...highest rating, best film Nolan has made, best movie so far this year, etc.
One said it put you right in the middle of what is going on.
Of course, the critics can't determine if you will like it.
WWII films don't interest me much - I may see it on video.
Billy and Jeff, I respect your reviews and am also a big fan of WW2 movies. I was going to go to the theater but will wait for the DVD now.
Some movies like the Dukes Operation Pacific just get me going. With that movie the music soundtrack just wants you to haul up the red, white, and blue. Sounds like this one is a snore.
As far as having a good story with a surprisingly great ending I think the Big Red One is number 1. As far as realism I would say Fury, even over Private Ryan...Mark Korda
You will be disappointed. It seems that Nolan stitched together a series of concurrent personal interest stories instead of showing us the broad sweeps of attempted annihilation.
Example: The air attacks were represented by just a few Stuka's at a time and singular He-111's attacking ships--as if the Luftwaffe wasn't up for the job. The personal conflict outweighed the battle at hand which made it a non-war war movie for me.
