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 ›

I had been waiting for this title to come out in widesceen for some time. This film's greatest asset is its beautifully photographed landscapes. This DVD delivers these vivid images very strikingly and makes the film very enjoyable to view. This is not such a bad sequel as I thought when I first saw it on its original theatrical release. It is almost not a true sequel since characters and events referred to in "The Guns of Navarone" have either been altered or did not exist in the original. However, it still follows thematically with the original: a small band of Allied soldiers in W.W.II, penetrate a Nazi stronghold with the odds against them on an improbable mission. The score by Ron Goodwin is in the same vein as his "Where Eagles Dare" masterpiece. One interesting note about this DVD is that it offers both widescreen and Pan & Scan versions of the film. However, I believe the widescreen version to be from a British print, while the Pan & Scan version is the American version. There is different dialog between the two prints. That was an added bonus.

I first saw this movie 20+ years ago on HBO (I was about 13 and a huge "Star Wars" fan, so I watched anything with Harrison Ford), with no knowledge of the original "Guns...", so I definitely have a soft spot for it. The best way to approach it is like a 007 movie: not necessarily realistic or literary, but a good fun romp, and without the utterly implausible over-the-top histrionics of today's action flicks. Plus, it's chock full of Bond film veterans: Robert Shaw (Nash in "From Russia With Love"), Richard Kiel and Barbara Bach (Jaws and Maj. Amasova respectively, both from "The Spy Who Loved Me"), Edward Fox (M in "Never Say Never Again"), plus it was directed by Guy Hamilton, who did several Bond films, including "Goldfinger", "Live and Let Die", and "The Man with the Golden Gun". No tuxedos, Aston Martins, or shaken-not-stirred martinis, but hey, it's WWII. Good fun filmaking, underrated because of its association with its predecessor.

This movie is not awful, and the plot, musical score and acting performances are in many cases quite decent. However, it contains a wildly inaccurate, revisionistic depiction of the political affiliations of the various Yugoslav guerrillas.
First, the movie depicts the CHETNIKS as pro-German. NOTHING could be further from the truth. The Chetniks were anti-Communist, pro-Allied officers (led by Draza Mihailovic) who fought against the Wehrmacht in an attempt to restore the Yugoslav monarchy and the duly constituted government overthrown by the Germans in 1941. They had a generally western political orientation and were predominantly Serb. The USTASHE (headed by Ante Pavelic), on the other hand, were pro-Nazi and anti-Chetnik. They were overwhelmingly made up of Croatian nationalists and fought alongside the German army against the Chetniks and the Allies throughout the 1941-45 Yugoslav campaign.
The Communist PARTISANS (fronted by Josip Broz Tito) were pro-Soviet. Although Tito was a Croat, the partisans were principally Serb and fought against both the Chetniks and the Ustashe. They were far more reckless than the Chetniks in their fight against the Germans, and as a result their tactics invited the typically bloody German reprisals against the Yugoslav people as a whole. At the end of the war, the partisans turned their (Soviet supplied) arms against the Chetniks in a civil war against the Yugoslav government and brutally communized the war-weary nation, executing Mihailovic shortly afterward.
