Audience Reviews for Cast a Giant Shadow

  • Sep 01, 2007
    Hollywood's version of the birth of Israel and the men who fought to make it possible. As films of the '60s sometimes do, this one stresses the importance of Americans and their contributions to the cause, relegating all others to supporting roles. Such an awe-inspiring story deserved better scripting.
