About the Movie
Screen legend Gregory Peck ("To Kill a Mockingbird") and Roger Moore (James Bond series) lead an all-star cast in this suspenseful and powerful true story of a retired British cavalry unit undertaking an espionage operation in World War II. Shot on location in England.
The Sea Wolves
"If you do not cooperate, we will be delighted to kill you." Said as only Gregory Peck can say it. This rates right up with the WWII Epics with a more updated feel. Lots of action and humor. The post-middle-age Light Horse Brigade is activated by British Army Intelligence. Overnight the overweight, boozing "soldiers" leave their country club for boot camp for a top secret mission they know nothing about. I've seen this movie at least a dozen times and it never gets old. I'm delighted to see it offered on i-tunes; I'll surely update my worn-out VHS copy. There is one split-second boob shot, but my kids never saw it. Very tastful action, humor, and superb acting. jkentcpa
Too Long for a short story
The TV show Magnum P.I. fits more story into a one hour tv show than this movie does in two hours. It is a classic WWII movie which is a portrayal of real events and I don't expect the 21st Century effects but nevertheless it is a boring story. It isn't filmed, directed, or acted poorly it is just not two hours worth of anything interesting. You could spend two hours at a senior citizen center and get equal entertainment. Bridge Too Far, Longest Day, Guns of Navarone have memorable scenes that I saw 35 years ago. What is there to remember about this movie?
The Sea Wolves
I treasure this little-known action/adventure film. Gregory Peck is fatherly and strong as usual in his leadership role; Roger Moore (James Bond) is suave and deadly; Patrick Allen is charmingly irascible as head intelligence officer; while David Niven is Mr Smooth as always. The dessert? A DELICIOUSLY deadly female lead played with sunshiny iciness by Barbara Kellerman. Close-ups of her turned me into a Niagara of hormones! An entertaining blend of light humor and believable action. Based on a true story. Buy it and enjoy it.....please!
