It may not dig very deep, but it's an effortlessly entertaining homage to the Golden Age of Hollywood that packs a surprising emotional wallop.

The Monuments Men feels like a monumentally wasted opportunity.

It's certainly enjoyable seeing this great group of actors...get to work with each other, given time to build moments and reactions, albeit the film's insistent score sometimes overwhelms the action.

Clooney is trying to push the merit of the material a touch too much; a fact betrayed by the amount of times his character ventriloquises the film's two main morals.

The rare misfire from a helmer who usually evinces just as much self-assuredness behind the camera as he so easily embodies in front of it.

George Clooney's simplistic wartime art heist movie staggers between parody and sincerity, failing at both.

Murray and Goodman seem to light up the screen whenever they appear, and scenes such as one that takes place at Christmastime during the Battle of the Bulge are especially moving.

The film makes a profound point in a subtle way - that the Fuhrer's ambitions if left unchecked would have been world-altering, in the most unsettling of ways.

My main takeaway from Monuments Men is that sometimes not every nifty true oddity from history needs to be made into a movie.

It's when The Monuments Men tries to mix the funny and inspirational with the tragic reality of war that it really struggles.

This is a movie that never quite realized what it was supposed to be doing.

The promo lines for the film say that The Monuments Men is about the greatest treasure hunt in history, but it's so much more than this.
