Rating: 4/4 -- Beautifully paced, this 156-minute classic allows enough time for character development, plot complications (including the requisite double-cross by a member of the outfit) and several exciting set-pieces. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- David Niven is the subservient but stylish chemist Miller, rounding out a film that ranks among the best war movies. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- The movie holds up pretty well as a rousing action picture, and also throws in a couple of comments about the contradictions of war. Full Review

Product Description:

One of the great war movies of all time, with an all star cast, and a gripping plot--based on the Alistair MacLean novel. A commando team is sent to a Greek Island to destroy the giant guns of World War II Germany which are controlling a strategic channel in the Aegean Sea. This was a groundbreaker in the Special Effects department, too. Academy Award Nominations: 7, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best (Adapted) Screenplay. Academy Awards: Best Special Effects.

Plot Synopsis:

A specialized commando team is organized in 1943, during WWII, to sabotage and put out of commission the Axis firepower on the mountainous Greek island of Navarone in the Aegean Sea.
