The Reviews for 48 Hours (1942) 720p


Rare propaganda film which ages wellReviewed byiangingeVote: 7/10

1942. That is the important date to bear in mind when watching this film. That was when the film was made, and when the UK cinema auidences watching it knew that all that separated them from invasion was a few miles of sea. Imagine the impact it must have had!! Plucky Brits, living in the rural English idyll, threatened by the Hun. Having witnessed their brave fight, the auidences must have come out of the flicks wanting to take on the German army on their own. The comparisons with 'The Eagle Has Landed' are easy to make, but just remember that date of 1942. The threat was real to the people watching it, unlike those watching 'The Eagle' for the very first time. Cracking afternoon entertainment, with a message of its time.

War Time Rallying Cry...Low-Budget Masterpiece of Prideful PropagandaReviewed byLeonLouisRicciVote: 10/10

What if the Nazi's Executed a Surprise Land Invasion and what would happen in a Small Sleepy Village? What would be the Result and Impact on the Unprepared Citizens, especially Women and Children.

It was a Nightmare Scenario put forth in this Wartime Thriller and the Film Pulls Few Punches in its Portrayal of the Events that were Not Far from the Minds and Concerns of the British Population.

The Bleak and Brutal Occupation from the Germans sets in Motion an All Out and Rousing Retaliation from the "Good Folks" of the Village on the "Evil Invaders" and with Not a Second Thought the Civilians Take Up Arms against the "Godless" Foe. Utilizing Everything from Captured Machine Guns to Garden Tools.

Women and Children Battle on the Front Lines and are Injured and Killed in the "Line of Duty". Using Their Wits and Determination, it's a Fight to the Finish and what Ensues On Screen was Not for the Faint of Heart in 1942 or any Year for that Matter.

The Violence Shown in this Low-Budget Propaganda Piece is Visceral and there are Scenes of Up Close Carnage Never Before Seen in British Cinema.

There is a Final Battle Siege that is a Wow with Adrenalin Inducing Action, Music/Sound, and Mayhem. Overall it is an Extremely Effective Evocation of Patriotism and Pride and as a Movie it can Stand Up to most War Films of its Era.

It went very wellReviewed byAndrewPhillipsVote: 9/10

Now I am a sucker for "what if" stories, and what better to have Germans occupying an English village during the war.

What we have in this gem of a film is a great story, we see the villagers pull together and overcome the foe in heroic fashion. We are not spared the horrors of war, I think particularly of the scene when the telephone operator having summoned the courage to kill her German captor is killed trying to contact someone for help, you don't see anything but because of that it is all the more powerful. You are on the edge of your seat hoping the eggs with the message on will get through. We see a lady driving in her car, singing to herself, we then cut to the home guard being mown down on the road, their bodies cleared just as the woman drives round the corner. The two scenes together make for a powerful contrast. Bloody good stuff.

The pace continues through the film at such a rate that you do find yourself on the edge of the seat, the acting is great, though some may find the clipped English accent a little annoying, I liked the fact that there are a number of different accents from cockney to Yorkshire all making the "in it together" message more powerful. When the villagers start to fight back we get to see some hero's, none more so than the lady at the manor house who to save the children throws herself onto a grenade, I remember seeing this scene for the first time and being very moved by it, and every time I watch it again it has the same effect.

As a piece of propaganda it must have worked like a dream as a film it is well made and acted, what more could you want. Even more impressive is that it has aged very little.
