Basic WWII film that loosely follows a character called Deacon through his journey to meet up with his Battalion.
20 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

When I watched the first Saints and Soldiers I was impressed, it was better than most WWII films containing some good actions sequences and a story that successfully touched on the implications of war on people.

Naturally when I saw Saints and Soldiers Airborne Creed I was hoping it would live up to or exceed the first film. I have been left disappointed though. A positive I will give to the film is that for a low budget movie, it is not noticeable reflecting the good work of the director and so forth.

I found the plot all but absent though, the only constant throughout the film is the character of Deacon but even then the "story" strays away from him in a failed effort to try and shed some light on other characters. The film just felt like a sequence of events that built up to nothing, no lessons to be learned etc. When the credits rolled I literally went "is that it?" I'm not a man who needs a nice clear ending but I do think if someone tells a story I should come away having learned something, Saints and Soldiers failed to that for me.

I think the lesson of the movie was meant to be the stereotypical one of all soldiers being normal human beings and the only difference between enemy and ally is a uniform. However the opening scene took away from this somewhat, and certain lines about Nazi's also dehumanized the film which proved counter-productive to the lesson I assume the film was trying to tell me.

I though the acting was hit and miss in the film as well, I found it really unimpressive during the first half of the film but the second half was better and the performances given by the actors were more emotional and compelling. I thought the guy who played Deacon was good in the first Saints and Soldiers but then again he didn't say much, in this one he is more of a character but sometimes his delivery of lines seem a bit flat.

I don't really like being a negative reviewer especially for a low budget film that in terms of cinematography was done very nicely. However the story was a huge let down and the acting a little bit bland at times. I bought the DVD for £1.99 and on reflection that was probably a good price to pay, any higher than £3-4 and I would feel as if the film hadn't been worth watching.
