No action packed Hollywood but solid war flick with great production value
One by one the Eastern European movies are drawing line with Hollywood, especially in the badly neglected production value department. The best example, together with a couple of solid Hungarian and Polish attempts, are probably Night Watch, Day Watch or The 9th Company from Russia. The fourth one to catch up is the once great Czech cinematography. Tobruk is certainly no Private Ryan or Pearl Harbour, neither budget-wise nor fun-wise, but it sure looks and feels damn good, especially the music and sounds (divx is a poor option, must see in decent Dolby movie theatre!). It's probably not the best choice for pure action flick lovers and blockbuster addicts, Tobruk is too lengthy, austere and broody for that, more in the The Thin Red Line style or - perhaps more fittingly - All Quiet on the Western Front. But for real war movie lovers it makes it up with some really mean and gory scenes, 0% cheesiness and uncompromising WWII North Africa authenticity - and you can never get enough of those, am I right? :)
