2.0 out of 5 stars Monumental failure, 18 Feb 2014
This review is from: The Monuments Men [DVD] (DVD)
The film opens with the coming together of the seven monument men, it was a cross between 'Kelly's Heroes' & 'The 'Magnificent Seven'. The big difference was instead of the muscular physique of Bronson or the cool chique of McQueen, you get John Goodman & Bill Murray.
I was so disappointed with this slushy effort by Clooney & co. I decided to watch this movie because of my fondness for the work
of Murray & Kate Blanchett. Bill Murray was much under-used in this supposed comedy, and I'm very surprised that Kate Blanchett would appear in such a half-baked effort. Her accent reminded me of Yvette in 'Allo 'Allo, I was waiting for Rene to appear from ze café !! I've come to the conclusion that Jean Dujardin should stick to silent movies.
This selection of ageing characters are tasked with saving precious works of art from the Nazis as they retreated through France & Belgium. This is neither a drama or comedy, I would find it difficult to put this picture into any genre or persuade anybody to sit through it. That's two hours of my life that I'll never get back.
