Goofs

Gliders and single and twin-engined Allied aircraft participating in the Normandy invasion were marked with invasion or "Overlord" stripes, which were 3 white and 2 black alternating stripes on the wings and rear fuselage. The stripes on the fuselage were vertical with the center white stripe aligned with the white star on national insignia of the US aircraft. In this movie, the C-47 transports had their fuselage stripes with the rearward black stripe aligned with the star. See more »

Terrible movie about such an important moment in history
22 April 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I just finished watching this movie (well actually not as I stopped watching after 50 minutes) but in my opinion, this was one of the worst WW2 movies I have seen recently (and I have seen a lot as I have a vested interest in WW2).

Regardless whether the movie was shot on a low budget, a movie that covers such an important moment in history should just not have been shot.

I will not bother the reader to write down an endless list (because it is really endless) of complains and why I gave this movie just 1 out 10. If you have nothing to do and you would like to waste 1,5 hours of your time, I would advise you to watch this movie. If not, you better choice another movie.
