3.0 out of 5 stars A Good Story, 23 Feb 2014
This review is from: The Monuments Men [DVD] (DVD)
Based on fact one has to guess just how near reality the film actually was as the film is based on just 7 men. Suffice to say another American film that erases the major British involvement in an event in World War 2. In reality the actual operation eventually grew to a group of 350 or so men and women from thirteen nations.One of the English ladies was found and invited to the London premiere. We have one sole British representative who gets killed off anyway.

The background scenes are as good as any you would get for authenticity, (touch of Private Ryan). Nice to see the military in uniforms that look like they have been worn for a change instead of the usual crisp and newly pressed ones they seem to wear in films these days. Plenty of troops which must have been a field day for all the re-enactment groups with their trucks etc.

A superb web site to visit is, 'History Vs Hollywood, then enter the film title, It gives the truth and shows who played who in the film. Well worth a visit.

A war film ? or an action film ?, a bit of both but worth a watch.
