Overall: I love war films. There’s something gripping about the situations, the action and the politics all wrapped into one. I find the WWII very intriguing, so this film was spectacular. First of all, it has a superb cast. Even if you don’t like one or two of the actors, it doesn’t really take away from the film itself. Second, if you’re a war film fanatic like me, you’ll love this. It has a gripping plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Third, there’s enough humor, hope and action to permit an acceptably balanced war film. Well done.
