The four men who manage to escape into the Ardennes are a cross section of war-movie archetypes: a tough-talking sergeant; a devout, soft-spoken sharpshooter; a wisecracking medic from Brooklyn; and a blundering Cajun country boy. When a stranded R.A.F. pilot drops in by parachute, the stakes are raised: the Brit is in possession of German military intelligence that could save thousands of American lives. With a single rifle among them, no food, and a strained camaraderie, this tiny band must take on the unforgiving winter and a forest filled with enemy troops to fight their way back to Allied lines. An old-fashioned war picture, unambivalent in its portrait of war as a necessity and the heroism of self-sacrifice.
