Some of the posters on this have it right: this is for the most part a pretty routine dealing with the ordeals of a group of British POW's in a German POW camp. Truth be told, the movie wouldn't have much credibility if it broke new ground on this point because, truth be known, the ordeals of POW's is a matter for history, and only can be reflected in more or less accurate ways in film.
For my part however, I really did enjoy the film. There are of course some moments of unimaginable cruelty, as there always seems to be in times of war- however by and large, the performances were sharp, and the movie while its not exactly light material, was done in earnest and with good intent.
Oh, and I have to say, James D'Arcy is one fine looking lad, and seeing him in a sheepskin flight jacket will always be welcome with me!
