An all-star cast on a heroic mission of sabotage...

Guns of Navarone review

You can forget your Dirty Dozens and Inglourious Basterds – when it comes to all-star men-on-a-mission wartime heroics, this is the blueprint.

Gregory Peck (wooden), David Niven (irritating), Anthonys Quayle (stoic) and Quinn (crazy) join forces to sabotage the titular pair of giant cannons.

The glacial pacing, brass-band pomp and teak-varnished acting haven’t aged particularly well. But it still oozes quality as a classily directed war movie.

Tons of extras too, both old and new.
