What disappointed you about The Tunnel Rats?

The narration is all over the place,hard to follow the storyline as in its description.

Didn't make it there yet.

Would you be willing to try another one of Paul Thornley’s performances?


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Tunnel Rats?
