Critic Reviews for Commandos Strike at Dawn

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

A Norway raid is carried out with letter-perfect realism. Yet for all its realism the raid is strangely unexciting.

Top Critic

At the end of it all we find that military considerations are abandoned, lives sacrificed and the whole operation imperilled because the hero's daughter must at all costs be rescued. The film is quite content to allow this piece of romantic nonsense.
