Excellent WW 2 war movie based on a true story
27 June 2015 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

My wife and I liked the movie of Father Rupert Mayer, which is based on a true story that took place back in World War 2 in Munich, Germany. It was about a priest who defied the German Nazi's military and spoke-out how he felt about the treatment of the people by the Nazi's, in his church sermons. The commanding Nazi General wanted to have him shoot, but was warned it would bring enormous about of trouble from the German people for shooting a priest. All of the Nazi's wanted Father Rupert Mayer to refrain from saying bad things about Hitler and all of his followers. So they tried to break him by locking him up in the filthy prisons. That is all I will tell about the movie and its plot. The beautiful screen shots taken around the city of Munich, brought back old memories of when I was stationed there with the U.S. Army in the late 1950's. The Stunning Bavarian scenery of the area was reflected beautifully in the scenes. The director Damian Chapa and the rest of the actors did a wonderful job. The plot was easy to follow. Good acting. Was good to see a few very popular old and middle aged actors still doing their stuff.
