Storyline

After surviving a massacre in Malmedy, a location behind the German army in Europe, four American soldiers with only one weapon rescue the British pilot Oberon Winley (Kirby Heyborn) in a tree and they move together, trying to reach the allied forces and save a great number of allied soldiers from a German attack with the information got by Winley in his flight. While marching, each soldier discloses inner secrets to the rest of the group. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

As a British viewer this was poor
4 September 2009 | by jeffonsaxSee all my reviews

As a British viewer I would categorise this film as OK but not great. My main problem with it the way that the British airman was portrayed. The character is portrayed as a selfish, rude and not very nice person.

Sure there are some Brits like this but in this film we are not told why. It would have been good to have had some background and character development on why this RAF plot behaved like this.

Other problems with this film is the plot. I was disappointed it did not tell the story of the massacre of the unarmed US troops at Malmedy. Instead it concentrated on a behind enemy lines escape.

The cinema-photography is good which is shot mainly in a snow covered forest. Acting is OK but again I found the medics character confusing. Why was he so nasty to the guy suffering from shell shock? If you are addicted to war films then see this, but it is not as good a Saving Private Ryan.

If you are British this is in the mould of a Mel Gibson 'make the Britis look bad' type movie.
