Age of Heroes follows the exploits of Corporal Rains (Danny Dyer) as he is inducted into the newly formed 30 Commando unit in World War II. Rains and the rest of the platoon are put through intensive training under the watchful eye of Major Jones (Sean Bean), where their skills and endurance are pushed to the limit as they prepare for their first highly classified and dangerous mission: to parachute into occupied Norway and capture deadly new radar technology from the Germans which could change the outcome of the war.
The newly formed band of brothers are joined in their task by local insurgent Steinar (Aksel Hennie) and beautiful spy Jensen (Izabella Miko). All their lethal commando skills are put to the test as they attempt to rescue Norwegian villagers, escape fierce gun battles and attain the radar technology from Nazi commander Teichman (Eric Madsen). Their plan is thrown into crisis when their pick-up is delayed and they must fight their way to the border of Sweden. With the Nazis desperate to hunt them down and stop them, the commandos realise how important their mission is to the war effort, as the fate of the Allies’ advance into Europe rests in their hands. After a long trek in the snow the commandos try to re supply by exploring a farm which unfortunately is shown to be empty. To make things worse the Germans catch up with them at the farm with one of the commandos captured alive during an earlier fire fight. The Germans ask for their surrender in exchange for the life of their captured friend as well as their own. However the commandos refuse to surrender and choose to fight to the end and open fire on the Germans and this begins an intense fire fight. The spy Jensen and the liaison are ordered to rush to Swedish border while the rest of the commandos provide cover for them to escape. Eventually Major Jones realizes that there are too many of them and they do not have enough ammo to hold out much longer. So he orders commandos Rains and Steinar to run for the border while Major Jones along with fellow commando Mackenzie stay to cover them however they are not seen again after been shown continually firing and suppressing the Germans it is presumed that they are overrun and killed or taken captive. The Germans catch up to Rains and Steiner retreating and Steinar is shot and killed. With no ammo, Rains prepares to use his knife to kill himself so the Germans cannot torture the truth out of him. However before he does Jensen and the liaison return and kill enough of the pursuing Germans to allow the three of them to escape. Eventually after eluding the Germans they make it to Sweden having achieved their objective though it cost the lives of five commandos. The last scene shows the two surviving team members and Jensen heading down a hill into Sweden.
