Almost unwatchable
30 January 2019 | by davegroutSee all my reviews

The worst film about the Holocaust I've seen. Watched half of it on TV but switched it off. A shame because the subject matter is so compelling: the true story of a concentration camp revolt organized by a Russian army. Unfortunately it has all the subtlety of a Michael Bay movie. There are moments of tension, but there is zero character development. The Nazis are portrayed as cackling sadists - less convincing even than the Nazis in the Indiana Jones movies. The reasons for this may include the heavy involvement of Russia's Ministry of Culture under revisionist Vladimir Medinsky. Unless you thrill to the trope of vicious, bullying baddies in extended torture scenes who are later gruesomely dispatched one by one, you will probably find this film a shallow, disjointed overblown mess.
