After watching director Edward Zwick's previous movies: The Last Samurai and Blood Diamond, I'm sure you will understand that I had quite a lot of hope for this movie... and I'm pleased to announce that I was not in the slightest bit disappointed!

Historical Take

There's certainly loads of history behind this movie, based upon a true story, and I feel like I've learned a bit more about WW2 history. Though I am certainly no historian, so I can't really tell you how accurately the events are portrayed in this movie!

Storyline: 5 Stars

Wow, it's certainly a wonderful story: Bravery, love, hate, and a defiance to the bitter end... seriously you have to watch it to understand what I mean! Take in on my recommendation!

Graphics: 3 Stars

The visuals are just perfectly suited to the type of movie... nothing overboard, though I wasn't too keen on a few of the overall coloring schemes, though I'm sure we will be able to overlook that!

Acting: 3 Stars

Daniel Craig played his part really well, and all the supporting cast seem to fit in seemlessly... No outstanding performances though...

Emotions: 4 Stars

You can really connect to this story, beutifully told. The fact that it's based upon a true story certainly makes it much more emtional, as we know that those things actually did happen.


Excellent story told the way that only Zwick can. I loved the movie and will certainly recommend it to all my readers here!
