Really realistic

I come from a military background and have studied many wars. This is a very well represented film. The realist executions were well done. Everything was well represented. I would recommend this for everyone, there are to many young people who do not know what are men went through.

This should have got the academy award!

This was a great movie, and a true story. It is cinematically a true work of art. Because it was patriotic and not full of obscenties, the critics panned it. It is excellent. This should have got movie of the year. Go figure!

Great true story of the greatest rescue in American history!

This is a truly great movie starring James Franco and Benjamin Bratt. There is plenty of violence, although not too severe. There is one execution scene, though, where 10 POWs are lined-up and shot in the back of the neck. There is some blood shown with each execution, but overall, it is not as graphic as some war movies. The language is actually not much of a problem. There are about two f-words, although hard to hear because of the battle sounds, etc. There are also some other colorful phrases throughout the film, but not much for a R-rated movie in this day and age. There is no sex whatsoever, although there are a few minor references. Overall a great movie, which most people probably will enjoy. (14+)
