Goofs

During the scene with the gun fight at the farmhouse, you'll notice that at one moment, the biggest Russian with the machine gun is holding an MG34, which he had had since he landed, and the next moment, apparently only when he is shooting, it is an MG42. It continues to switch back and forth from an MG34 (round barrel with holes in it) to an MG42 (larger rectangular barrel with slits in the side). At one point, you can see a curved cartridge hanging from the bottom of the MG42, a feature not found on such weapons. See more »

I wish I had my two hours back
15 June 2008 | by kale-woodsSee all my reviews

What a disappointment of a movie. I love a good war movie because of the valor, the bravery, the action, the love of country and dedication to a cause greater than one's self. Unfortunately, this movie was more like a watching military version of "The Great Race" where people are scurrying all over the world for uncertain reasons and competing in disjointed activities. The general story line has potential, but frankly, a group of ten-year old boys playing Army in the backyard could have come up with a more realistic plot and better consistency across scenes.

Another contributor to this board mentioned the lack of special effects, like outtakes or deleted scenes. The absence of those is a blessing to the viewer, in my mind. The scenes that made it to the movie were so tepid and predictable that I can't imagine what those on the cutting room floor must be like.

Save your time and your money. Watch "Band of Brothers", "Saving Private Ryan", or any number of other war movies that employ props and dialog consistent the era, credible story lines, and plots that don't require the viewer to keep telling themselves that the movie will surely be getting better any minute now.
