Based on actual WWII events, "Saints and Soldiers : Airbone creed" tells the dramatic story of a trio of Allied soldiers trapped behind enemy lines and their mission is to support allied troops marching to Berlin . This is the sequel to the award-winning ¨Saints and soldiers¨ dealing with the Battle of the Bulge and survivors a massacre in Malmedy, in which German soldiers open fire on the unarmed prisoners in a tragic event . ¨Saint and soldiers : Airbone creed¨ has action , crossfire , thrills , warfare feats and dramatic situations . This is a war movie in which predominates the stories and situations of the protagonists on the war itself made , so although there are moments of action and struggle there are also thought-provoking events and some flashbacks recording their life . The story is a typical strategic military adventure where they have to complete an assignment , which is used to move the story filled with interesting ideas and thoughtful dialogues . Good acting from main cast playing three isolated paratroopers who come across a group of French resistants in desperate need, they are Corbin Allred as Cpl. James Rossi , David Nibley as Sgt. Caleb Jones and Jasen Wade as Cpl. Harland 'Bud' Curtis . In fact , this movie is realized in memory of Harland , ¨Bud¨, Curtis . All guns used in the film are authentic and fully-functional, modified to shoot blanks . More than 5,000 blank rounds were used in filming and several war re-enactors volunteered to participate in filming . The good thing is its ambiance and photography, with excellent landscapes and dense atmospheres of war and violence.
The motion picture was professionally photographed and directed by Ryan Little . Ryan was presented with a Student Emmy at the 1999 Academy of Television Arts & Science College Television Awards, for "Best Dramatic Film": The Last Good War . Little has directed a few but acceptable movies such as ¨Outlaw Trail: The Treasure of Butch Cassidy¨ , ¨House of fears¨ , ¨Forever strong¨, ¨Age of the dragons¨ and is filming the third part titled ¨Saints and soldiers : the void¨ .
