    "Why another WWll film? Hasn't it all been done, all been said? What's the point?" And so I wondered while watching until, despite the less-than-experienced and sometime cliched delivery from some B-list outfit, a story emerges that asks some interesting questions. Although it never leaves the enormous footprints of those that have gone before, like the voice of a child ("what did lil Mikey just say?") it does come around to make some worthwhile points. The cast, the script, the tech, never overblown, does well in maintaining our interest until that happens. Two thumbs up.

    World War II war film featuring Corbin Allred, Alexander Niver, Kirby Heyborne, Lawrence Bagby and Peter Holden.It is based loosely around events taking place shortly after the Malmedy massacre during the Battle of the Bulge where several US soldiers and a downed British airman need to reach Allied lines to pass on some vital intelligence.Despite the good epoch reconstruction, this movie suffers of bad script, with empty dialogues and boring conversations between the soldiers.By the way, the actors don't look like world war II soldiers at all, and the whole project is an attempt to catch some "Saving private Ryan's" ideas.i love war movies, but this one is not one of my favorites.

    I didn't have very high hopes for this film, because it only runs a little over an hour-and-a-half. Come on, war films are suppose to be 3 hour epics about people walking around, shooting people and talking about dying. Well, it's actually got everything but the 3 hour runtime thing down. I guess this is pretty much the opposite of "The Thin Red Line" in some ways. This film falls into the conventions of war films, but doesn't drag them out to a painfully dull extent. However, where "The Thin Red Line" made up for that with a deal of offbeat elements, this film doesn't feel too refreshing. Of course, that's not the film's only flaw. The film suffers from a lack of development, a slow pacing, quietness and some overdrawn points. Still, it all comes down the film's falling into the tropes of the war film genre. It's a story we've seen many times before in the war genre and it follows a deal of the same beats from this storyline. Characters and messages are cliched, as are the character fate hints, making many events rather predictable. One of the most offbeat things about this story is that it takes place in a snowy setting. Still, though the story is familiar, it still carries that compelling kick, being backed-up by such strenghts as lovely cinematography, a fine score, solid sound, fine production designs, charming character chemistry, effective comic relief, good action sequences, emotional resonanse and a good ending. Of course, what carries the film are the performances. Speaking of conventions, who's ready for another redundant discussion on the strong performances? If you guessed that I was going to say that these guys emote well, have great chemistry and give off a compelling atmosphere, then congradulations, you win. Your prize is the dawning realization that you're sad enough to have read enough of my numbingly long reviews to find my conventions. Well, you can cry about that later, because I've still got a redundant discussion to make. The performers' crackling chemistry and emotional work are what make the film's characters and story so compelling. There, now let me just wrap this thing up. In the end, "Saints and Soliders" is not the most refreshing entry in the war film catalogue, but the compelling story - carried by the strong leads and find technical value - make it worth the watch.

    Great tale of four soldiers stuck behind enemy lines during WWII, and how these four very different people have to ban together to fend off Germans and each other to get vital information to the allies.
