Ten Seconds to Hell

Film, Thrillers

Time Out says

Fair to middling Aldrich, which would pack more punch if the characterisation had a little more oomph. The storyline certainly grabs at the nerve ends: six German bomb disposal experts return from a British PoW camp to post-war Berlin, where they agree to pool their monthly pay packets in a kitty to be offered to the last survivor from their number. Palance and Chandler are left to sweat it out over unexploded devices and the similarly potent presence of love interest Carol. Ernest Laszlo's crisp monochrome camerawork makes the German capital look grim indeed.
