Just seconds into the film, a German MG-42 machine gun is shown firing on British soldiers. While in reality the MG-42 fired between 900-1500 rounds per minute, the sound effects indicate a much slower rate of fire, less than half of the true rate. See more »
The Difficulties of War and the Friendship That Carried Them Through
I LOVE this film on so many levels. I'm not one for action films if the storyline doesn't deliver, but this is one of those action films with a meaning, where the story doesn't just draw you in, but gives you goosebumps at the same time! The film gives a gritty perspective of what it might have been like to fight a war like this. It deals with the harsh realities, but also the humour that kept spirits up in these times, and I was hooked all the way. I was completely drawn in to the close friendships formed, and for me, love and friendship was one of the overriding messages of the film. I have to say, I was rather touched by some particularly emotional scenes including, Matt Willis', (who was brilliant by the way) and Chris Reilly's also, but I was on the edge of my seat throughout, and the amazing soundtrack made sure of that! This is one of THOSE films... a definite MUST SEE!
