4.0 out of 5 stars SAVING MR. REMBRANDT, 20 Feb. 2014
This review is from: The Monuments Men [DVD] (DVD)
In 1944George Clooney puts together the clean half dozen of art experts to join the military with the purpose of...not killing Hitler or saving Private Ryan...nope. Other Hollywood stars got those jobs. Their job is two-fold, Find art that the Germans have stolen and to save the art from being destroyed by the allies. They are met by people who don't want to help. those that do, and those that are skeptical. The group divides up as our plot divides into subplots. The film opened up as if they were going to save the great art works of Rome, Florence, and Milan, but then limits itself to France and the Netherlands. In spite of the Indian Jones action music, I couldn't be moved as our crew discovered where art was hidden.

Yes, the evil Hitler was taking art out of the hands of private collectors and was going to place it in a public museum. In order to create an adrenalin rush our group finds a decree signed by Hitler to destroy all art should Germany fall and BTW the Russians were carefully taking the art as spoils of war.

The film had some mild moments of humor, drama, and some heartfelt scenes, most made possible by the soundtrack. The worst case scenario would be the art would all be destroyed and we would now have more engineers and less scholars on European Art History.
An interesting film that was done well, but it wasn't really a war film, action film, or a gripping drama.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Cate Blanchett asking Matt Damon to bring his potted meat.
