Forced to play a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse in the chaos of war, an elite Army bomb squad unit must come together in a city where everyone is a potential enemy and every object could be a deadly bomb.
Set during World War II, a story seen through the innocent eyes of Bruno, the eight-year-old son of the commandant at a concentration camp, whose forbidden friendship with a Jewish boy on the other side of the camp fence has startling and unexpected consequences.
Zac Mattoon O'Brien,
Being a typical stereotypical Aussie, I am broadminded and satisfied with most films, be it Top Shelf, big Budget Block-busters or 'B' Grade beauties..... BUT, in this instance, I am going to be a complete hypocrite and severely knock this woeful movie. I do not care that Robert Pattinson is some kind of bubble-gum-toy-boy Twilight twit....that is inconsequential, I take each effort on it's merits. Julian Sands is a fine actor, no thespian, and I was surprised to find him accepting the outcome of this trash. Maybe the Director, his Screen Writer and such are aware of the tedious progress of this movie, but to us mere mortals...."what the heck is this plot all about, where is it going". Anyway, I've had my say, albeit probably a target of the 'Net Trolls, but I paid my hard-earned-cash to go see it and if I were more aggressive, I would have stormed back to the Ticket Office and requested a 'Refund'. I have NEVER criticised a film as I have here, so hopefully, this is the last.
