GUNS OF NAVARONE (Released to Theaters USA 1961)


Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

Guns of Navarone—Gregory Peck—becomes an interesting movie due to its stage settings. It’s a good watch that emphasizes teamwork needed to accomplish the impossible. This film is not high quality for a World War II movie in portrayal. But the presentation is good and the story is well written. Gregory Peck’s introductory scenes are weak, but as the narrative moves along, his character gathers strength to match the severity of the movie’s predicament. This film becomes an important, instructive watch on courage, teamwork, and strict obedience to military protocol.
