This was a sort of good movie - ironically it would do better if we didn't think it had anything to do with the original "Navarone". What otherwise kills the flick is that there's no central villain - Richard Kiel plays a monstrous Chetnick who baits Carl Wethers and the rest of us, but that's about all. There's a high-ranking Nazi who puts in an early appearance and an almost as fast exit. The biggest disappointment is the plot - save the partisans. The partisan commander's antipathy to his Anglo-American allies stems from his suspicion that they consider his war theater a backwater, an idea the script does little to contradict. Still, the flick is definitely worth a look - I actually enjoyed it, especially how it tries to look and sound like a war movie made a decade earlier, rousing music and all.
If you don't mind the inaccuracies and the completely implausible story line then this is a pretty good action film, of the type I probably would have enjoyed when I was about 12. This was too bad, as I am a fan of many of the actors in the movie, including Harrison Ford and Edward Fox.
None of the principal actors associated with the original film, Gregory Peck (Major Mallory), David Niven (Corporal Miller) and Anthony Quinn, were capable of reprising their roles, some 17 years later. Robert Shaw, replaces Peck as "Mallory", and Edward Fox assumes the role of "Miller", the explosives expert. Their new mission is to locate a traitor named "Lescovar" (Franco Nero), who is operating in Yugoslavia as a member of the Partisans. The pair are attached to a special operations group code named "Force 10", commanded by Lt. Colonel Barnsby (Harrison Ford). The group has their own top secret mission, which begins in Italy by stealing a plane. Sgt. Weaver (Carl Weathers), unexpectedly joins the mission after forcing his way into the plane, and parachutes with Force 10 into Yugoslavia.
Upon landing, circumstances quickly reduce the group to just five men. Wandering the countryside, the group meet up with what they believe are Partisans. When they turn out to be Chetniks collaborating with the Germans, Mallory and the rest find themselves prisoners. Spinning a yarn about hijacked penicillin buys Mallory and Barnsby an opportunity for freedom, and with a little help, the two men are soon free, and able to make contact with the real Partisan group.
