Force 10 from Navarone (1978)

Director: Guy Hamilton

Starring: Robert Shaw, Harrison Ford, Barbara Bach, Edward Fox, Franco Nero, Carl Weathers, Richard Kiel

More info: IMDb

Tagline: The Odds Against Them Were 10,000 to 1...But What the Hell!

Plot: During World War II, several oddly assorted military experts are teamed in a mission to raid and destroy a bridge vital to enemy strategy.

My rating: 7.5/10

Will I watch it again? Roger.

Forget about GUNS OF NAVARONE (1961). You can't go into this picture thinking it's some kind of a sequel. It is but it isn't. Once you sever that link just sit back and relax while you watch a good, old-fashioned WWII movie with an all-star cast - the kind they don't make anymore. It's loaded with badass actors, it's got a fun, rousing score by Ron Goodwin and it's great fun from start to finish.
