At first I thought "oh no, terrible acting" but hang in there, it gets better. Being a true story, which I was unaware of, made this a movie worth watching. Don't expect the standard of "Saving Private Ryan" and you won't be disappointed.
Feels too much like a tele movie, possibly because it is, too much feelings and love story etc by men in harsh conditions who would have more of just 'present condition' on their minds ... if you like a glossed over flag waving war story then you might enjoy this. Although to be fair it was still watchable if you didnt think too hard about the content ...
I love to watch wartime movies. This one is the best I've seen in recent times. Part of history I wasn't aware of. Highly recommend this one to everyone.
When this movie started it appeared familiar - it may have been a tv mini series some time ago. Anyway it is still a good war movie - worth a look
Great movie. Acting was very true to life and the story quite remarkable.
It isn't saving private ryan but still not a bad showing, worth a look.
Quite enjoyable. I thought it was well done. I can't think of anything to complain about. The special effects and historical sets looked authentic.
Not bad, a bit slow in parts and I could have done without the love interest, but it's worth watching.
crap film - poorly acted. I didn't really care much for the characters. It's actually a good true story that wasn't done justice.
Did something wrong and it didn't work. This was worth seeing, a bit rough for those with not so strong stomachs but the storyline was very good and worth seeing.
Actually this was quite good, and similar in some ways to Saving Private Ryan.
It is definitely worth the look.
a gripping, well acted war movie with a very powerful human element.
Disappointing war film based on an extraordinary event. Cliched from beginning to end and even the actual raid itself proceeds without much tension.
A depressing film in that it was based on fact and also the horrific things things that so many people had to endure. The incredible bravery of these people was truly inspiring though I doubt I could have done it. Well made and acted and well worth a look.
Comparing this to "Saving Private Ryan" is comparing a mini to a lamborgini yes they both are cars and yes they will both get you to the same place but like the mini this movie was a slow ride to the end with not much thrills until the last few minutes. There is much better out there, eg the Ultra fast and slick "Saving Private Lambo"
this dvd has a fault, it stopped working about half way through!
i was expecting alot more from this one , we found it a little boring
It's billed as an epic in the vein of Saving Private Ryan. Never quite reaches those heights. Bit long!!!!
Great movie, bit hard to understand at the beginning but keep watching.
good film, historic content, alittle long though.
saving pribate ryan revisited, with no tom hanks .
still worth a good saturday night it , if you like war movies , you'll like this :)
This is a good war movie...interesting and entertaining. Hire it if u like the occasional war movie. A bit too pro USA propaganda, but tells of a little known rescue during the second world war. Good acting and script.
Too much 'Hollywoodfied' (we re the greatest again) Knowing the true facts of this raid its a bit farcical
good war drama, excellent story line
Throughly enjoyed the movie.Thought it was as good or even better than Saving Pte Ryan. Highly recommended
In the tradition of Zulu - aka heroic events as a result of massive disaster by high command - quite well done but somewhat long winded in parts. Worth a watch though
