Rather dim-witted boys own WWII action movie based on a novel by populist hack Alistair MacLean. The action scenes are strangely dull and overlong but it does have some kitsch entertainment value, particularly involving the interplay between Burton and Eastwood.

I got very into this movie. A lot of the movie is spent with you trying to figure out which side Richard Burton is on. And really its a little longer than it needs to be. But once they finally get around to killing/ exploding Nazis, its cinematic gold. The whole time I was watching the movie I was thinking it seemed a lot like "The Guns Of Navaronne" (another exploding Nazis classic) then I discovered they were written by the same person. On a side note, I got a Clint Eastwood box set and its my new years resolution to watch and review all of them. This is my first one

Although it is preposterous and far fetched to the extreme, Where Eagles Dare is also one of the most entertaining war movies ever. Jam packed with Nazis, explosions, double crosses, triple crosses, fights atop cable cars and even more explosions, this is a move rich in escapism and unlimited energy. The casting gods were also working overtime in teaming up Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood and obtaining a splendid international ensemble as supporting players. An extremely well crafted boys own adventure that has become an undisputed classic genre film.
