Just another WWII/evilness/ holocaust yawner. You see one Schindler's List, you seen 'em all. Chastain added nothing appealing to the flick. Can you tell I was dragged screaming and kicking to this load of tripe? Gore for the sake of gore. animal research just another term for animal torture.. Perhaps some clubbing of baby seals would have helped. Many will be PC and praise this move. Sadly, I wished I had stayed home and watched some film noir on TCM on demand. In summary, save some coin or try another film at the very least. It reeked.
