Based on true events, The Bombardment is a beautifully made piece about the atrocities of war. Many films about WWII allow viewers to feel better about horrors committed by the Allies because we rationalize death and destruction in the name of good. This film forces us to confront the full agony that results from any loss of human life. When friendly fire aimed at rescuing the Danish from their Nazi occupiers goes awry, the resulting death hurts no less than if the Nazis had committed it. The final minutes may be too intense for some teens, as injured and trapped people who have survived a blast wait for rescue.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
