Goofs

During the scene with the gun fight at the farmhouse, you'll notice that at one moment, the biggest Russian with the machine gun is holding an MG34, which he had had since he landed, and the next moment, apparently only when he is shooting, it is an MG42. It continues to switch back and forth from an MG34 (round barrel with holes in it) to an MG42 (larger rectangular barrel with slits in the side). At one point, you can see a curved cartridge hanging from the bottom of the MG42, a feature not found on such weapons. See more »

Don't waste your time.
19 January 2006 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

I'm struggling to see if there is any justification to having spent the money to rent and watch this. I can't find any unless it's to stop others from falling victim as I did. Be forewarned. I can't believe Ron Perlman has sunk this low. I wish IMDb didn't have the ten line minimum, because now I'm spending even more time trying to warn you, dear reader, not to do what I have done. As I look back on my life, I'll remember with regret the evening I wasted on this film. If, by these words, I can help one person -- just one person -- avoid this experience, I'll earn some atonement and find peace. Perhaps I can convince Blockbuster to return my money or even pay me compensation, but I can't get back my time.
