The Reviews for Age of Heroes (2011) 720p

It's hard to imagine a film based on a true story to be passionless and impersonal, but that is the case hereReviewed byTheUnknown837-1Vote: 6/10

In the fall of 2010, I spent a short time on the set of an independent film called "The Boarder," which was being shot in rural Nebraska. And one thing that I did learn while mingling amongst the technicians and actors was that even in something as aesthetically-driven as a motion picture, and with something passionate as a subject matter, it is still entirely possible for things to sour up and become impersonal. Movie-making is not easy, and the stress, I'm afraid, can wear out the artistic drive in some of us, especially if it's an early endeavor. That very well may have been the case, I'm afraid to say, with Adrian Vitoria's "Age of Heroes."

Again, it's hard to imagine a film based on a true story to be passionless and impersonal, but that is the case here. "Age of Heroes" is loosely based on a World War II British commando unit's mission to garner Germany intelligence. The particular mission was drawn up by Ian Fleming, who would later go on to write the James Bond novel series. So a story about men who risked and gave their lives, even in a shoestring budget film like this, is hard to imagine as soulless. But it is.

The way this movie is filmed, acted, scored, and executed, it's as if the filmmakers simply pulled the story out of a box full of potential stories and decided to roll along with it. Because it was their job, not because they particularly wanted to. Filming the battle scenes in this movie must have been very difficult, and unfortunately, the stress the directors and technicians had on them is apparent. It can be felt, and as a result, the scenes, meant to be white-hot, have a sort of staged, phony feeling to them.

There are worthy actors in the movie, headed by Sean Bean, but not one of them as a real part to act. What little personality they have is drawn straight out of previous war pictures. The key example is a tough commando sergeant, played with zest by William Houston; really just a pale imitation of the much-more-impressive gunnery sergeant from Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket" back in 1987.

If the film can be redeemed, it is in that it does not appear to aim particularly high. It doesn't have a big goal, so it doesn't accomplish much, and the failure isn't quite as compounding as it otherwise might have been. And a brisk 94 minutes, "Age of Heroes" was already over by the time I was really starting to grow bored.

Good Action Film with a Disappointing ConclusionReviewed byclaudio_carvalhoVote: 6/10

In 1940, Major Jones (Sean Bean) is assigned to team up an 8-men commando to travel to Norway with the specialist Roger Rollright (John Dagleish) to meet the agent Beowulf and destroy the German Freyo Station and steal the German state-of-art technology of Radio Direction Finding (RDF) in the Operation Grendel.

Jones travels to the Dashwood Military Prison to bring the soldier Brightling (Stephen Walters) and he brings also the insubordinate Corporal Bob Rains (Danny Dyer); then the commando heads to Scotland to be trained.

When they fly to Norway, they are discovered and the plane crashes. Six members of the military unit and the specialist survive to the attack. When they accomplish their assignment, the naval pickup is not possible and the survivors without supply and little ammunition need to walk to Switzerland in a dangerous journey through a land occupied by German forces.

"Age of Heroes" is a non-original film of war but a good action film. The story is a combination of several well-known war movies ("The Wild Geese"; "Inglorious Bastards"; "The Dirty Dozen"; "The Guns of Navarone" and others), with a promising beginning and a disappointing conclusion.

Sean Bean is among my favorite actors and he has a great performance as usual. The acting indeed is pretty good but the screenplay needed to be improved. I still do not understand why Jones shoots his own man with a precise shot instead of the sadistic officer that is torturing him. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Comando de Elite" ("Elite Commando")

A very good true war movie that went on a little long and made me lose interest. Worth watching, but be ready. I say B-Reviewed byTony HeckVote: 6/10

"Your orders were to get me home or to shoot me if you couldn't. If you stay here your gonna die & I'm not gonna shoot myself." The true story of a WWII unit that would later become England's SAS. A squad is formed to infiltrate Norway and retrieve an anti-jamming device the Nazi's have and bring it back in order to study the technology. When the mission goes south it is up to a wanna by captain to lead them to safety. This is a very good war movie, but it went on too long. I am not opposed to long movies if it holds your attention. This movie was very entertaining and exciting for about the first hour and a half, then I started to get a little bored and began to lose interest. So much so that by the time the ending happened I was disconnected with the characters and I don't think the ending had the same effect that the film makers wanted. Much like the way I felt about "The Way Back". Overall, this is a movie worth watching, but you have to be in the mood. I give it a B- (because I lost interest).
