5.0 out of 5 stars Where Eagles Dare...finally on DVD July 13 2003
By Mike
Format:DVD
A great movie that is easy to enjoy again and again. Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood make an unlikely, but excellent team set on literally storming the castle, behind enemy lines, during World War II. The film is an incredible example of how it is possible to make one of the best action movies of all time without any modern day special effects. The locations give the film a realistic backdrop to a story that is more like a classic serial. Where Eagles Dare is filled with explosions, twists, great escapes and characters you love to hate (the Nazi SS for example). An outstanding soundtrack compliments the movie perfectly. Good versus evil and the Allies win against the Nazis in this one too. About a decade late on arriving to DVD, but worth the wait.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complex war story w/ Richard Burton Jan. 18 2011
By Marcia TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Where Eagles Dare
Part of Clint Eastwood collection is misleading. Made in 1969, Clint is a quiet second eclipsed by Richard Burton's effective performance as the leader of the team. Eastwood is an American Ranger sent on a British mission behind enemy lines because he's American. Burton works behind the scenes w/ a female agent unknownst to the team. In fact as the members of the team die and only Burton knows they are murdered the who reason for the mission -- get the general and get out -- is called into question.

The members of the team were picked because of their black ops training or were they? As the story unfolds and the mystery increases the movie becomes more and more fascinating. Burton is phenomenal as always and Eastwood shows glimmers of the actor he will become. The support cast are well-know British actors you will recognize.

the plot is convoluted and spell-binding as the story changes from scene to scene until finally all is revealed and there is a exciting climax. Well written, well acted and well directed. Add this to your war/espionage collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done and intriguing spy story. March 22 2007
By RJ
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you're looking for a simple and common shoot'em up and blow'em up war movie, then this won't be a good choice for you.

This movie has a complex plot, and it focuses on that other than simple guns and shooting and killing that so many war movies focus on. There is an intricate spy story in this movie, and those who wish for simple action will miss the compelling plot that Alistar Maclean wrote specifically for this movie. (He wrote the screenplay before he wrote the actual novel).

Richard Burton was an excellent choice as the British spy, and his sidekick Clint Eastwood was another fine choice. They both play their parts very well. Some may say that Richard Burton is 'over the top' in this movie, well, you are correct. But Richard Burton ALWAYS plays his parts like that. Anybody who knows the work of the screen legend would not accept otherwise.

Do not listen to the naysayers here. This is an excellent movie that gets right into the thick of things very quickly. There is no annoying sub-plot. Everything may seem overwhelming at first glance, but there's a reason behind everything done and said. As I said prior - pay attention, you are watching one of the best war/action/adventure movies ever made.

Pay attention when you watch this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yeah, I thought he looked a little nuts! May 31 2004
Format:DVD
Richard Burton was in need of hit, as his last several films didn't do great. He had seen The Guns of Navarone and liked the idea. So after talking to the author of the book Alistair MacLean, an idea was developed. Six weeks later MacLean handed Burton a copy of the script he had wrote called. "Where Eagles Dare." Burton stars as (Major Smith)a tough British Commando who leads a group of seven men into a rough mountain area located in the Alpines . Eastwood is (Lt Schaffer) the only American in the bunch. Although the group that lands in the mountains understands what their for (to rescue an American General who knows information about the upcoming D-Day landings) questions are still unanswered. Unkown to anyone except for Major Smith is Mary Elison (Mary Ure) who is there to help in the mission because she has connections with the Germans and SS! As Major Smith and Lt. Schaffer walk to the town around the castle in German uniforms they get a first hand account of what they are really in for. Rescue a American General and then get away. Suicide mission nonetheless, they take it and run. What happens in the first hour is nothing to what takes place in the hour plus that follows. Where the film gets touchy is the scene of the undercover agent. It takes place in a room with Nazi officals as well with Schaffer and Smith. What Elison is really along for during the mission is answered quickly (To get info and bail out Schaffer and Smith if and when they need it.) This is where the action starts and doesn't quite till the end. Some is well done and real, other parts aren't as well done. Filmed at great locations in Europe you can feel how cold and dangerous it was. I won't give away what else happens. It's a classic WWII war film with lots of action, shooting and explosions. Grade: B+

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Burton's or Eastwood's Best March 4 2004
Format:DVD
While many may find it easy to embrace the lack of realism and other problems with this movie, some will find it jarring. Eastwood must have been carrying his own body weight in small arms ammunition to lay down the volume of fire he produces. Unlike "The Guns of Navarone," the only Alistair MacClean movie worth watching, there is little tension and the twisting plot seems more time consuming than interesting. Both of the lead actors did much better in other WWII movies (e.g., Eastwood's Kelly in "Kelly's Heroes" gives us a far more interesting character; Burton's burned-out RAF pilot in the longest day is far more watchable than his spy in "Eagles"). Given all the movies before and since whose primary dialogue has been automatic weapons fire, I'm afraid there is little to recommend in this movie to raise it above the rest. The scenery is pretty, the action sequences are well managed, and aircraft watchers will love seeing the old airplane (Junkers 52). But for the rest... Get a copy of "The Guns of Navarone" for a good WWII adventure movie.
