It is set in Holland during the Nazi occupation, we are told that Poley witnesses atrocities against the Jews and decides to join the resistance. The cover says "a non stop, action packed hunt through underground tunnels, Gestapo highjack's and daring rescues". Well in actual fact it has a bit of Keystone Cops action at the beginning and then lots of talking, mostly but not exclusively about theology, what is Kosher, attempts at injecting some romantic interest and endeavours at pantomime. There are no tunnels, underground or elsewhere and no real hunt either although we were promised a sort of `rabbit hunt'. There are some rescues but as the Germans are portrayed so amateurishly, they are not so much `daring' as more preposterous.
John Rhys-Davis does try his best at acting against insurmountable odds, but has yet to credit his participation in the IMDB page - we can only wonder why that may be. The film is also dubbed and we have a smorgasbord of duff accents from `home counties' English to the Chef from the Muppets, so something for the whole family. Some of the Germans have a Dutch accent too, when they speak in German.Read more ›
War of Resistance or Return to the Hiding Place(as inadequately billed in the U.S) is the "sequel" to the 1971 TV movie Billy Graham Presents: Hiding Place [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC].This film tells the story of the Dutch student resistance movement whereas the original The Hiding Place focused more on the story of Corrie Ten Boom.This film however is in no way a sequel to the original and you dont need to have seen the first to be able to follow this one.If you have seen the original though you will know that the entire story is told in the 1971 version so there couldn't possibly be a sequel,just a different point of view or angle.
Still i was looking forward to seeing this angle and was a little let down by it if truth be told.
The product description by Amazon bodly states this as a nonstop,action packed explosive thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat.In reality it failed to create any tension and although not a bad film it just failed to move or grab me.With one or two exceptions i felt the main characters were miscast and displayed some terrible accents.At times the narrative was long winded and seemed to go nowhere.Read more ›
The story's supposedly a true one. In a script it probably looked much better than on film. Well, it couldn't have looked any worse, really. The acting is non-existent, scenography not there at all, characters are ridicilous. For example, one of the main characters insists on shouting practically all the time - even in most secret of scenes where being unnoticed is vital. There's even a scene of 4 hostages being shot by a firing squad od 3!!! Casting is dreadful, direction... Well, enough about that, I'm sure you get the picture.
In short: my fault entirely. On two accounts: for buying this movie in the first place and for insisting on watching it through (as I always do, sadly enough). Stay away from this one, you mark my words. A true story could've - and should've - been told in at least a semi-professional manner as anything less is a disgrace to the memory of true heroes it depicts. I'm sure they were great men and they deserve a lot more than this rubbish.
The blurb on the back really isn't right either. it says 'An action-packed war thriller". This film is definitely not an action, or a thriller.
Back to the cover, and again, if the studio wanted to be so misleading, they should have actually been more careful when photoshoping the artwork too... The tanks on the cover, even though this is a nazi film, are british Challenger tanks. and the soldiers, if you look carefully are just 2 differently posed soldiers, duplicated and flipped a few times. I don't know who designed this cover, but it is just so wrong.

Apparently based on a true story, the acting in this film is poor. Rhys-Davies as an old Jew looks like he has been dug up and if anything over-acts. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Hugh Jarce
