Tony McVane’s and his crew are captured. Therefore, he has a chance to talk with the crew captured earlier. McVane then leads a Bondian-like breakout by smashing the door with a large pole (where was that pole before?).
This is an interesting part of the film. There is a huge James Bond-type shoot-out. A lot of guys get shot down with machine guns, pistols, and more. But we never feel McVane is going to get killed.
Just as often happens in Bond movies, his team got the better of a large crew with just a few guys. But it wasn’t over yet. And of course, the bad guys had black uniforms and the good guys white. After all, this is a Black and White film.
