I first saw this movie as an in-flight movie while flying from Copenhagen to Seattle in September 1979. A sequel to "The Guns of Navarone" (1961) that starred Gregory Peck who played Keith Mallory and David Niven as Dusty Miller, Mallory and Miller return to action with Robert Shaw as Mallory and Edward Fox as Miller who have been assigned to a new mission in Yugoslavia to kill a Nazi agent posing as a Yugoslav partisan. Here they tag on with Force 10 led by American Army Ranger Lt. Col. Mike Barnsby (Harrison Ford) whose mission was to blow up a bridge to prevent the Nazis from crossing into the region defended by the partisans. The sequel was planned for filming back in 1967 with Peck and Niven playing their respective roles. The novel by Alistair MacLean was released in 1968, becoming his 17th million-copy best seller, but due to creative and economic concerns, the movie version was stalled. By 1977, the plans for filming commenced. Because of their ages, Peck and Niven would not star in the sequel. The following year the movie was released with Shaw, Ford and Fox. Sadly, Shaw did not live to see the film's release when he died of a heart attack August 28, 1978 in Tourmakeady, Ireland at the age of 51. Former Oakland Raider Carl Weathers plays his role well as the fiery Sgt. Weaver who merely "invited" himself on the mission, not knowing what was going on at first. Franco Nero plays Capt. Nikolai Leskovar, the Nazi agent Mallory was assigned to kill. Alan Badel plays the partisan leader Maj. Petrovich who assigned his daughter Maritza (Barbara Bach, also known as Mrs. Ringo Starr) as a partisan agent to spy on the Nazis and their Chetnick allies at a camp where they were operating. Richard Kiel plays the Chetnick leader Capt.Read more ›

Miller and Mallory, the heroes of "The Guns of Navarone" are back, sort of. We knew them as Peck and Niven, but little else but those two characters connects this movie with the 60's classic. Here, Mallory (Robert Shaw) and Miller (Ed Fox)hitch a ride with an American special forces team into war-torn Yugoslavia on a mission to assassinate a turncoat partisan who is betraying Tito's forces to the Nazis. Force-10, led by Col. Applebee (Harrison Ford), has its own mission and its own ways of getting into the battle zone - neither of which they discuss with Malliry or Miller. On their way to Yugoslavia (actually, on their way to getting their ride to Yugoslavia) the crew picks up Weaver (Carl Weathers) a sergeant on his way to the stockade. Things don't go as planned - even for Force-10's exceptionally pessimistic planning. Mallory and Applebee soon find themselves forced to discuss each other's secret mission and find themselves dependent on each other to carry it out.
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.

Being a fan of the original Guns of Navarone, I watched this movie hoping it would at least come close to the quality of the first movie. I was disappointed. This movies seems to be like a lot of those made in the 70's, make it quick, don't worry about accuracy, throw in a little gratuitous nudity (I didn't mind that as much) and a lot of action will make up for the other shortcomings. They even threw in a black soldier in the spirit of appealing to a wider audience. I have to admit, I became turned off by the film immediately when, in the first scene, they used some footage from the original with newer footage added in. It really showed the difference between the two movies, with the newer footage looking cheap in comparison.
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.

Taken for what it is, "Force 10 From Navarone"(1978) is a decent wartime action adventure. It is based on Alistair MacLean's sequel to his highly successful novel, "The Guns of Navarone" which was released a major film in 1961. The movie version though is a "sequel" in name only, and is connected to the original film by just a few plot threads. Recurrent characters bear no resemblance to their previous incarnations. This is understandable, as this movie plays to almost a whole new audience.
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.
