Audience Reviews for The Devil's Brigade

The Devil's Brigade is a very good and entertaining war film that tells the story of a team of Special Forces mixed up of Canadian and American soldiers during the Second World War. Although not perfect, this is still an engaging movie that is a must see for any war film fan. The cast do a fine job with the material, but it could have been done better at times, considering that the real life Devil's Brigade are true icons of Special Forces warfare. The true story is quite interesting, and this film can peek your interest into the subject as well. However there are parts that are pretty slow, and really should been reworked a bit to really make this a standout war film. The film was viewed as a rip off of the Dirty Dozen, but that is not true. I view them to be separate movies, and each is very different. What we have here with the Devil's Brigade is an exciting war film that chronicles the exploits of the famed regiment. This is a film that is worth seeing if you're interesting in a true story about some truly courageous soldiers. The film may be inaccurate at times, but it has enough going for it to make for a worthwhile film going experience. The Devil's Brigade is an entertaining film that is sure to appeal classic war film fans as well as history buffs. However to get the full story of the brigade, read up on them in books and multiple articles on the net. This is an entertaining film, but one that leaves a lot to be desired. Despite this, it's a film worth seeing.
