On August 15, 1944 the 517th Parachute Regimental Combat Team (PRCT) jumped over the south of France. Their mission was to support and protect the Allied Troops marching to Berlin. Landing in enemy territory, they fell under immediate attack. In their effort to complete the mission and rendez-vous with their unit, three isolated paratroopers come across a group of French resistants in desperate need. They decide to help liberate some of the captive Partisans. Doing so they will risk their lives.Written by
Lincoln Hoppe's grandfather fought in the German army in Russia during World War II. He refused to join the Nazi party, or let his son (Hoppe's father) join the Hitler Youth. When Hoppe's character holds a photo of his son, it's actually a photo of Hoppe's father as a small boy. See more »
The first paratrooper seen landing fires back to the pursuing Germans with a naked bore weapon,presumably a M1A1 carbine,yet in the prior and following scenes he is carrying only an M1 Garand rifle. A better look at this scene shows that the character Rossi returned fire with a carbine, the character Curtis had the M1 Grand and landed just after Rossi. The camera jumps back and forth between them creating this confusion. They each retain and use their respective rifles throughout the film. See more »
I enjoyed the first Saints and Soldiers movie back in 2003, & was surprised at how good Saints and Soldiers: Airborne Creed was on the second go around. The acting was very good from the top three GI's & also give top marks to the German officer as well as the cute little French freedom fighter. The reason for my high marks of the film also come the above story, writing & direction of the movie. The combat had good as flow as well, but mainly it was just a top notch story. If you have a chance to see Saints and Soldiers: Airborne Creed, get it a watch, it was well worth the hour & half of my time.
Again give Saints and Soldiers: Airborne Creed your time.
