Some men are born to be heroes
Before sitting down to watch this movie, take
in this most important fact. The only person in this movie who actually
attempts to speak with anything other than their own accent is Bob
Hoskins. This fact alone could save you torment. This movie is about
World War II and how the Russians basically whittled down the Krouts (He
Clicked his heels, A fine German tradition. “This is for Buzz”).
With no Russian accents, and Englishmen playing them we have a fairly
entertaining flick. The acting and storyline move along pretty well and
the war and combat scenes are filmed exceptionally. The river scene at
the beginning moments of the movie are probably the best however seeing
them tugs a bit at the ideology of war. However Ed Harris’s character
I could not decide if he was under acted, or if underwrote.
