Goofs

Near the end of the film Stuttgart is shown being bombed by a large B-17 raid, and the bombers and the escorting P-51 Mustang fighters are shown flying and bombing at low level. In real life B-17 raids were conducted at high level, and in any case escorting fighters would never fly so low next to the bombers, as that would negate any ability to protect the bombers from higher-flying German fighter aircraft.

Quotes

Lt. Joe Conti: [after Nate wakes up at the hospital] My name is Lieutenant Conti... and I have with me a letter from our division commander. It's of highest importance.

I like WW2 movies. It's not that I expected a lot from this one. Overall it let me down. I have enjoyed some of the main actors in other movies. The premise was solid. But the overall feel of the movie was it was trying too hard. This is a B movie at best. I watched the entire movie and was mildly entertained. Set your expectations low. It seems that any "new" war movie is either a blockbuster or a sub-par offering. My personal rating system is fairly simple. If I watch the movie in it's entirely it automatically gets a 5, because it did what it was supposed to do. It entertained me. Company of Heroes will go on my shelf and probably never be watched again. It must of been a straight to DVD release. http://thelemondreport.blogspot.ca/
