In 1942, men from across the USA are in Camp Toccoa, Georgia to undergo paratrooper training. For the men of 'E' Easy Company the training is particularly difficult as a result of their demanding commander, Captain Herbert Sobel. He drives them incessantly to excel, canceling their weekend passes on a whim. His favorite chore is to have the men undertake a run up a hill known as Currahee. While the men are fit and ready for battle, thanks to Sobel, he has unfortunately shown himself to be a weak tactical commander. Once in England, and knowing they will soon be invading the Continent, the sergeants stage a rebellion. Sobel's excesses come to an end when Lt. Dick Winters requests a court martial rather than accept punishment for one of Sobel's lame charges. Written by garykmcd

24 July 2017 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

After watching forty-eight episodes of "Combat!" released on DVD in Brazil, the first episode of "Band of Brothers" seems to be inspired in Stanley Kubrick's first half of "Full Metal Jacket" and part of "Combat! - A Day in June".

So far, "Combat!" gives the sensation of a black and white documentary while the first episode of "Band of War" is too aseptic and clean, even considering that the soldiers are still not engaged in combats. In addition, there are several one-dimension characters without any development. Let's see the sequence to have a better view of this awarded mini-series. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Currahee"
