Loosely based on fact, "Tobruk" tells the story of an Allied mission to
destroy Rommel's fuel supply at the port city of Tobruk. The film is
quite entertaining, and there are some good ideas in the script, and
some nicely shot action scenes, but the film never really rises above
In 1942, the fate of the Mediterranean hangs in the balance. The Allies
have devised a scheme to stop Rommel's advance to the Suez Canal. A
group of German Jews led by Captain Bergman (George Peppard), now
working with the British, will escort a company of English commandos
led by the staunch Colonel Harker (Nigel Green) across 800 miles of
harsh desert right into the port of Tobruk, where they will knock out
the harbor guns which prevent British troops from landing in the
harbor. Then the British will land a strike force to destroy Rommel's
colossal underground fuel dump. The movie follows the trek across the
desert, where the characters bicker over opposing ideals and motives,
discover a traitor in their midst, get stuck in a minefield, etc. etc.,
and as expected, resolve their differences during a climactic encounter
with the enemy.
"Tobruk" is ultimately a movie about conflicting ideals. There are
plenty of noisy action sequences and suspenseful moments, but at the
heart of the story is a weakly established conflict over different
moral standards held by the main characters. Director Arthur Hiller had
a significant background in directing TV shows, and it shows. "Tobruk"
has a small-scale feel to it from start to finish. The sets even the
vast outdoor desert plains are never filled with thousands of extras.
This is a movie about what goes on between a few main characters.
What's unfortunate is that in "Tobruk" they're never fully developed
and, therefore, it's hard to care when they are settled. Major Craig is
a selfish pacifist, but all he really does is bicker about how much he
hates being on the mission. Nigel Green's Colonel Harker is a typical
English officer, playing a part written as most Hollywood roles for the
English characters were. He demands order, obedience and when men don't
stand up to his authority he just shouts a lot and gets his way. Of the
leads, George Peppard makes the most of his role as Captain Bergman.
Bergman, a victim of Nazi terror, is out for revenge and out to help
re-unite the Jewish people. What's hard to swallow is that Bergman
already seems to know the Jews will re-unite in Israel, when it wasn't
re-formed into a nation by the U.N. until sometime after the end of
World War II. Despite this, Peppard is passionate but never overacts.
This is the type of role he was perfectly suited for, and it was fun to
watch his performance.
All that said, "Tobruk" is still a pretty good movie. The question of
heroism and duty is answered quite well near the film's conclusion, as
each of the leads is forced into a situation they would rather not be
in, where they must put their lives at stake in order to accomplish
something important bigger than they are. Harker states, "We have few
perhaps our willingness to die for what believe is all
that matters." Craig comes to respect Bergman's religious ideals and
backs him up during the final battle sequence. And with that said
final battle sequence is, quite simply, incredibly well-filmed. The
Allied assault on the harbor guns is fantastic. There are dozens of
soldiers running about on the beach as a huge artillery installation is
blown to bits, and not the least part of it looks staged or faked.
Later, this scene is put to shame as some of the heroes take out the
entire fuel supply for Rommel with a tank. The fuel dump explodes in
grand fashion, with dozens of huge explosions and orange fireballs,
some of which must have been real. The visual effects are state-of-the
art, especially when one considers that this film was shot in 1966. (It
was nominated for Best Special Effects at the 1968 Oscars, but lost to
"Tobruk" is entertaining and a sufficient afternoon adventure story.
From start to finish, and it looks and sounds very authentic. Nothing
about this movie seems staged, and despite an average-quality script,
it's engaging and thought-provoking. I would suggest renting it at some
