  • Films about the Second World War were highly popular in the British cinema throughout the fifties and sixties, but by the time "Escape to Athena" was made at the end of the seventies the genre was beginning to run out of steam. The film could be described as a sort of "Guns of Navarone" meets "Colditz". Like the former, it is set on a German-occupied Greek island, and like the latter it concerns the attempts of a group of Allied prisoners to escape from a prisoner of war camp. The prisoners, however, are not merely concerned with escaping. They also plan to make a raid on a nearby monastery in order to loot a collection of priceless Byzantine golden plates. The local Greek Resistance are also interested in the monastery, because the Nazis are using it as a base for the V2 rockets with which they hope to defeat any Allied attempt to liberate the island.

    One unusual thing about the film is that it features a "good German", although both the noun and the adjective need to be given a fairly wide definition. Major Otto Hecht, the commandant of the prison camp, is Viennese by birth, and therefore only German by virtue of the 1938 Anschluss between Germany and Austria. In civilian life he was an antique dealer, and he is not above using his military position to loot antiquities which he ships to relatives in Switzerland, hoping to sell them at a profit after the war. In wartime, however, embezzlement of this nature is a minor offence compared with the other crimes of the Nazis, and the comparatively liberal Hecht is repelled by the brutality of some of his comrades such as the fanatical SS Major Volkmann (played by Anthony Valentine who had played a very similar role in the early seventies British TV serial "Colditz"), and has no difficulties about throwing his lot in with the prisoners he is supposedly guarding.

    The other characters are something of a mixed bunch. We have David Niven going through the motions as an upper-class English archaeologist, Telly Savalas as a Resistance leader, Richard Roundtree as a black American POW and Sonny Bono as an Italian marooned on the wrong side after his country switched sides in the war. The war film is normally a male-dominated genre, although this one has rather more glamour than normal, with Claudia Cardinale as a Greek prostitute and Stefanie Powers as a swimmer turned actress (presumably based on Esther Williams), one of two American entertainers captured by the Germans, the other being Elliott Gould's Jewish comedian.

    It was a surprise to see Roger Moore playing something other than an Englishman, although it must be said that he does not make a convincing German. This film came halfway through his reign as 007, and he sounds much the same as he did when playing James Bond, making only the most perfunctory attempt at a foreign accent. As in some of his less successful Bond films he just seems content to stroll through the film without putting any great effort. To be fair, however, the same could be said of most of the rest of the cast. One wonders if they signed up merely in order to spend a few months in the Greek sunshine. Niven, for example, too old in his late sixties to be taking a leading role in an action film like this, seems even more laid-back than Moore.

    If the cast seem uninspired, that is possibly because they are dealing with a very uninspiring script. The film's occasional attempts to blend humour with action (mostly involving Gould's character) tend to fall flat. "Escape to Athena" is very much an average war adventure, or even a below average war adventure, with little to set it apart from all the other indifferent war films that had appeared on both sides of the Atlantic over the preceding few decades. 4/10
  • I only recently got to see this movie and – on the basis of the all-start cast and the still pictures that I had seen – I was expecting a well-made and slightly offbeat war film. I was very disappointed. This movie can't make up its mind whether it wants to be a comedy or an action / adventure yarn, and in the end it largely fails to deliver on either front. Roger Moore is hopelessly miscast as the antiques-loving German (or rather Austrian) PoW camp commandant, and a number of the other characters such as Sonny Bono's Italian chef, Michael Sheard's oafish German sergeant and Telly Savalas' Greek resistance leader are extremely caricature-ish. Even Richard Rowntree's PoW character comes across merely as Shaft in a GI uniform (coming out with expressions like `he's one cool cat'). The character Charlie (played by Elliot Gould) is a civilian USO entertainer whose plane was shot down over the Mediterranean, with him and his female colleague being captured and placed in the PoW camp. However, when these two are introduced early on, we see them looking like a pair of well-heeled American holidaymakers. Both are immaculately groomed and dressed, and they certainly don't look like two people who have just been fished out of the Mediterranean after their plane has been shot out of the sky - the woman is even lugging all her suitcases behind her!!! I assume that we're supposed to believe that they too would have survived the shootdown without even a scuff mark and then floated up from the plane wreckage to be conveniently retrieved. I have to admit that initially I found the Charlie character fairly amusing and even laughed at some of his one-liners. But ultimately he became more annoying than funny. The action scenes later on were also fairly predictable and boring. I got the impression that the makers of this movie were trying to combine elements from those classic war films `The Guns Of Navarone', `The Great Escape' and `Kelly's Heroes' (we even had David Niven who appeared in the former and Telly Savalas from the latter). But this movie is not a classic in any way, shape or form. It oozes mediocrity in all areas. On the plus side, the Greek islands location is wonderful and the camera work is on the whole pretty good. And the beautiful Claudia Cardinale graces any movie that she's in. On balance though I'd have to give this film just 3½ out of 10. Not the worst war film I've ever seen, but definitely `below average' and – given the amount of big names in it – the end result is a massive disappointment.
  • This film came free with today's paper, so perhaps I'm in an indulgent frame of mind. However, much as I admire the wit shown by IMDb members in panning this film, I have to disagree with them. Escape to Athena is a very enjoyable romp indeed, with all sorts of excellent stylistic touches, some really gratifying explosions, humour that is a trifle dated but not so bad if you lean back and accept it, and an interesting plot. I don't know why people require a movie to go all the way in one direction, ie be edge-of-the-seat suspense, or cataclysmic tragedy, or roll-in-the-aisles hilarious, or weepie romantic etc. etc. Why can't it be a bit of everything? I think we're far too used to the extremes that have become fashionable of late. Forget Daniel Day-Lewis bursting a vein, if just for one evening. You'll feel better for it. However, Telly really can't dance. That I must agree with.

    It's really tough to make a comedy out of a POW movie, and it's even tougher to make the most predominant Nazi character likable. Somehow, Escape to Athena manages to do both.

    Elliott Gould and Stephanie Powers are American entertainers, taken to the famous Stalag 17 prison camp, where veteran residents David Niven, Sonny Bono, and Richard Roundtree show them the ropes. It turns out, the gang is only pretending to behave and cozy up to their captors; they're involved in a secret plot to liberate the camp, with outside help from Telly Savalas and Claudia Cardinale. By far, my favorite part of the movie is when Elliott and Stephanie arrive. They walk past some prisoners outside in the fenced yard, and Elliott gives a double-take to William Holden. "You're still here?" he asks, referencing Bill's Oscar-winning performance in 1953's Stalag 17.

    Even though the movie can feel a little strange at times-Roger Moore plays a Nazi and he frequently jokes around with the POWs, and he treats Stephanie like a girlfriend instead of a prisoner-it's actually pretty good. There are some tense moments when the gang takes steps in their master plan of escape, and there are some pretty cute moments of camaraderie. If this type of quirky comedy appeals to you, you'll probably like it. It's not one I'll watch over and over again, but I did enjoy it.
  • This WWII movie takes place on somewhere in Greek islands during 1944 , a misfit prisoners group(a stoic David Niven,a two-fisted Richard Roundtree, among them) are scheming escape from the concentration camp and at the same time the robbing in an Ortodox monastery at the top of the island's mountain. At the bunch appear a distinguished David Niven(whose son David Niven Jr is producer), an Italian cook(Sonny Bono), a member of the Greek Resistance(Telly Savalas), a prostitute( beautiful Claudia Cardinale) and among Nazis are a former Viennese art merchant(likable Roger Moore) and a cruel Nazi(Anthony Valentine).The gentleman Nazi officer Moore is stuck with the outfit of goof-offs as they search for the Greek treasure.

    Basically an amusing action filled /wartime/and comedy set during WWII. It's a crossover among the rogue soldiers from ¨The Kelly's heroes(Brian G Hutton)¨, the getaway from ¨The great escape(John Sturges)¨ and the humor included in ¨Hogan's heroes¨ taking parts here and there. This wartime picture which is short in realism instead we have far-fetched but moving blow up, shoot'em up, fighting , it should please most adventure-action-comedy buffs.Middling screenplay by the prestigious Edward Anhalt.Some characters aren't credible in 1944 setting , neither the Nais soldiers dressed in black when parade along with the secret German rocket installation.Roger Moore is miscast as an Nazi official and Elliott Gould as a hippie-alike sound embarrassing. Cameo by William Holden as prisoner smoking a cigar in prison camp and he appears uncredited. Luminous and shimmer photography by Gilbert Taylor. Stirring and military musical score by Lalo Schifrin. This improbable motion picture is professionally directed by George Pan Cosmatos. Although the movie has some aspects a little tough to take , this caper film still has its moments.This large-scale and lavishly produced pic attempts a bemusing atmosphere with regular results.
  • This movie was blasted by the critics but who cares? It's not exactly a comedy, not a drama, but it does have a lot of action and adventure plus an all-star cast that all play wonderfully off one another, notably Elliott Gould and Stephanie Powers, who always have great comic timing anyway, but here they're a delight together, especially in the "stripping" scene on stage. It's got some good chases and gorgeous scenery of the island of Rhodes. Give it a whirl!

    Roger Moore is the Austrian commandant of a German POW camp located in the Grecian Isles in Escape to Athena. He's got a couple of favorites among the prisoners, an Italian cook in Sonny Bono, an archaeologist in David Niven and a black GI magician in Richard Roundtree. In addition USO entertainers Elliott Gould and Stefanie Powers are shot down in their transport plane and become Moore's prisoners.

    Moore really hasn't got his heart in the commandant business. He's an antique dealer in civilian life and he relishes the assignment only because of the location where he's also involved in Adolph Hitler's looting of Greek antiquities of which there are many in that area. Niven and company aid him because if they didn't they'd be in the hands of the SS. STill they want there freedom.

    Which they get when they join with resistance leader Telly Savalas and his mistress, bordello madam Claudia Cardinale. It's rumored there's a lot of hidden loot in a monastery on a nearby hill, whatever Moore hasn't taken for his own private stock for after the war. But Savalas is interested in some prototype V2 rockets located there.

    Escape to Athena mixes the plot elements of The Guns of Navarone and Topkapi, but they're not stirred too well. The scenery is quite nice and I'm sure the prospect of some paid time in the Aegean Sea might have been a big inducement for all these people signing on for the movie.

    As he was involved with Stefanie Powers at the time, William Holden gets a small unbilled cameo in a brief scene with Elliott Gould. As it turns out Moore's Prison Camp is also Stalag XVII. That might have been part of the package for Stefanie to go to Greece.

    It was also plain dumb to make Richard Roundtree a black GI. Americans were not involved in that theater, let alone black soldiers. Now if they had made his character be part of the African colonial troops of the British Empire, it would have made more sense. Then again we couldn't have heard Roundtree call a German soldier a 'cool cat'.

    The action sequences are done well enough, but the cast here just collected their paychecks and walked through the parts.
  • No one likes this film. Why not? It is a remarkably good film, with an excellent cast. Telly Savalas seems to be remarkably at home in this film; he is very natural. I also think that it is good to see David Niven in a different setting to his usual role as the English gentlemen. However, Roger Moore's German accent is appalling. The character of Charlie is also well imagined, and the motorcycling stunts are first class. There are some great one-liners: "I think your defection to the Allies must be taken as something of a mixed message." And did I mention the soundtrack from Heatwave (at the end of the film) ...
  • 'Escape To Athena' Is an enjoyable late seventies's Action War Comedy, That has an all Star Cast, The story is set somewhere in the Greek islands circa 1944, and center's around the efforts of local, Resistance fighter Zeno Telly Savalas) Who is aided by the ever gorgeous Claudia Cardinale,

    Their plan is simple liberate the islands from the inhumane German occupation,And rightfully reclaim the Art treasure's of Athena before the Nasty Nazi's do!

    Roger Moore, Is Major Otto Hecht, A Former shady antique's dealer come jazz lover, Elliout Gould, And Stephanie(Hart To Hart, Power's) Play a USO duo who provide's the film with some light hearted moments's

    Sonny Bono, is a Italian chef, This guilty pleasure also star's The original 'Shaft' Richard Roundtree, And David Niven,

    The film is chock full of Action which display's some stunt technique's then 'new' at the time such as ramp's to propel the stunt's person forward in an explosion,And hidden air Cushion's for some high fall's(which for some reason there's lot's!)

    There is a great stunt motorcycle chase,with Elliott Gould which feature's some great Steadicam work, all in all a great film, now available on DVD in 2:35:1 widescreen
  • That's what even the most patient, saintly moviegoer must have done during this trite film's theater showings. Was it a joke? The playing of 'The Saints Go Marching In' during one of the film's early aerial shots? I mean, Roger Moore, unconvincing, of course, as a German officer, once played 'The Saint'! When I saw 'music by Lalo Schifrin', I expected the best musical score! In any case, this movie, with its impressive cast (wait...Sonny Bono?) promises a lot but delivers little.

    OK
    George Cosmatos directs a World War II action yarn involving prisoners of war in Greece, archeology, a super-secret missile base, SCUBA diving and Greek partisans.

    Cosmatos directs this rather flabby melange of elements competently. He was a reasonably successful action director in the period. He combines these elements using some mildly anachronistic joke, fine camerawork by Gilbert Taylor, and a cast of competent stars who have slightly exceeded their sell-by date: Roger Moore (as a Nazi officer), Telly Savalas, David Niven, Stephanie Powers, Claudia Cardinale, Richard Roundtree, Sonny Bono, and Elliot Gould all appear for the benefit of an audience nostalgic for the 1960s.

    There's nothing particularly wrong in this movie, but there's nothing particularly compelling about it either.
  • Warning: Spoilers
    A great cast cannot save this poor film. It is meant to be set in WW2 but everyone appears to have 1979 hairstyles and talk in 1979 language. It was meant to be tongue in cheek I think but it just comes across as over the top and not even remotely realistic.

    When the Germans are setting up their rocket towards the end the operators have crash helmets with obviously 1970's reflective mirror visors.

    None of the starry cast can really say they put in a half decent performance. Elliott Gould in particular hams it up for all he is worth and at least he looks like he had fun making it. Roger Moore as a German is not realistic either. At least he (sort of) attempted a German accent. Telly Savalas was maybe just getting over the disappointment of Kojak finishing as he was uncharacteristically poor in this. Even Richard Roundtree, so cool as Shaft, looks like he couldn't be bothered.

    Overall a poor film with poor performances and very much lacking in realism.
  • How's this for a dazzling international cast: Roger Moore, David Niven, Stephanie Powers, Elliot Gould, Telly Savalas, Claudia Cardinale, Richard Rountree and Soony Bono? All in one film! There's also the briefest of cameos by the great William Holden. Surely to assemble such talent suggests that this film started out with a promising script. It's a shame, then, that in the final analysis Escape to Athena is such dismal, amateurish junk.

    The story takes place on a Greek island during WWII. Various Allied POWs survive under the fairly relaxed custody of German officer Roger Moore, but they begin to form ideas above their station when they hear of a Nazi-occupied monastery nearby which is full of priceless art treasures. A small group of escapees scale the island mountains and attempt to steal the loot from the German forces.

    Everyone looks like they're on vacation in this one. Certainly no-one seems to give two hoots about the story. The action highlights are few and far between, and much of the comedy banter - intended to breathe life into the characters - falls horribly flat. Moore gets top billing but has terribly little to do with the story; Gould probably lands the juiciest role, but he overplays it to the point of irritation.
  • You'd have to be really terrible to take such a talented cast and make such a terrible movie. The higher you fly, the further you fall comes to mind. I can't even give it the ole' for 13year olds, by 13 year olds. Completely tone deaf.

    Despite the interesting cast (Elliot Gould! David Niven! Roger Moore as a German! Sonny Bono!) and the truly amazing scenery on the island of Rhodes, I have to disagree with other posters on this site who have given this film even a modestly positive rating. This has to be one of the worst war films ever.

    If you've ever seen Kelly's Heroes (1970), you may remember Donald Sutherland's character Oddball, who spoke in a late-60s, early-70s hippy-dippy patois, calling things "groovy" and "out-a-sight" and so on. This kind of anachronistic speech spoils large sections of Escape to Athena. I wonder how old the script was at the time it was made... When Gould's character says to Moore's that he will have the "grooviest camp around," I had to check the release date (NINE years after Kelly's Heroes).

    ***SPOILERS AHEAD*** Near the end of the film, when the true objective of the Greek resistance becomes clear (a V-2 type rocket installation), the Germans roll out one of their weapons, trailed by a company of men in (anachronistic) mirrored-visor helmets. I presume that buying the helmets was cheaper than hiring more extras, since they allowed any actor, even one that had appeared earlier, who had been shot or blown up, to reappear in a jumpsuit and helmet and...march...slowly... in lockstep....behind...a rocket...without performing any function whatsoever! It's laughable! I though I had suddenly fallen through a filmic wormhole into a bad James Bond imitation.

    A complete waste of time.

    This film is a fantastic brochure for Greece and it's surrounding Isles. There are some beautiful shots of mountains and hills and then Roger Moore steps in and blocks the view. We get to see a gorgeous, ancient monastery but then Telly Savalas blocks the view by firing a machine gun and lumbering around. Damn. The ocean view was very pretty until Elliot Gould got in the way, slipping on a banana skin. "Move out of the way, Elliot! You're blocking the scenery!" The trees were particularly lovely until David Niven blocked the view. These actors keep getting in the way of the visual tour of the islands that we are treated to. I wonder if the Greek Tourism Commission got a rich cut of this films earnings? What? What do you mean it flopped?

    I watched the movie a few years after it was released. Then I watched it on TV a few times and I enjoyed it every time. It is true that for a war film it looks sometimes unrealistic (as someone has already said) like "a holiday brochure" (really nice pictures). It is however an adventure film, with elements of comedy, so it is NOT meant to be realistic. The only realistic scenes are the ones from the town. I liked the actors - especially Roger Moore and Telly Savalas. They are very contrasting characters. I hope it will not be a spoiler to say that Roger plays a nice man that happens to be on the wrong side and Telly plays a cynical, ruthless (at least looking like that) man being on the right side. I liked some dialogues as well.
  • The varied cast of characters include some big names, but the humour and acting is nothing remarkable. Good use of scenery and I liked the buildup of the resistance, but the story isn't great and the German occupation feels more like an inconvenience than real oppression. The action scenes and chase scene are entertaining, but the final act is a bit silly, although it does make for an explosive finale.
  • Absolutely dreadful 70s mish mash of comedy and action - all overacted and under directed. This really has lazy written all over it - dialed-in performances and everything is done in a way that belittles everyone involved.

    The plot of a misfit gaggle of POWs on a Greek island with a benevolent German commandant (Roger Moore) who decide to rob a Monastery sounds good but the reality is just awful, and horribly banal.

    The whole film is not helped by occasional forays into a harder colder sadistic SS company who arbitrarily hang and shoot the Greek citizenry, and Telly Savalas as an ex-monk with too much testosterone is no better.

    Have to be honest and say this is probably my least favourite war film of all time - it just jars at every stage - even the great David Niven - who could make any line seem natural - seems totally bemused by the awfulness of the effort here. Maybe he did it out of paternal love for his son who co-produced this fiasco.

    I firmly believe this film was one of the main reasons Hollywood stopped making WWII films and started making Vietnam films, and on the evidence here who can blame them? Fantastic cast, awful, awful, awful film - not even worth watching on a cold, wet Autumn Saturday - honestly...Look and feels like an amateur holiday video... good luck enjoying this one!
  • I happened across this film at a used video sale, saw the cast list and immediately bought it. I mean, Sonny Bono AND Richard Roundtree? Cosmotos did a bang up job of translating the James Bond formula to the 1940's (though with the ocassional anachronism -- the word "groovy," Bono's haircut). And what a motorcycle chase! I'm not a chase fan, but this one is on par with some of the greats. Just enough stuff to keep the jaded fan amazed.

    In 1963 I bought an 8mm cine camera and immediately began shooting my first (and only )movie.The opening shot(in glorious Agfacolor and filmed on location at the Sussex Downs near Brighton) consisted of a 10 second zoom (the very latest technological miracle) of a cow evacuating its bowels.After this inspired start things went downhill pretty fast and the whole thing ended up first on the cutting room floor and later on the Guy Fawkes Bonfire.I feel that the director of "Escape from Athena" could have learned from my experience.As 8mm film was available only in 4 minute reels at least my masterpiece was mercifully brief.You filmed for two minutes,took the reel out and put it back the other way round before continuing,inevitably "fogging" about 15 seconds at either end,which left you with about 3 and a half minutes of usable footage,so he and I have at least that in common. However,I would caution you about ploughing through this terrible movie just in order to watch the motor-cycle chase,it's good - but not that good. David Niven looks as if he had recently been exhumed,Elliot Gould does an impersonation of Chico Marx that palls very quickly.I'm not sure what Stephanie Powers was doing,but at least she had the good grace to look embarrassed.Claudia Cardinale must have had an unexpected Tax Demand. Roger Moore presumably was at a loose end for a couple of days and needed to keep his eyebrows in training.Telly Savalas gets to do what is without doubt the worst Greek Dance scene in movie history and any film that resorts to featuring Sonny Bono is in dire dire trouble. Anybody I have missed out may consider themselves lucky. I will not mention the plot because plot is not the four-letter word that immediately springs to mind in conjunction with this movie. If there is even an outside chance that you can choose to watch celery grow rather than sit through "Escape to Athena" I thoroughly recommend that you take it.
  • Imagine getting David Niven, Telly Savalas, Claudia Cardinale, Stephanie Powers, Elliot Gould, Richard Roundtree and Roger Moore all together in one movie and then making this out of them. You can actually see all these great actors thrashing about, trying to make a purse out of a sow's ear in every single scene.
  • A British action adventure; A story about Allied PoWs incarcerated on a Greek island who plan to break out of prison and pull off an art robbery with the help of their liberal-minded Austrian camp commandant. This 'Stalag 17' style P.O.W. action adventure is feeble on jokes and lacking suspense but it is packaged with some pleasing elements. A joke cameo appearance from William Holden early on prepares us for not-so-serious light entertainment, yet there are some serious moments which make it feel a little uneven. It is beautifully shot with a stellar cast and there is a fabulous motorcycle chase through the narrow streets of Rhodes. One of the main criticisms of the film is that with no obvious lead role it has a disjointed feel. All in all, it's mild Sunday afternoon fun.

    Planning to catch up on TV shows last week,all my viewings got stopped, when I caught some Australian flu. Getting over the illness,I looked for an easy-going flick to view. Missing it during a showing a few months ago,I was pleased to see this title appear on the BBC iPlayer,which led to me escaping to Athena.

    The plot-

    Nazi Occupied Greece 1944:

    On a small Greek island, Major Otto Hecht uses POWs to dig up artifacts on the island that he can send to his sister. Aware that their lives depend on artifacts constantly being found,the POWs slyly take objects back to the site for "re-discovery." Learning of a nearby U-Boat refueling depot,the POWs plan to finally escape from Athena.

    View on the film:

    Losing 30 minutes of footage in the hopes of it playing better in the US, the screenplay by co-writer/(with Edward Anhalt and Richard S. Lochte) director George P. Cosmatos retains a Boys Own Adventure atmosphere,with the isolated state of the island building tension between the POWs and the Nazis,that explodes in the second,action-filled part of the movie. Breaking out the Men on a Mission genre, the writers keep all the characters at a rough sketch level,but give the movie enough quirky asides to keep the bullets flying,from the unique use of artifacts at the centre of the island,to a Nazi joining the goodies!

    Whilst not a match for their extraordinary TV productions, ITC make sure that the glossy, almost- futuristic sheen that glows in The Avengers & The Prisoner is prominent, with the gliding crane shots from cinematographer Gilbert Taylor (who had worked on some Avengers eps) giving the film's setting an isolated in time aura. Later taking one man war machine Rambo to war in First Blood part 2, director George P. Cosmatos's takes these Men on a Mission to war with rapid fire set-pieces,from a thrilling,ultra stylised motorbike chase,to the blast of smoke and fire in the shoot-outs being against an ancient Greece backdrop.

    Casually dropping the German accent mid-scenes,Roger Moore gives a wonderfully boo-hiss,not at all threatening performance as Major Otto Hecht,whilst fitties Claudia Cardinale (who has an eye-catching dance number) and Stefanie Powers give the macho-action a touch of glamour. Joined by a tough talking Richard Roundtree as Nat Judson, David Niven perfectly matches Moore by layering on the charm as POW Professor Blake,who breaks out with the artifacts.

    Insulting to Our Armed Forces. Wasting your time watching this one. Telly was awful, and roger Moore should of stayed home rearranging his sock drawer when they asked him to be in it. No basis of a story, and nothing in it depicts reality of WWII
