Extremely Emotional Recount of World War II, 4 August 2013
Author: daisybeagle09 from Jacksonville, FL

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I had the pleasure of viewing this film at the World War II Museum in New Orleans this past July. I wasn't sure what to expect with the 4D movie experience but was totally blown away with the film, actors, sounds, explosions, scents and everything else that happens in the theater during the performance.

Being too young to have anyone in my immediate family serve in WWII, this was an eye-opening experience that sort of combined Hollywood with real-life to give you the experience of being there.

It is too bad this is not a traveling museum exhibit so people all over (especially ones 50 & younger)could experience this. I wish that it was closer to Florida so that I could take students to view this exhibit and give them the experience of "witnessing" WWII.
