Great movie!! Great story plot. Phenomenal cast.

Although the film tends to insist that it's a war film, it is in fact a horror film in the first order. No real gripes about it except for the fact that some scenes creaped the s**t out of me and the fact that it gets kinda formulaic towards the end.

BASED ON A TRUE STORY, this powerful war movie depicts some painful battle scenes as the US invaded Germany proper in World War II.

Among the 10 best WW2 movies.

I saw this on HBO when it 1st came on the TV back in the 90's
.

Was happy to see that it is now on DVD and is now added to my collection.

You don't see edgy battle scenes here,but film is must to see and tells story of one infantry squad in a battle obscured by Hitler's Ardennes Offensive-the Battle of Hurtgenwald.

This is a battle which should be remembered.

This is what war is about!

WHEN TRUMPETS FADE (1998)

If you like war movies this is superb. It is well acted and realistically done with a compelling story. The cast is well chosen also. I am fussy about my WW2 movies, but this is one of the best around.

the story was very good. the acting overall was poor Zak Orth was terrible and i hope he goes through acting school one more time but Ron Eldard was very good in it. even though the acting and battle scenes are not as good as SPR (saving private ryan) but i think its a better than SPR because its historicly acurite and not a hollywood war flick. it shows that the americans got there ass kicked in the battle of hurtgen forest.

Boring, slow with a host of characters you can't care about or empathize with...the CO played by Dwight Yoakum is loathsome and the budget must have been very low, but it does show that the Hurtgen was a bloody mess...

This was a pretty good depiction of war. Not only did the Germans get their asses kicked but the Americans got reamed pretty bad too (Unlike most U.S WW2 movies) and quite horrifically i might add. I wish i could find this film so i could add it to my slowly growing "Smith`s List" I kinda saw the ending coming but all in all a good war flick, unlike certain WW2 movies...

and I watched it tonight. You can all do yourselves a favor and don't even bother to check this one out. The music, the acting, the non-existant storyline, the crappy special effects; the list is eternal.
