Two powerful German guns control the seas past the Greek island of Navarone making the evacuation of endangered British troops on a neighboring island impossible. Air attack is useless so a team of six Allied and Greek soldiers is put ashore to meet up with partisans to try and dynamite the guns. The mission is perilous enough anyway but are the Germans on the island getting further help too?

An IMDB Review:
The Guns of Navarone is one of my favorite movies. In 1943, as the story goes, 2,000 British soldiers lay marooned on Kiros, an island within the Aegean. Preventing the rescue of these soldiers are two massive, radar-controlled Nazis guns. Keith Mallory (Gregory Peck) is recruited by Commodore Jensen (James Robertson Justice) and Major Franklin (Anthony Quayle) and is given what is pretty much a suicide mission: infiltrate the enemy-held island and destroy those giant guns before it is too late. Mallory's team of crack-commandos include Andrea Stavros (Anthony Quinn), who plans on killing him when the war is over, 'Butcher' Brown (Stanley Baker), explosives expert Miller (David Niven), young hot-shot Spyros (James Darren), and Franklin. "What took place in the next six days become the legend of Navarone".

This film is exciting and entertaining, and although it is a long one (2 1/2 hours), it rarely plods. It's always fun to see Nazis getting their butts kicked, and Navarone certainly does that well; There's a sequence early where the heroes, disguised as mere fisherman, stop their boat for an inspection. It's all routine until the bad guys are suddenly wiped out and blown-up without a second thought from the heroes. There is a storm sequence that seems to go on forever and during much of the sequence, dialog is kept close to nil. The rock-climbing scene is tense and attention grabbing, even some 40 odd years later. Each of the principle actors give strong performances, and there are several sequences that really stick out in my mind: A battle of words between Mallory and Miller about whether the mission is really worth it, and Stavros acting to be a poor fisherman from Cyprus.
