Movie Review by Movie Addict
May 30th, 2010

Favorite Movie Quote: "The only way to win a war is to be as nasty as the enemy."

In the age of splendiferous CGI and FX, we tend to forget there was a time when great actors performed in films.

Gregory Peck, David Niven, and Anthony Quinn are all Oscar winners, and Richard Harris had two nominations. Sadly, they are no longer with us.

Funny, it was FX that got this film an Oscar among it's eight nominations Navarone is fictional, of course, and the shots on Rhodes are a stand-in for the real island where the battle took place. The wedding scene was reminiscent of the wedding in The Godfather, with Greek music and singing. Andreas Markides and Dimitri Tiomkin provided great music in a war film that has a soundtrack available.

We need to watch great films such as this to remind us not only of the great actors of the past, but the sacrifices made by men in women in the cause of freedom.
