwhile.

It immediately made me think about all the dirty dozen movies, but those are more "the A-team like", this movie is more serious. I've seen almost all ww2 movies (i collect them) and this isn't one to miss.

Do not take this it to seriously, and you'll love it, if you do, you might get bored, it isn't a typical Hollywood blockbuster....
