4.0 out of 5 stars Senior Moments Prove Vital to War Efforts... Jan. 27 2003
Format:DVD
This review refers to the DVD(WB) edition of "The Sea Wolves"....
The neutral waters off Goa, a Portuguese colony in India, is the setting for this unusual but true war story.And what's more unusual are the heroes of this dangerous mission.
It is 1943, and German merchant ships are relaying information to U-boats as to the whereabouts of Allied war vessels. The German merchants being in waters considered neutral are all but impossible to stop.Two officers(Gregory Peck/Roger Moore) of a unique British Military organazation, are assigned to the task of putting an end to these deadly exploits.They turn to a group of seniors who are veterans but haven't seen action in over 40 years. These guys spend most of their time trying to stay on their Polo ponies at their little country club. They are "The Calcutta Light Horse". Most would give their right arms to see action again, and now they will have their chance...Their mission..to board the German Vessels and destroy them!
Led by one of their own(David Niven),they jump at the chance to help the war effort, and head fearlessly into danger,and face tense situations with bravery and humor and become heroes once again.The "Sea Wolves" is great war story, that is based on actual events, and will have you smiling and rooting for the good guys all the way through. And of course with Moore involved,you know there will be some romance as well!
You can't go wrong with this cast, who only get better and better with age. Also included are Patrick MacNee and Trevor Howard.It was directed by Andrew McLaglen and based on the book "Boarding Party" by James Leasor.It was beautifully filmed on location in India.
Warner Bros. has made a nice transfer to the DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars A throwback to old spy/wartime action movies... July 14 2002
Format:DVD
This is an interesting film, made with care and respect for the real-life heroes. However, it also is quite flawed, which is probably why it never made as huge an impact as the producers had hoped, either at the time of release or since.
Despite the famous cast on hand, the film feels more like a TV movie at times, while the story plays out like an old-time war/spy action film. There are plenty of cliches from this genre on hand, including the old regiment banding together once more, being trained on weapons and munitions at the last minute, an impossible task only the old fellows can achive, etc.
Another problem is that the exteriors were shot on location, which works some of the time, but leads to everyone except the actors wearing modern dress (complete with those ridiculously big collars left over from the 70's), having modern hairstyles, driving post-WWII automobiles, and the native residents of India staring and waving as they pass by the cameras.
Other than these points, the film is watchable and entertaining, and even sprinkled with decidedly British humor where appropriate. The top-notch cast makes up for any anachronisms, cliches, and lapes in logic. David Niven, Gregory Peck, Roger Moore, Trevor Howard, and others, save the day in what could have been a forgettable film. However, besides the cast, the ideas and much of the execution of the film both have merit, and this is indeed a true story. The facts of the mission were only released by the British government in 1978, and the film made a scant two years later.
For fans of Bond, we see Roger Moore doing something here that the newer Bond actors are now prohibited from doing; appearing during his reign as Bond in a non-Bond film wearing a tux (the tux being a Bond trademark of sorts).

3.0 out of 5 stars A cute little film May 5 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
If there is any such thing as a "sweet" war movie, this is it. The violence is about on par with a '50s western (I would let me 7 year old Godson watch this movie), and it's impossible not to like the cast.
One note: Roger Moore may be the most careless spy in history.

Gregory Peck, Roger Moore and David Niven are the lead actors in this true story having taken place in WW II in India and Goa. It is shot on location where it happened, giving great authenicity to the scenes and how they took place. I think just about every older English actor who has appeared in any war films is present here. This was one of the reasons I liked the film. A gathering of "old" friends in one place from the other films gives it credence as you know they are well trained, in a way. This is sort of like "The Wild Geese", same cast of characters in the support roles. The print of the film in 1.85 to 1 letterbox is of great quality. The surround sound works well. While the subject matter of getting the sinking of ships stopped is serious, there are many very funny spots as the older men of the Light Horse get geared up for war after 40 some years. There is one especially tender moment when David Niven is shaving at 5am and his wife is worried about another woman. Both Gregory Peck and Roger Moore play their respective characters believably. Not sure why they didn't check one character out............

5.0 out of 5 stars Sideshows
Certainly a different slant on a WW11 movie. Most movies are so focused on the big ticket items
like D-Day is that we forget the sideshows of the big picture.. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Product good. Prime was a waste.
I received the product, but the whole 'get it within the next 48 hours using Prime' was a bogus as one could endure. Days turned into well over a week and some. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic
Nothing like bringing back older classy actors to tell a story of the second world war. Suspense and espionage with a touch of class.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mountbattan
The title is misleading. Perhaps because many people hold Mountbatten responsible for the debacle at Dieppe(including myself) I can not stand to hear his name mentioned.

A great film, from a great seller. It arrived well before the due date, and was in perfect condition. This is one of those WWII films that seem to have gotten lost. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Great cast, dissapointing movie
You can't argue with the cast, who are all fine and entertaining. The main problem with this film is that the actors are given very little to do (that is interesting, anyway). Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars With a great cast, the movie could have done much better
The name and the cast made me buy this product, but after seeing 'Guns of Navarone" you get a feeling that this was a poor attempt and waste of good actors like Gregory Peck,... Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars A good film, if a bit quiet
This film is, as has been stated previously, a throwback to a lost era in film-making. The cast is generally superb, although some are underutilized (Patrick McNee in particular). Read more
