Saints and Soldiers: Airborne Creed Reviews
I wholeheartedly agree with the comment "what's the point?". If this is billed as a prequel then there is no continuity with the 2003 film and whilst the ending scene is heart-warming it just serves to emphasise the disconnected nature of all that went before it.
It is great to see a WW2 film where, even with a low budget, money was spent on accurate props, and as my father (a British WW2 veteran) used to complain about most Hollywood efforts, this film does not dwell overly long on how the USA won the war single handedly. Overall this is a film to watch once and to be commended for its props, but not one I will add to my collection - glad I saw it on TV rather than having to pay to watch it!
