The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
|As I predicted, these are some mixed opinions and the majority are towards the low end. When you see such a low percentage of "Fantastic" opinions and a high percentage of "Very Good" and "Good/Avg." opinions it tells you that people enjoyed the movie, but certainly didn't love it. Most however indicated that they would recommend it to friends. This includes most of those giving the somewhat low opinions, so they didn't think the movie was too bad.|
If after reading the detailed opinions this sounds like a movie you might enjoy, by all means SEE IT! I'm confident that you will enjoy it, at least to some degree, and you may really enjoy it, as some did.
Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
First, let me say, THIS IS NOT A WAR MOVIE! There are only a few war scenes. Most of the movie takes place in a prison camp and deals with racial issues. It's a slow paced drama with lots of dialog that some may find boring. I thought most of the movie was just ok, but fortunately the ending was good and helped make it a movie worth seeing. However, it's not a movie that I can highly recommend. I predict it will receive very mixed opinions with most of them being on the low side.
If your taste in movies runs close to that of critics, you probably have the best chance of enjoying this movie, since most critics gave it good reviews.
Fourth generation military Col. William McNamara (Bruce Willis) is imprisoned in a German POW camp. Still, as the camp's highest-ranking American officer, he commands his fellow inmates, keeping a sense of honor alive in a place where honor is easy to destroy, all under the dangerous, ever-watchful eye of German Col. Werner Visser (Marcel lures). Never relinquishing his duty as a soldier, McNamara is silently planning, waiting for his moment to strike back at the enemy.|
A murder in the camp gives him the chance to set a risky plan in motion. With a court martial to keep Visser and the German guards distracted, McNamara orchestrates a cunning scheme to escape and destroy a nearby munitions plant, enlisting the unwitting help of young Lt. Tommy Hart (Colin Farrell). Together with his men, McNamara uses a hero's resolve to carry out his mission, ultimately forced to weigh the value of his life against the good of his men and his country.
