Unfortunately any story this epic has to be scaled down, say to about 1/6 size. That's right -- this is the UK's answer to ''TeamAmericaWorldPolice''. Your Mileage May Vary over whether it matches that movie for laughs, but it has its moments particularly if you're a fan of British UsefulNotes/WorldWarII movies. Or if you're Scottish.
