British commandos unit on the mission in Norway to gather informations about German radar installations. Story based on real events that involved famous author Ian Fleming.

Corporal Bob Rains during the Battle of France got in trouble - first while he was retreating with remains of his unit he was accused of cowardice, and then he hit the superior, who accused him. After that he could not hope for good assignment, but after few months he was recalled together with rest of his platoon to take part in the special operation. British headquarters have set up mission into Norway fjords to acquire as much information as possible about German radar installations in the area. Major Jones, a hardened veteran, is put in charge of their training and in command during the operation. They are parachuted into enemy area together with Norwegian immigrant Steinar Mortensen, who will be their guide and girl called Jensen, who will be their link with Norwegian resistance. While the landing and approaching target goes quite smoothly the extraction from the area proves to be a challenge and it seems that Jones and his men will have to fight their way to the Swedish border.

Film based on real-life events that involved, later to become famous author, Ian Fleming’s unit - British 30 Commando Unit. Just like f.e. Attack on the Iron Coast the movie consists of two parts - the preparation phase and the mission itself. Both keep high level of realism, but at the same time they lack the pace. We watch the commandos mission not in a Hollywood style with hundreds of bullets flying around, but in rather low key and thus more realistic, but at the same time not very involving. Throughout the events we barely see the people involved, who they are, how they behave, so during the mission it is hard to really care about their success or failure. Age of Heroes is decent war movie, but creators did not balanced well the story between realism and attractive narration.
