 Synopses for Force 10 from Navarone (1978)

Generally underrated by critics, this 1978 sequel to the famous Guns of Navarone finds a miscellaneous group of commandos and spies trying to hinder the Nazis by destroying a bridge between them and the partisans. The story (based on a novel by Alistair MacLean) has nothing to do with the first film, but it is a tightly woven and entertaining piece with sharp performances and delightful character alliances. Director Guy Hamilton (Goldfinger) brings his trademark eye for handsome vistas to the canvas as well, so this is hardly the shoddy and dull knockoff many reviewers have previously suggested. No classic, perhaps, but a lot of fun. --Tom Keogh

2.Sheer Movie Magic! The Action Adventure Of The Year!" -The Hollywood Reporter

Robert Shaw (The Deep, Jaws) and Harrison Ford (The Fugitive, Air Force One) star as fearless World War II commandos in this thrilling follow-up to The Guns of Navarone. Directed by Guy Hamilton (Goldfinger) and adapted to the screen by Robin Chapman (screenplay) and Academy Award winner Carl Foreman (screen story), it's a large-scale action / adventure saga with "remarkable special effects" (Los Angeles Times) , a powerful cast and "one hair-breadth escape after another" (Newsweek).

In the darkest days of World War II, Hitler's armies are storming through Europe, annihilating all opposition in their path. But U.S. Colonel Barnsby (Ford) plots to strike a crippling blow to the brutal Nazi forces. To succeed, he'll need to help of the most skilled and lethal soldiers in the world: the Force 10 squad, fresh from its triumphant mission at Navarone.

3.Although "Force 10 From Navarone" in not a sequel to 1961's "The Guns of Navarone", it features two characters from the earlier classic.

This time the action is set in the Balkans, where the British daredevils are sent to destroy a bridge important to the German offensive. They are led by a young American Colonel and joined by Tito's Yugoslav partisans.
