Storyline

After surviving a massacre in Malmedy, a location behind the German army in Europe, four American soldiers with only one weapon rescue the British pilot Oberon Winley (Kirby Heyborn) in a tree and they move together, trying to reach the allied forces and save a great number of allied soldiers from a German attack with the information got by Winley in his flight. While marching, each soldier discloses inner secrets to the rest of the group. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

At the end of the film we see a German soldier fire a Panzerfaust (Anti-tank weapon) at a tent. The "bomb" launches like a rocket in a straight line and blows the tent to smithereens. This would not happen. The Panzerfaust is not a rocket launcher, it is effectively a big gun. There is a charge in the tube which explodes and "Lobs" the charge towards its target. It does not fly under its own power and certainly does not travel in a straight line. The shaped charge is encased in metal and the front needs to deform to set off the detonator. This would require striking a hard target such as a tank. If a panzerfaust was fired at a tent it would merely bounce off. See more »

Outstanding in every sense
17 February 2005 | by (MD, United States) – See all my reviews

My wife and I go out to see a movie every Friday night. Some nights, I'll tell you, the Picken's Is Slim, as they were when we saw this film about six months ago (if memory serves). I'd never heard of it. She didn't want to see any more war films since that miserable, over-hyped "Pearl Harbor" with the lame love story thrown into the mix. (Cuba Gooding was the only good part in the movie, and, shock! His character's part really happened, too! Hollywood take note!) To tell you the truth, we nearly went to rent something to watch at home, but as we left, we heard a guy in line talking excitedly about how he'd seen it three times, and loved it. What the heck. We got back in line. Their popcorn is better than ours. We went in, not expecting much of anything.

I'll tell you, we were blown away. I came on this site tonight because I've been meaning to write and tell everybody to go see this little film that only ran a week in our local theater. (Buy the DVD!) I have read every comment on this site, and have to LOL at the comments about Mormons. What Mormons? I never even knew it was Mormons until I read it tonight on this site! And so what? It happened to a Mormon guy. It was his story. You expect Catholics to tell it? The other complaints about the story being predictable...what? It sure got us! It was a true story. Don't you get it? If it's true, you can't change what really happened--and what happened was humanity showing it's face. It was right winning out over allegiance.

I'm looking forward to the DVD coming out. I'm getting it and showing it to all my friends. This is film-making the way it should be done. We want to see it more of it.
