Saints and Soldiers


Recommended Posts

"The movie is about a small group of soldiers who are trapped deep behind enemy lines following the infamous Malmedy massacre that took place during World War II's Battle of the Bulge. The soldiers have vital enemy intelligence in their possession and decide to deliver it to the front lines, over 20 miles away. Success would require surviving the roving German troops and the frigid Ardennes forest. Armed with only one rifle, the men meet obstacle after obstacle, and must deal with the challenges, as well as the tension between their conflicting emotions. Things get increasingly more desperate until the climactic showdown with the German Army that tests the courage, honor, and camaraderie of the men."

I really enjoyed this movie, even with the ending. I think more movies need to be made like this to show the human emotion that goes into war.

Yep - good show. My dad was in the battle of the bulge, and he always said "If they show you a movie about the Battle of the Bulge, and it doesn't show a bunch of poor grunts freezing to death in the snow, it's not what happened."
