REVIEWS

Review by Brian Phefley (posted on 1-Mar-2008)

Outstanding direction and acting made this one of my ten favourite movies of all time. Harry Andrews chillingly accurate display of British army Commanders of the time is chillingly accurate. Probly Sean Connery's best work. Ossie Davis provides welcome moments of comedy. A "must see" for all lovers of cinema.
