| Laughable Nonsense
Where do I start? A film set in wartime Britain yet the action is based around a US pastiche mansion with cliché suit of armour in the hallway and Britain and continental Europe look exactly like a hydro-electric riddled Rocky Mountains. All except the most minor characters seem of US origin so giving the impression that the US won the war single-handed. Moreover, the minor players are incapable of mustering a decent British accent between them. To compound this jarring impression the story is clearly told from a naive historical perspective with, for example, Britain being described as the last free country left in Europe! Mix in the anachronistic nonsense of an all woman squadron flying helicopters in the early 1940s and you have the perfect US feminist escapist fantasy circa 1980s.
