Storyline Heading
An unlikely World War II platoon is tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys - seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 -- possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind's greatest achievements.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Drama - Despite the cast filled with award-nominated and -winning acting heavyweights, this all-star WWII film based on a true story is very light and breezy in tone, not to mention there's not a lot in the way of war action. That said, there is some language and violence that make the film too strong for young children, not to mention that there is nonstop cigarette smoking.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average This is not a terrible movie. It's just not consistently good enough to get excited about.

USA Today Full Review
Average Despite its intrinsically fascinating subject matter and winning cast, The Monuments Men is no treasure.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Above Average 'The Monuments Men' drives that startling truth home, imperfectly but with chilling clarity.

NY Post Full Review
Good Most important, it's a heartfelt tribute to men who gave up comfortable lives and careers to do what they had to do for posterity under incredibly difficult and dangerous circumstances.
