3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he action really moves, and the large-scale recreation of Dunkirk remains awesome."
In this World War II action-thriller, the British High Command finds itself in the thick of a huge dilemma when it is realized that they have long been infiltrated by spies form a German intelligence group. This all happens during the preliminary stages of the Battle of Britain.
Nine years before his WWII classic INGLORIOUS BASTARDS, Enzo Castellari virtually invented the 'Macaroni Combat' genre with this over-the-top saga of valor, vengeance and machine-gun mayhem. Hollywood legend Van Johnson (THE CAINE MUTINY) and Frederick Stafford (Hitchcock's TOPAZ) star as military officers pursuing a merciless team of Nazi saboteurs through war-ravaged London, featuring Castellari's jaw-dropping recreations of the evacuation of Dunkirk, the Battle Of Britain and more. Francisco Rabal (NIGHTMARE CITY), Ida Galli (THE PSYCHIC) and Luigi Pistilli (THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY) co-star in this explosive epic – also known as BATTLE SQUADRON – now restored on DVD for the first time ever in America!
