Saw it at the weekend.

Rather good!

Nicely authentic as far as I could see. More true to the real story than Operation Daybreak was.

Rather brutal, but the real story was.

Suggest you watch this one, certainly one of the best WW2 films in a while.

Scroll down to the 'play now' button at the bottom - not the 'stream or downlaod' button.
A couple of pop-up windows may appear, but close them and the movie will play eventually

Hmmmm ok, didn't think there was much difficulty with this one. Maybe knowing the story helps :)

I managed to catch it just before it went out of the cinemas. I thought it was fantastic, very biographical about the people, the attempt, and the resulting fallout afterwards. No Hollywoodisation of the characters or events.

I recommend you watch more than 20 minutes. One f the finest films of it's type. Really hits home and as Rob says, is true to the events, as of course no Hollywood thrills are required. Outstanding.
