Great movie done without big box office budget
26 August 2012 | by cstevansSee all my reviews

Yes there are flaws in this film, but all movies have their flaws. The ones in this particular movie are very minute. In fact there is no point in pointing them out. I'm a huge fan of World War II movies when done right. In fact my template to compare is the Band of Brothers series. In my opinion Band of Brothers is a ten and so if you see my rating of an eight then you should see yourself enjoying this film. What is also great is after the credits the film makers actually apologize for their mistakes and give reasons why. I felt they didn't need to, but it just strengthened my enjoyment of the film that much further. If you have enjoyed films such as Tora,Tora,Tora, Midway, The Battle of Britain, etc. Then you should not have any problem sitting through this film.
