Editorial Reviews

In the summer of 1944, top German officers initiated a plan to assassinate their own Fuhrer, Adolf Hitler. Realizing that the cause of the Third Reich was a hopeless one, these conspirators hoped that Hitler's death would allow them to negotiate a ceasefire with the Americans. Their amazing story is told in this action-packed drama featuring this powerhouse international cast.

Format: VHS Tape
I first saw "Breakthrough" thirty years ago on HBO when it was one of the few movies that channel ever showed. It was for me - a child of ten, my favorite film (next to "ATTACK FORCE Z" - which HBO also played repeatedly) of all time. How I wanted to be like Burton's Steiner, and when we went outside to play with our cap guns, that's who my mind's eye always envisioned me as. "Breakthrough" remained a favorite of mine for many years, garnishing many wonderful memories, and holding a special place in my heart.

A few weeks ago, the FILMZ channel actually showed it - albeit under the wrong film title (they displayed it as WILD GEESE - another favorite of mine)... well, what I experienced was not quite what my memory had held and cherished all these years, and my new opinion goes a little more like this:

A film can usually be judged on its own merits. But a film claiming to be a sequel to Peckinpah's "Cross of Iron" and featuring some of the greatest actors who ever lived needs to be held to a high standard. "Breakthrough" is a waste of time and fails in virtually all departments.

The plot cannot be taken seriously. It begins in late May of 1944, during the German retreat on the Eastern Front. "Cross of Iron" is set in January of 1943, yet our sequel begins where it left off, yet it's almost 16 months later. We are immediately introduced to several familiar characters, none of whom seem to measure up with their personalities from the original film. Sergeant Steiner (Richard Burton) is ordered by Captain Stransky (Helmut Griem) to blow up a railroad tunnel in order to prevent the Russians from using it. Steiner's squad fails miserably. Stop again: Coburn's Steiner was a crack NCO. He wiped out several different Russian outposts, patrols and tanks - with style.

This VHS tape was a good tape and contained an interesting story. However, certain facts in the story were fictitious since I know my history of World War II. Many good scenes, however.
