Solid and entertaining, if a little unremarkable. The story's fine though the film could be paced much faster without losing anything, which would increase the tension. Everything else is ok too, not a lot of depth but nothing much to complain about.

Like PeaceAnarchy said, not much to complain about but unremarkable on the whole.

Damn good WW2 adventure film. Another example of how it pays to have a really good script before you start shooting

the roaring adventure parts are so riveting that im left a little bored when there's nothing super adventurous going on. entire cast does a great job, especially peck although niven really pulls it all out in his scene near the end and pretty much steals the show right then and there out from under peck.

Where Eagles Dare is the far more enjoyable 1960's version of "let's get some stars in Nazi uniforms undercover because they look snappy while also blowing up a lot of actual Nazis". Also for anyone who's familiar with the Moore Bond era, keep an eye out for Nazi Gogol who gets the Albert Speer treatment.

Gains momentum whenever the team is beating the crap out of the Third Reich. The climax in particular is an absolute delight. Everything in between, however, is mostly humdrum filler. All in all, a solid if somewhat forgettable WWII adventure.

A lengthy, but generally satisfying movie with easily apparent quality control errors although those are also easily ignored for some dated, but relevant war/action.

The pacing is god awful where the first hour or so is insanely boring. But on the second half, the films use of tension becomes its biggest strength hanging on the performances of Peck and Niven whose dynamic carries the film. On the other hand, the supporting cast is weak and its actual action scenes are mild and boring. I think this would be a much better thriller if half the movie was cut both in terms of length and cast.

Classic war film, classic film cast, classic film director, classic story. Anthony Quinn kills Germans real good, man.

Great--except for the part when Gregory Peck goes postal toward the end. You'll never question why he's so wooden all the time ever again.

A well made war film that shows its age with a predictable screenplay and pacing issues.

There are a lot of really ugly day-for-night scenes and it could have been 2 hours long, but those two hours are lots of fun.

Really more an adventure film than a serious war film. But it's pretty solid adventure. The action scenes are well crafted, and there's a nice ebb and flow of tension in the script. Peck is wooden as ever, but David Niven is a lot of fun and Anthony Quinn's got some chops too. I also have to applaud the Tiompkin score, appropriately epic-sounding without being too bombastic. The character moments feel very constructed, but it's of little concern. Good quality entertainment without much depth.

The double-crossing and misinformation saves this from being a hum-drum war film. Plenty of shades of grey on both sides and real emotional deliberation on what they are doing in the war. Outstanding.

I'm sure I'd enjoy this if hungover on a Sunday afternoon drifting in and out of consciousness. I gave up waiting for it to start about half an hour in

"Close your eyes, think of England and pull the trigger!" Classic for a reason, if not best in class then certainly top ten percent.

Hasn't aged well. The final 20 minutes are great but most of the time it's so slow and badly staged that it makes 'Where Eagles Dare' feel like 'Saving Private Ryan'.

Wonderfully old school Alistair MacLean WW2 spy film, that despite being thoroughly dated in some parts actually still holds up as a suspenseful thriller, with a great cast and some impressive saetpieces.
