Trivia

When the company escapes from the nuclear facility in Stuttgart they shoot at the German soldiers. One, being hit, is falling from a pipeline and screaming the "Wilhelm Scream". See more »

Goofs

When escaping from the nuclear facility the company exits a warehouse. In one shot a door sign is visible, saying: "WACHE Warnung Schieben ohne Vorwarnung!" which means: "Guard - Shooting without premonition". But the film crew misspelled the German word "schießen" (shooting) and used a "b" instead of the German special character "ß". See more »

Could have been much better with simple Director changes
15 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

On viewing this film I was excited by the cast. As a fan of both Saving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers seeing cast members from both made me giddy with anticipation on watching the film.

All in all the film story is quite good - I liked it. The acting is fine on most parts as you would expect from the cast - lets face it, several of the cast crew are more than qualified to fulfil their roles.

I cannot believe the annoyance allowed to be taken over by this film by the dull and out of place sound effects and music - music being my main gripe. What on earth was the sound production crew doing? If you watch any good war film dating back to the 40's the music is not the bug of any film, until I saw this. There was absolutely no need for the music over the scenes, it made the film feel cheap (OK it is low budget) where no music would had made it feel realistic. The sounds of tank movements, back ground noise, shots, explosions would have made this film feel 200 times better rather than the music. Why? The sound effects ruin the picture and atmosphere.

In general, the effects on video are OK. If there was a way to improve this picture just leave the voices in, delete pretty much all music and replace with sound effects. Score would then be an 8/10 (for a low budget film).

I am at a loss why the hell the director commissioned the music.

This could probably be sorted with someone with skill re-recording the sound. It takes away "the edge".
