What we need is to feel it rather than just see it. (Blu-ray Edition)

A well-meaning dud, the film's only defiance is testing its audience's patience.

Since nobody ever seems to be a villain in their own life story, personal accounts of historical events, as in Defiance, may often be suspect, and laden with problematic content like biases, grudges, and extreme characters one way or the other.

A belated tribute to some unsung heroes which turns out to be of considerably less entertainment than historical value.
