Carlos M (br) wrote: It is sad to see a film begin so well, relying on stunning visuals and an impressive performance by Swank, and then go downhill in a second half that suffers from some serious problems of tone and does itself a great disservice by abruptly shifting the lead role from her to Jones.

Steve W (it) wrote: Nice production values and a cute romance can't save Return to Base: Black Eagle from falling into cliche territory. Its steeped in extreme melodrama, and is ferociously manipulative by developing a side character and his engagement, only to kill him off for forced emotion. The film has American soldiers who try to get in the heroes way, and even have most of the cast in anxious mode at the end when the hero doesn't immediately return, when we know full well he will. It blatantly rips off Top Gun, but at a lengthy 2 hours it never gets very exciting or memorable.

Aaron M (it) wrote: All good things is mysterious and ambiguous. Too much so that it takes away from the enjoyment. It slowly becomes a difficult movie to understand and witness. Jarecki does well to set an uncomfortable tone but I'm not convinced of Ryan Goslings ability to play the sincere creepy character set out. Despite the perseverance in trying to tell this story it didn't feel complete, perhaps this is acceptable due to the nature of the true events and unanswered questions failing to provide a definitive ending. Yet still I feel it would have been better suited to just a documentary, it didn't really work for me as a film. It failed to create suspense or act as a thriller, it was more a jumble of events timed alongside a narrative which told nothing.

Trevor P (gb) wrote: Everyone remembers Order of the Phoenix for its creation of the repulsively nasty Dolores Umbridge. Although the government may have received a poor reputation from this book/movie, the fresh creation of all characters (especially Luna Lovegood) generates a more densely emotional, more socially relevant addition from what the previous films brought to the table. Although I still would not say that Daniel's acting is getting any better at this point.

Excelente pelcula.

Jeff C (es) wrote: This is probably the worst of the series. It's sorry is stupid and at times it was hard to enjoy. Some bright spots in the movie is Jet Li and Rosamund Kwan thats really about it.

Emil A (jp) wrote: Very, very weak Ratnam. The pacing, normally a strong suit, felt forced, and a lot of the scenes were rather overdone. The first quarter of the film is the strongest; after that the characters feel increasingly flat and the tone degrades. There are hints of his personal style in it, but it's mostly pretty boilerplate. Worth watching if you're a Ratnam fan for completeness and to see his breakout work, but I can't otherwise recommend it.

Shane D (es) wrote: John Waters once said that if he hadn't started making movies, he probably would have been a murderer, and after watching this movie, I have no doubt that he was telling the truth. Thank god he settled on movies. There are enough murderers to go around, but there's only one John Waters.

Van R (mx) wrote: When British Major Richard Mace (Stewart Granger of "North to Alaska") with his stiff upper lip meets the five convicts from all parts of the globe who are going to help him carry out his difficult but important mission, he informs them from the start: "You men were not my choice for this mission. Intelligence seems to think that your peculiar talents could be of some value but don't for a moment imagine that serving under me will be easier than the prisons you came from. You've all been offered pardons to undertake this mission. You've given your word to cooperate and I expect you to keep it." Roberto Rocca (Raf Vallone of "Nevada Smith") is the most literate with a college degree in psychology and he becomes the organizer of the bunch. Mickey Rooney of the famous MGM "Andy Hardy" movies is an Irishman named Terry Scanlon; his specialties including picking locks and demolitions unless he can find a good bottle of corn whiskey to distract him. Edd Byrnes of TV's "77 Sunset Strip" is the forger Simon Fell. Tough guy actor Henry Silva of "Ocean's 11" is the cold-blooded assassin John Durrell, a man of few words whose actions speak far more eloquently than his language. Finally, William Campbell is pretty boy Jean Saval who can impersonate anybody. Mace and these men are part of an overall Allied invasion of the southern Europe, principally the Balkans. Their mission is to distract the Nazis from the actual invasion by liberating a high-ranking officer General Quadri (Enzo Fiermonte of "A Minute to Pray, A Second to Die") from a Nazi prison stronghold who can unite the partisans and keep the German Army busy. Producer & director Roger Corman earned a reputation cranking out low budget, drive-in movie creature features, but "The Secret Invasion" represents a drastic departure of his usual nonsense. This above-average World War II epic is bolstered by a strong cast headed by English actor Stewart Granger and scenic locations in both Croatia and Yugoslavia that lend a sense of authenticity to this impossible mission epic. Furthermore, produced as it was in 1964, "The Secret Invasion" beat director Robert Aldritch's superior pardon the convicts for a top secret classified mission "The Dirty Dozen" (1967) by three years. Mind you, "The Secret Invasion" wasn't the top box office draw of 1964 that "The Dirty Dozen" proved it was in 1967, but this offbeat World War II movie is still pretty damned good in and of itself. Our heroes enter the Balkans by way of a fishing boat, rather like Gregory Peck and his companions in "The Guns of Navarone," but things go awry when Simon tries to escape and the others have to dive over the side and swim around behind a Nazi patrol boat to kill the enemy. Once they enter the country, they start to work on a plan, but their plans are short-lived because the Nazis capture a resistance leader and he cracks under torture. Eventually, after a running roof-top gun battle between our heroes and the Nazis, the Germans are able to capture the good guys. As Roberto observes when the Nazis demand their surrender, they had planned all along to get into the prison one way or another. Once they are prisoners, they have to put up with the former commandant's eternal interrogations, but our heroes fool him long enough for Scanlon to pick the lock of their cell with a tool devised from dinner ware while Saval impersonates him. They manage to escape with General Quadri. The first convict to bite the dust is Simon Fell. Scanlon manages to blow up a machine gun nest in a fortified battlement but Major Mace receives a nasty leg wound and opts to lead their pursuers in the wrong direction. When the remainder of the convicts reach the resistance holed up in a monastery, they are surprised to learn that General Quadri is not General Quadri but instead an imposter! Now, how do they get out of this tight spot? "The Secret Invasion" qualifies as one of the few times that director Roger Corman proved that he could make a bigger budget picture. There's nothing really outlandish in R. Wright Campbell's formulaic screenplay. One of the most memorable scenes has one of the convicts smothering an infant to keep it from crying out and alerting the Nazis about their whereabouts. The irony is that the character that smothers the child while its mother stood beside him had no idea what he was doing when he did it. Hardcore World War II movie fanatics shouldn't miss this landmark pardon the convicts spectacle.
