What a disaster!
17 October 2006 | by (Arizona, USA) – See all my reviews

In this film, the names are wrong, the historical facts are wrong, the dates are wrong, the military uniforms are wrong, the medals are wrong, the costumes are wrong, the flags are wrong, the maps are wrong, the props are wrong, the cars are wrong, the locations are wrong... the casting is very poor, with a collection of accents that can only be described as a mockery... this film is simply a disaster... It is an insult to anyone who knows the meaning of the word HISTORY.

If this film proves anything, it surely proves that no research was ever made. For a dramatized history movie, for TV or big screen, the writer and the director should do a bit of homework before they make fools of themselves and of the historical personalities they are presenting.
