I understand this is a low budget production, and it shows. Almost everything about it make it seem like an amateur production. The script is repetitive and poorly written ("Remember what Grado's friend said he saw Dakks do in Charlie company?" YES, thank you, WE DO) and lacks subtlety and originality. The evil nazi crushes a walnut with his bare hand, that's how evil he is.
The characters are cardboard figures without chemistry and they are placed within a story seemingly made up by an AI fed with WW2 movie scripts, and going nowhere. There are some soap opera style conflicts and backstories, some drama, some attempts at humour, even a weak romantic plot line, but most of all a lot of shooting and explosions to keep the guys interested, because nothing else is.
The acting is half bad, the CGI is terrible, and it's CGI everywhere. Even simple indoor scenes is filmed in front of a green screen. Everything is draped in overly dramatic war film music to cover up the show's visual shortcomings, but it only makes everything worse.
The director is inspired by old shows like Rat Patrol and Combat which he watched as a child. So the show isn't really about WW2. It's about shows about WW2, making it a pastiche, but a terrible one due to all of the above. Watch a quality WW2 pastiche instead, like Inglorious Basterds. Or a quality WW2 drama production, like Saving Private Ryan or Band of Brothers. He**, even M.A.S.H. has more realism and heart than this show.
On the bright side: The costumes was good.
