Just got back from this.

I thought it was a great war movie, definitely will become iconic. The equipment was authentic and I thought that the tank engagement was also great. Was fantastic to see a real Tiger out to play.

Best thing about it was the crappy things people do at war. Couple of disturbing scenes.

Also, really do think that like SPR, the obligatory SS Amateur hour at the end was unnecessary.

I went and saw it today. I thought the movie was AWESOME! Kind of a split between Band of Brothers and Saving Pvt. Ryan. Very realistic movie. The weapons were spot on and the special effects were great! The cannon sound effects were SWEET!

The movie didn't hold anything back. Dirty, grim and showed the horrors of war and the effects it has on the men who go to war. IMHO it won't be a box office hit. It's not an action flick, but a down and dirty war story.

I would rate this as a top 5 or better war movie! Going to add this to my collection the day of the DVD
release!

ABC News had a segment devoted to the movie and asked a WW2 tank operator his opinion. He said they got the relations and activities within the tank accurate and was a good representation of what happens in battle.

Still not sure I want to see this. It seems like an old Nintendo video game I played where the lone tank goes in and saves the day. Loved the game. If the movie is like that I have no interest.

It's not a movie where a lone tank takes on 20 Tigers and shoots while zooming around on one tread like a thrill show. driving

It's a very realistic movie in terms of their mission and outcome. Without giving too much away, they started with a group of Shermans and they are moving into a blocking position to stop a German force on the move. This is towards the very end of the movie. The Tiger combat is quick & sharp in the movie. It's not Tiger's everywhere. Really only one tank on tank combat scene out of the many combat sections of the movie.

Great movie, but the ending isn't a Hollywood ending of the good guys riding into the sunset. It's a war is hell, dirty, grim and the horrors of war flick. I didn't come out thinking war is fun, a great thing and let's all kill Germans and life is good.

I saw it at 3:50 PM and the place had mostly older people in their late 60's and older. After the movie ended there wasn't a single person talking. I followed a few of them out and they didn't say a single thing to their
wife as they walked thru the parking lot.

That's what has me the most concerned about movies like this. How preachy or biased they're going to be.

Still want to see this though.


I refuse to buy a flight sim that I have no interest in playing, on the off chance that MAYBE someday they'll make the one I really want to play.

The Tiger scene was realistic, except no Tiger driver worth his salt would start driving towards multiple Shermans. That aside, I really enjoyed that scene.

But the final battle was ridiculous, there is NO way that would ever happen..

Its one of the few movies that deserves to be watched on the full screen. All flaws aside, definitely a great night at the movies.

Thought he was trying to get clear of the smoke? Multiple Shermans at one point wacky

Something tells me no Hollywood studio will be making a film based on that. ;-)

Seems to me I read somewhere that it would take several Sherman's working together to take down one Tiger, the Tiger having a slower turret speed but enough armor to literally shrug off the Sherman's shells.

Wow. Just came back from seeing this. You certainly don't walk out of the theater thinking, "Gee, it must have been really cool to have served in a Sherman tank during WW2." No sugar coating, here.
Terrific film. I've been following it's development ever since I heard about the project, last year. It didn't disappoint me.

Saw it and loved it. They nailed so many of the details even down to the interior sound of bullets bouncing off the exterior of the tank.

Saw it, probably will see it again before it leaves the theaters. Absolutely loved it, its definitely up there with Saving Private Ryan if not better in some aspects. Definitely gives you an even deeper appreciation for that generation of fighting men.

I enjoyed the movie. It's two and a quarter hours long but didn't feel like it. The time went by quickly, although it dragged a bit in the middle when they were trying to set up the change in the newbie assistant tank driver's character transition. And what happened at the end with the same newbie assistant tank driver was totally unbelievable. Totally. A similar thing was set up realistically in Saving Private Ryan, but it wasn't realistic here. Not a bit. That was really annoying and diminished the sense of realism that existed in most of the movie. They also needed a better actor for that particular character. The boy could not act.

The way they make movies in Hollywood is basically cookie cutter. Either the central character does not change but has such an effect on the other characters that he causes them to change, or everyone stays basically the same throughout the movie but the central character changes. None of the veteran tank crew were going to change. It wouldn't have been realistic. They were set in their ways, having fought Germans on two continents. So the producer, director, and screenwriter had a problem. They had to come with a character would change in some profound and noticeable way. So they tacked on this kid [I won't spoil it] to undergo this huge character transition in what seemed record time. Those of us that saw the movie know what happened to change him. It felt a little bit too pat.

Other than that bit of Hollywood nonsense, I loved the battles, the language, etc. The first person shots of the tank gunner firing at the Tiger near the end were very cool.

Good or bad, I will see this flick in a theater. Hollywood is Moneywood. Cuttercutter is a cheaper way to go. I agree with Plainsman 's comments. tanksalot

A lot right. A lot wrong.

Never knew you could see tracers when fired AT you. Road marching around totally oblivious to providing security drove me nuts. All tank guns and turrets always pointed at the 12 o'clock. Or at each other when ever on a road. these things drove me NUTS.




I loved how they portrayed how many US vets felt about the SS and how they should be treated. I wish they more explained WHY this was. So many modern folks have a hard on for SS troops. I think showing how US troops felt about them was pretty great.

The working tiger... awesome!

More chopped liver after a certain 2 frag grenades went off in a confined space.


hmm pull into a German town and get drunk when in the middle of the enemies heart land? Seems like a BAD idea to me. Just who was pulling security? Why let your biggest firepower asset crews go get drunk?

Click to reveal..
Final battle was truly laughable. So vet SS guys never thought of smoking out the static tank and then going with a close in assault until after they lost like 20 guys? Not to mention why on earth would you stay and fight a clearly losing battle. Why not throw thermite on the engine deck, pull back, let folks know what is coming and then draw a new working tank from the motor pool and go back out? By not reporting what was coming and if you where wasted right quick without inflicting large casualties you are in effect doing more harm than good. But this was kind of covered in the movie. However just the same. An entire tank platoon goes off the air, maybe it might be important to know WHY by higher. And driving around the German country side as a single tank platoon with no infantry support?

Why was a Staff Sgt called TOP? Seemed off to me. Maybe I missed something there.

LoL very true,

But here's a very good documentary about his exploits and the mystery surrounding his death.
