Avner W. Less,
From the producers of Company of Heroes (2013) and starring Sean Patrick Flanery, Tom Sizemore, Kip Pardue, Stephen Lang, and Rutger Hauer, comes an intense thriller from the front-lines of World War II. As Operation Valkyrie prepares to assassinate Adolph Hitler, an Allied special ops team prepares to extract the man destined to lead post-war Germany. But after Valkyrie fails, everything changes. Now, unlikely allies must work together to stop a group of Nazi Officers from fleeing to Argentina and establishing the Fourth Reich.
In the scene where the soldier sent the information from the train, and then they received it at headquarters, Master Sergeant O'Malley (Tom Sizemore) knocks on the door of the General. The General says, "What's up, Gunny." That term "Gunny" (Gunnery Sergeant) is generally associated with the Marine Corps not the Army. However, the term "Gunny" is actually used in the Army, not as a rank, but as a duty position. In U.S. Army Field Artillery Sections (equivalent to a Platoon in the rest of the Army), one of the Sergeants First Class (E7, equivalent to a Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant) assigned to the section holds the duty position of "Gunnery Sergeant", which is frequently abbreviated as "Gunny" (the other Sergeant First Class in the section would be known as "Smoke"). This abbreviation in the Army is not widely known outside the Field Artillery community, but it is not exclusive to the Marine Corps. If the General had previously worked with Master Sergeant O'Malley in a Field Artillery Unit, it is very likely that he would remember O'Malley as "Gunny". See more »

Movie might be far-fetched, but the premise isn't.
Some people have commented that the Roman Church helping the Nazis is unbelievable
It isn't. Here are a couple of excerpts from https://en.Wikipedia.org/wiki/Ratlines_(World_War_II_aftermath)
-- Spain, not Rome, was the "first center of ratline activity that facilitated the escape of Nazi fascists," although the exodus itself was planned within the Vatican.
-- By 1946, there were hundreds of war criminals in Spain, and thousands of former Nazis and fascists. According to then-United States Secretary of State James F. Byrnes, Vatican cooperation in turning over these "asylum-seekers" was "negligible". According to Phayer, Pius XII "preferred to see fascist war criminals on board ships sailing to the New World rather than seeing them rotting in POW camps in zonal Germany
