I found this film to be a bit slow and boring. There were a few good action sequences but it wasn't enough to keep me interested. The film seemed to lack a true focus. It was clear that the film was trying to be more than just an action film. The film was made by the director of the book 'Battlefield Earth' which has a similar story line. It was also interesting to see how this film was filmed and the direction was also different from the book. It was very clear that the director was trying to make the film as realistic as possible. It's obvious that the film is trying to be realistic because of the use of the handheld camera and the way that the film was shot. The film seems to be trying to be more of a documentary then a war film. Overall, I didn't like this film as much as I thought I would. It was still a good film though.

I was not sure how to feel about this movie, as I had only seen the trailer. After seeing it I was absolutely blown away. I thought it was very realistic, and well made. The cinematography was beautiful, and the direction was well done. I really liked the music and the score was perfect. I thought the actors did a good job, although the part that I liked the most was played by Josh Hutcherson. I thought he played the part of Francis Collins extremely well. The love story between him and Michelle Monaghan was good, although I didn't see Hugh Grant as the leader of the resistance, I think he would have been more effective. I thought the movie was very well made, and I was amazed to see that the American and British people actually looked the same. The acting was great, and the dialogue was really well written. I highly recommend this movie, and it is a must see for all movie fans.

We're in the age of the digital age where the smallest detail is seen through a prism of pixels. War films are no different. This film, however, is a very well done picture. A story about a time and place that was of such importance. War is a sad fact. I think this film captures the suffering and despair of a war in the most realistic manner possible. The film is shot well, the actors are good, and the music is right on point. The story is really good and I loved the way that the movie gives us insight into the way people were reacting to the events that were happening in the war. All in all, this film is very good. I recommend it to anyone who likes war films and wants to be involved in a story that is more realistic than the average film.

I saw this movie at the Toronto Film Festival last night. My thoughts were "huh?" Most of the audience (i.e. most of the movies people see at the festivals) is too young to remember World War II. I think that people who remember WWII are either too old to have actually experienced it, or too young to know what it was like. This movie, however, was fascinating. There were moments of beauty, such as the beautiful shots of Rome and the stunning scenery. But, also, there were some horrifying moments that made you think "is this really happening?" I thought that it was the movie that showed us what war is really like, with all the horrible things that happen. Not just seeing people getting shot in the head or other people being beheaded or executed. Also, the scenes of Hitler's concentration camps were truly sad and unforgettable. I also think that the acting was really good, though it was a bit difficult to tell that the actors were really old. The only thing that I really had a problem with was the subtitles. I'm not sure if they were written in English or French, but they really messed up a lot of the English words. For example, the first thing that I noticed was that the characters were speaking English with the French accent. Also, when Hitler came to power, the people in the theater were speaking German with the American accent. I think that the subtitles should have been written in English and not French, but I'm not sure how much it would have affected the movie. Overall, I thought this was a very interesting movie and I'm glad that I saw it. I don't think that I would have liked it the same way if it was written in English, but then again, if it was written in English, I wouldn't have liked it either.

This movie is a total action packed movie that it has everything. Action, emotion, and a great storyline. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone. If you like action movies, I would highly recommend this movie to you. I give it an 8 out of 10.

I went to see this film because I love the book of The First World War and it was recommended to me by a friend. My friend said that the book was very good, and she said that the film was so accurate. The only thing that she didn't like was the casting. I have seen people commenting about Mark Rylance and Judi Dench, so I went into this film knowing that I would hate it. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I was very surprised by the acting of all the actors. I think that the casting was good and Judi Dench was perfect for the role of Emma Peel. Mark Rylance and Tom Hardy were both very good in their roles, but I thought that they should have been better. I would recommend this film to anyone. It is a very good film. It shows how the First World War was, the German and British people's thoughts on the war, and the German soldiers' attitudes. I also liked the musical score and the scenery of the trenches.

This film tells the story of the first attack on the Reichstag in 1933. This film was directed by Alan Parker. The film is based on a book by one of the men who was in the room. There is also an audio book by the author, as well as several documentary and other films about the attack. This film is a very good film about the attack and the men who were in the room. The film is very well acted and the actors did a great job. They did a good job at portraying the men who were in the room. The film is well done. The film is divided into several chapters and each chapter has a different story to tell. The film is very interesting and I recommend this film to anyone who likes war films.

Tom Hanks makes a great war hero, but for the most part the movie plays out as if it is his own story. I would have liked it more if the focus was more on the relationship between him and Tony Scott. The action scenes are great, but a little to obvious. If the movie were longer it would have been more interesting, but you get the point. The only thing that I didn't like was the music, it was kind of bad.

As a historian, this film captured my attention. I saw it as a guide for me as a young college student, who never knew a war like that. I was not disappointed. This film is an accurate depiction of the war, as I have been able to get a much better understanding of the war than I was when I was in college. The film does a great job of telling the story of how the Allied forces got to their objective. The film was well done and the story was compelling. The acting was excellent, with Tom Hardy in the lead role. The music by Ennio Morricone is excellent. This film is well worth seeing.

This movie was fantastic. I've seen it twice in a row and can't wait to see it again. Tom Hardy was great. I just love his character in this movie. Tom Hardy is an actor who has been in a few movies, but his acting skills are really starting to shine through. The story is excellent, the cinematography is brilliant, and the action is great. This movie will be a great classic for years to come. If you haven't seen it yet, watch it! You won't be disappointed. The Oscars are a joke.

This film had so much going for it, which I liked very much. It was very well directed and well acted. However, the plot was very thin. I did not get what the fuss was about with the big speeches. There was very little actual action, which I did not really care for. I am sure that there are people who would like this film. The film is worth watching. I hope that the makers of this film make more films.

I liked the movie. The story was good, and it was done in a very nice way. I would give it a 9 out of 10, but I would give it an 8 out of 10 if there was more to it. But the fact that the Nazis could have made some good movies, would have made me give it a 9 out of 10, if there was more to it. They should have made more movies like this, instead of only a few movies, like this one. All in all, a very good movie, I would give it an 8 out of 10.

This movie is the best film I have seen since Forrest Gump, and I have seen a lot of movies. The acting was amazing. The story line is fantastic and is not predictable. It was great to see Tom Hanks and Harrison Ford in the same movie. I did not know that Tom Hanks and Harrison Ford would be in the same movie, but I think they did a great job. I love the fact that they were both in different movies. I love that Tom Hanks is not a hero, but a great American. The main reason I like this movie is that it showed that war is very serious and people are afraid of losing their family. This movie will make you think, and hopefully you will not like the movie and will hate the movie. This movie will make you feel good about the future and the good things that will come. It is a great movie and I highly recommend you see it.

I don't know if the "insurgents" are really that bad, but I really like the movie. The movie is very historical, very like the times. I like the story, it's realistic. It's not like the movies about "rebels", that's what I hated about the movie. The movie was entertaining, with action and a lot of political talk. If you are into historical movies, go see it.

A great movie with great actors, that is true to the war. I saw it in my teens and still remember it.

With only the last few days of the war for us to see, we have only two people in our history books - the Great Famine of 1921 and the recent tragedy of 9/11. For me, this movie, written and directed by George Clooney, is more than an action movie, but a "documentary" on the lives of the Irish, English and Americans who fought for this country. The movie is primarily based on the history of the Irish Civil War, a war fought between the British and the Irish nationalists. It was a war between the British Empire and the Irish nation. The Americans fought in it, the Irish fought with the British, and in the end, the Irish got what they wanted. The American and British soldiers did not go to fight the Irish because they were Irish. They went to fight a war against their own government. The movie shows the end of the war, but the war is not over. It is only the beginning of the end of the Irish Nation. The movie focuses on the life of an American serviceman, Sean (Matt Damon), who is about to return home to Ireland to be buried. When the war is over, he realizes that the British Empire, and the Irish nationalist Irish government have become too corrupt. He is given the job of protecting the tomb of the King of Ireland, and he is convinced to fight for the Irish cause. The movie is a good film, but it is very much more than an action movie. I think that this movie is about American patriotism, and the kind of love that we can only find in the United States. We love to fight for our country, and to fight for our families. This movie is about those who went to fight, and those who fought, and their families, and their country. I think that George Clooney did a great job with this movie, and I hope that everyone who watches it will enjoy it.

The story of the RAF's greatest air raid on London in the second world war is told with a strong emphasis on the actions of the crews and their love for their war. The portrayal of the RAF is very accurate. The film has good performances from all of the cast and the director, Sam Mendes, who is one of the most underrated directors in the industry. It is a well done film with a strong emphasis on the characters. It is not perfect, but it is definitely worth a watch. It is an excellent film.

First of all I would like to say that I was not expecting this movie to be good. I was expecting it to be some boring Hollywood fluff and probably I should have watched the trailer, but I was wrong. What a wonderful movie. This is not a movie for everyone but I think that if you have the opportunity to see it and you like a good movie this is it. This movie has everything that a movie should have: plot, action, emotion, music, etc. It is definitely not for the average moviegoer. So if you are a fan of War or a movie fan, go watch this movie. This movie is definitely a must see. Go out and see it in theaters if you can, if you can't go to a theater, I highly recommend you go see it on the big screen.

This is an excellent film about the Battle of Britain, and the ending of World War II. The film starts with the Battle of Britain, which is not just the battle itself, but the role that Britain played in the war. The British are under the domination of Nazi Germany, and have lost most of their colonies in Africa and Asia. The Allies do not have the manpower to defend the British Isles, and so the British decide to withdraw their troops. This decision is controversial, but eventually leads to the end of the war, and the final defeat of the Germans. The film is well-paced and the editing is very well done. It is a good example of what a film should be, because it is a documentary about the Battle of Britain, and the end of the war. There are many points that are discussed, and the movie was shot in the UK, and at least two of the major battles were filmed in London. The acting is very good, with strong performances from everyone involved. This is one of the best war films I have seen in a long time, and it is very well-made. My rating: 8/10.

A movie that deals with the events of WWII, and even more so the reasons that Hitler decided to do what he did, is a tough sell. But this movie does the job, and I can't really say much about it without giving away the ending. I liked it because it was different from the typical Hollywood fare. I didn't feel that this movie was trying to tell me what it was all about, which I don't think is the intent of it. I also liked that the movie was not just a "good" movie. I think that it is a movie worth seeing. It is about the war and what it brought about, but I think it is also a movie worth hearing about. The way it was told, the story, the way the movie was filmed, the music, all worked together to make this a very enjoyable movie. I give this movie 8/10.
