On the English South Coast, Chris (Ewan McGregor, Star Wars: Episodes 1-3), a young farm worker, dreams of the chance to join the army and fight in exciting new lands. His chance comes when the three top Nazis the enormous Goering, the malnourished Goebbels and the scarily campy Himmler hatch a plan to invade England by drilling under the English Channel and into the heart of London. With the entire British army stuck in Dunkirk and no military support to defend the country, Churchill (Timothy Spall, The King s Speech) issues a final radio broadcast from his bunker in Downing Street. Upon hearing the broadcast, Chris rallies the reluctant villagers, aided by American pilot Billy Fiske (Dominic West, The Wire), demanding that they help save England and the world! Tom Wilkinson (Michael Clayton), Alan Cumming (X-Men), Rosamund Pike (Barney s Version), and Richard E. Grant (Withnail and I) round out the all-star voice cast of this riotous supermarionation epic.
Unfortunately it succeeds in being too stupid resulting in scenes that are meant to draw laughs looking childishly goofy.
This sets a course in which Churchill must be liberated from 10 Downing Street even as the neighborhood is being overtaken by those that wish to cage the great leader.
Then again, if you're the sort of person who finds The Battle of Britain riveting viewing, you may find this a comic delight.
