Strong story, and great acting by Tom Felton
23 November 2014 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie at a Special Screening in New Orleans at the WWII Museum and I highly recommend it. It's an incredible true story honestly told and very well acted. As someone with family in the military who loves true stories about American history, this one hit all the right notes for me.

Historical films can feel a bit stiff or over dramatized, but this hit the sweet spot of good acting and an engaging story.

It was a trip seeing Tom Felton is something other than Harry Potter, but once you get over the initial double take, you realize he is a fine actor who has a bright future ahead of him.
