‘April, 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy commands a Sherman tank and his five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Out-numbered, out-gunned, and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.’ (IMDb) (by David Ayer, 134 min.)
This movie was such a surprise to me. It was better than I expected. It wasn’t the best war-movie I ever saw. It was still idealized a bit and showing the Americans in a good light, always neglecting what others have done. But the characters were all really nice and so different from one another. And you keep rooting for them to succeed.
It is a war movie so these are never without casualties and some of my favorite characters of this movie died and it made my heart break. But it was done in such a way that you had enough time to get to know them better, before they died.
The images were also so great, but some of the special effects and the shooting from guns, seemed a bit more science-fiction than actual bullets zipping through the air. But it didn’t pull me out of the story as much as I expected. I will definitely watch this movie again.
4 out of 5 stars.
