So disappointing! I agree the acting was very poor, the dialogue mind numbingly stupid at times. And this is a WAR movie and the characters barely looked grimy! The worst of this lack of realism and proof that women in Hollywood films are still rarely anything more than eye candy was evidenced by the scene where the woman playing the daughter of the atomic scientist leaned out of this jeep window to shoot at the Nazis...with perfect curls and lipstick! At best this was insulting and pathetic. At worst, well, this is a family library, so I will refrain.

Didn't think I could be this disappointed in a WW2 movie !
... because I'm really schoolboy 'easy' for this genre.

The Bulgarian production values for weapons and costuming were spot on.

Which made all the failures of this unrealistic turkey even more of a let down.

That it featured Neal McDonough led me to expect better, but he had only a bit part.

Bad acting, stupid story, unbelievable action, inane dialogue. Had to stop the movie halfway to spare my brain.

Unrealistic story mixed in with every World War II cliche you can think of. If I was 10 years old again I'd love it. How do these movies get made these days?

There are probably enough good true stories without resorting to just making things up. Fairly high on the cheesy scale too.

Almost didn't make it through the movie. Low budget effort, horrible acting except for Vinny Jones (playing what he plays best, a brawler), utterly unbelievable action scenes shot in a stictly old Hollywood style. Veterans of any war/conflict best avoid for fear of dieing from laughter.

Very good, considering this was a low budget film. Been a while since I've seen a decent patriotic war movie. :)
