The original Die Brucke is a class German film, that highlights the futility of war. This, on the other hand, is an attempt to apply modern day special effects to an old, character driven film. I am sure it will be of no surprise, to anyone reading this, to learn that the characters in this film are a tad cardboard and the effects not as dramatic as the cover would have you believe. Although not without some decent action scenes, it is still a film that strikes me as pointless. Oh, and the Sherman tank depicted on the cover has German markings on it. Why? Whilst I am on the subject the planes on the cover are a direct lift from the Attack on Leningrad film as well. Lastly, am I the only to notice that the boys defending the bridge are in one scene - before the climatic attack - manning an MG34 machine-gun. However, 30 seconds later, it has been transformed into an MG42!! A bit sad of me to notice, I accept, but these things always strike me as lazy. In addition the film does feature a genuine Sherman tank but they ruin it by slipping in another tank that, I guess, is supposed to be a Pershing. Sadly, it is not a Pershing and resembles something hitched from the battleground of Iraq! In answer to the comment on the previous review - this is German language with very clear subtitles.
