John Thaw (Inspector Morse) was in this movie which is why I'm here. He died just recently and I was doing a little research. I saw this movie about 30 years ago so I'm hazy on the details. What I remember is that the movie had very little to do with that particular piece of military hardware. Instead, the actors basically stood around and vented their feelings at each other. This was a popular style of theater back then. We were all going to be honest with each other and say what we felt. While this is OK under certain circumstances; it tends to make for a very dull movie, especially when most of the expressed feelings sound unpleasant and mean spirited. I don't think I'd watch it again unless I was terminally bored.
