Where Eagles Dare

Where Eagles Dare ★★★

A flawed film if seen in modern light. Not the story per se which was good. The action which reminded me of Arnold Schwarzenegger's Commando. No matter where the baddies shot, it always missed the good guys. While the good guys could be open and yet not be shot.

The final twist of the German agent was unnecessary. If he was a German agent, why the pointless questioning by the Nazis. They knew about him and he didn't need to be interrogated. Why did the rescuers have to rescue him?
