well constructed war film

I saw him with my grandfather and all veterans at the time.

you clearly saw that they were impressed by the gross truth (logical)

sometimes i tend to care about what the movie critics think of veronica magazine.

they didn't use the hylaric word "joke" at all, haha a joke true

even Albert Verlinde van would say, .. well that's very simple.

what do you want action like rambo.?

well worth it, well cast, and luckily it gives a lot of reliable MovieMeter

This movie gets a solid 3 stars, and rightly so.

Beautiful war film with more than 2 hours of tension and humanity. The only downside is that the film progresses rather slowly. But as a true story, this may well be the case in reality. Moreover, because of the little information, the organization was optimally necessary.

For lovers of war films, this film must be top notch. I have already enjoyed it. Perhaps the glorification of the Americans is a bit thick. But they were also allowed to have it in this story worked out in almost detail.

Almost a 5 movie for me.

wow. Disappointment say. Subject has all the ingredients to deliver a captivating film, but it all but fails. You just can't get in. The characters are flat, one-dimensional, not well introduced and highlighted, stupid romantic plot and no attractive pictures. Only the last half hour is actually manageable.
