Exactly the movie you think it is, but not the movie you want it to be.
Like the great film, it's made with a great deal of visible affection both in front of and behind the camera.
One of the worst ways to make a cult movie is to set out to make a cult movie.
The film's masterful storytelling did its job. The message was clear. No need to overdo.
Watched this series years ago. Words can't describe how good this is.
Then, watch this one only. I know the Normandy area perfectly. When I see how the 101 and the others, of course, did what those children did, and this representation of how real fear is (not to be confused with cowardice) (I left wondering, could we bring the spirit of those kids back to countries like Venezuela? Here cowards of both sides destroyed the country without shooting at anything). (I can see it every day for the benefit of my job. There are priceless management lessons that we can't ignore today)
An amazing depiction of real experiences that happened to some of the men who saved the world from evil. It really shows you first hand what it was like to go through some of the worst stages of the worst war in history. These men and men like them in the Soviet union, Great Britain and all the other allied nations, are the very reason we can all live our lives in freedom and peace. This masterpiece is an honorable salute to their heroism.
Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Tom Hardy didn't become stars overnight. They started out in small roles like these and worked their way up.
