Although Wardaddy wears the rank insignia of a Staff Sergeant (three stripes and a rocker) on his jacket, his veteran crewmen refer to him as "Top" several times. "Top" is short for "Top Kick," a nickname for First Sergeant (three stripes, three rockers, and a diamond in the middle), several ranks above Staff Sergeant. See more »
Overall, a poor film. There were some good action scenes. The plot lacked credibility in a big way; the acting was ham-fisted a lot of the time and the "conversion" of the "typing clerk" to "bloodthirsty warrior" was a bridge too far for me. The action scene where the tanks were "jousting" with the German Tiger tank was excellent and one of the highlights of the film for me. However the scene where he was spared by a member of a crack SS squadron beggared belief and was an poor attempt a counterpoint to the scene where he was forced to shoot the unarmed German soldier. It's hard the believe that Brad Pitt is so hard-up for money that he would lend himself to such average films. Currently there are much better films out there.
