The character of Kliest is only present as a telephone voice, spoken by the German actor Christian Brückner. Similarly, the character of the OSS Commander is only heard as a voice on the radio, played by Harvey Keitel. Christian Brückner provided the German dubbing voice for Harvey Keitel in Pulp Fiction (1994). See more »
After Sgt. Donowitz ("The Bear Jew") kills the German soldier with the bat, he struts about shouting a "play-by-play" account of his action. During this, he uses the phrase "Donowitz goes yard!", meaning hitting a home run. The term "goes yard" was not used for a home run until the 1990s. See more »
The movie is pointless. My opinion is that... actually Im not even sure if I can come up with at least 10 lines that IMDb requires me to produce. so I will try to come up with something to justify my 15 dollar movie ticket. I know that you cannot expect historical accuracy from the entertainment industry but this movie just makes no sense to me. There are no action packed sequences. No historical accuracy. some violence? If you liked the movie for its violence, then ...well then this movie is in your category. You must've liked the Hostel and Hostel2 too.:)
I noticed most critics in major News outlets gave it 5 stars and seems most people bought it. I just didn't get it, I guess thats why I'm not a critic:)
One good thing about the movie is its linguistic scope. Not uncommon for Tarantino. Very good set of actors. Christofer Waltz will finally be recognized after 20 years of acting in Europe..!;)
