Age of Heroes is a 2011 war drama film set in World War II, directed by Adrian Vitoria and starring Sean Bean, Danny Dyer, and Aksel Hennie. The film follows a team of British and Norwegian commandos as they embark on a top-secret mission to sabotage a Nazi factory producing essential fuel for their war effort. The film's story is loosely based on the true events of Operation Grouse, a mission undertaken by the Special Operations Executive (SOE) during World War II. The movie begins with Captain Jones (Bean) leading a team of commandos on a reconnaissance mission to Norway. Jones is ordered to assemble a team of skilled men to take on a dangerous mission to destroy the Nazi factory.

The team consists of Norwegian resistance fighters, Lieutenant Jensen (Hennie) and Private Rasmussen (Izabella Miko), and British soldiers, Corporal Bob Rains (Dyer), Private Spike (John Dagleish), and Private Frankie (Lee Ross). Although the group is initially divided, they soon learn to work together and become a cohesive unit.

Their mission is to parachute into Nazi-occupied Norway and make their way to the factory, where they will destroy the heavy water plant that is essential for the Nazi's atomic bomb program. Along the way, they must evade detection by the Germans and navigate through the harsh Norwegian wilderness.

As they progress towards their objective, the group faces several challenges, such as battling the freezing temperatures, avoiding German patrols, and dealing with enemy collaborators. They also encounter a local Norwegian woman, Hilde (Maud Angelica Behn), who is sympathetic to their cause and helps them along the way.

The group finally reaches their target and after a series of intense and action-packed sequences, they successfully destroy the plant. However, the mission comes at a heavy cost, and the group must fight their way out of Norway and back to England.

Age of Heroes is a well-made war drama that is both exciting and emotional. The film does an excellent job of portraying the harsh realities of wartime and the bravery of the men and women who fought for their country. The cinematography is stunning, and the Norwegian wilderness is beautifully captured on the screen.

The film's cast delivers some powerful performances, with Sean Bean's portrayal of Captain Jones being a standout. Bean brings his trademark intensity to the role and effectively conveys the leader's determination and honor. Aksel Hennie shines as Lieutenant Jensen, a conflicted soldier who must juggle his loyalty to his country and his conscience. Danny Dyer delivers an excellent performance as Corporal Rains, a cocky and brash soldier with a heart of gold.

The movie's action sequences are well-staged and exciting, with some thrilling moments of suspense and tension. The film's soundtrack is also noteworthy, with a stirring score that perfectly captures the film's mood.

In conclusion, Age of Heroes is an excellent war drama that effectively conveys the bravery and sacrifice of the soldiers who fought in World War II. The film's impressive cast, breathtaking cinematography, and pulse-pounding action sequences make it a must-watch for fans of war movies.
