I really enjoyed the movie. The way the story was told was great and I really enjoyed the acting. It was not a Hollywood movie and really showed the war in a different way. I think that the director and actors did a good job and I think it will be a good movie to watch if you are interested in war or history.

i read that an episode of an old PBS series called "the second twilight of the east" was used as a source for this movie.but then i found out that this episode wasn't a was a documentary about how the movie was made.i was then pretty surprised that the movie was made at all.the movie is set in WW2 in Russia.the movie is basically a one-man movie about the making of the movie.the movie is based on the real life meeting between the two screenwriters.the movie is extremely moving and very moving and powerful.the movie has a great score and the movie looks very good.i recommend this movie to is a real surprise.i would highly recommend this movie to is a must see.

It's hard to say who has the best performances in this movie. Johnny Depp and Tom Hanks are both very good and Robin Wright Penn and Ben Affleck are both good but they don't have as much screen time as they should have. It's hard to compare Hanks and Depp's performances because they're so different, and since both of them are also good in this movie, it's hard to compare their performances. With that said, I have to give this movie a "7" because the movie is really good. It's just that it has a couple of weak points.

This is my first post about the movie. I would like to say that it is the best movie ever made and is a must see for anyone who has been in the European theater or one who had lived in the European theater. I've lived in France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands and Switzerland and this movie is amazing. I believe the reason the movie is so good is because the main characters have such great faces and are made up so well, I was really interested to see the other side of the story. The director's goal was to make you feel like you were there, the feeling of being a spy. The movie is also very realistic, with what people think. The directors didn't want you to like the characters but at the same time, they wanted you to hate them. Also the director uses the angles, the camera movements and the time to make the viewer feel like they were there. This makes the movie even better. I believe this movie can be seen by all people and shows what real spies and spies are like. I hope to see more movies like this one and this will become one of the best movies ever made. It will be really awesome if more people will watch this movie and see the movie in the European theater. All in all, it's a movie you must see. If you are in a theatre in Europe, see this movie in the European theater, it will be awesome.

I remember being young and vaguely disturbed by this film, perhaps it was my desire for it to be politically correct or my dislike of it (I knew I had to see it, so I didn't hate it, but the film didn't do it for me). But I think the experience of this film was deeply moving for me, because it is about how the lives of the great and the good are torn apart, and how the ordinary man has no idea of what he is capable of doing. It is sad and heartbreaking, but it is also the greatest picture of courage and pride and forgiveness and sacrifice I have ever seen. The two actors who play Dreyfus and Holt are just perfect in their roles. For anyone who has not seen this film, see it.

I have not seen many of the recent movies that have gotten high ratings, but this is by far the best. The characters are portrayed with such heart and humor. You can truly feel for each character, and each of their characters. The suspense is left out, the action is fast-paced, and the portrayal of the fighting scenes is realistic. I have to give this movie 10 stars for all the above reasons.

This is the best movie of all time! There is nothing I can say that will give you a spoiler alert. I was so caught up in the film that I did not want to leave my seat until the end. I was floored by the acting, the writing, and the sheer power of this movie. I have seen every movie of theirs, and this is the one I have seen the most of. I would recommend it to anyone who has ever been alive, or who is ever going to be alive. Even if you don't like war movies, this is the one for you. This is not a film for everyone, and that is why it is so great. If you haven't seen it yet, watch it.

This is a very good movie, I think that it is also very good to see the brutality of the Second World War in film. This movie shows a little of the real life brutality of the German army in Poland and France. This is one of the best films of the year, I give it a 7/10

As a rule, I don't watch "artsy" movies, but this one intrigued me. It is a movie about two war veterans, who learn that they are both part of a big lie. This movie is a bit different, because it is all about the war. It is a documentary, which I liked. The actors did an excellent job, and it was quite funny. It's about an hour and a half long, and the story is not that interesting. The first hour is just a lot of talking and a lot of war footage. The second hour is about a lot of talking. I don't think I laughed once in the whole movie. I think this is a movie I would like to see again.

This movie, with a 'feel' that is definitely 'one of a kind', has absolutely no 'lack' of power or cinematic impact. When we look back on it, it's like something that 'may be, or may not be' has been 'flown around' in Hollywood's 'shadowed' history for decades. The dramatic and intimate performances are so well performed, and the storyline, and 'story-telling' is just so powerful and true, it can't help but be awe inspiring. I don't think I could watch this movie in the same way ever again, and I don't think I'll ever watch it in the same way again. It has 'this feel' to it that has almost been lost in the history of Hollywood for so many years. I'm going to watch it again with some friends, and we're going to talk about it, and discuss it, and talk about how incredible this movie is. 'Sommersby' gets 10 stars. '10' stars are awarded for this one. It's one of a kind. That's the only way to describe it.

I was actually a little skeptical at first when I read the description of this movie. What did I expect? A true story? I was pleasantly surprised. While the movie was not completely true to the facts, it was a very interesting and well done story. There were many elements that were well researched, and I found that this movie could have done a much better job in presenting the true story. The characters were interesting, and the actors were very good. Some of the dialogue was over the top, but they didn't try to be overly dramatic, and they tried to be realistic. The plot itself was very interesting, and I was always on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. The movie did a good job of developing the characters and the plot, and keeping it moving along at a nice pace. The action scenes were well done, and the overall effects were very well done. Overall, I think the movie was very well done, and was very interesting to watch. I think this movie is very interesting and well worth watching. I give this movie a 7/10.

I am sure this is a review that will be seen by a large portion of the audience and I can only hope that they come away from this film feeling that the Oscars were just right. This is a well done and well acted movie with excellent production values and a great cast. The movie is a true account of the life of two men who are incredibly brave in their actions. One is actually captured and the other survives with no help from the British Government. The way that they are portrayed in this movie is truly a reflection of the bravery that they were able to show on the battlefields of WWI. This movie is the kind of movie that the movie industry should be proud to produce and it deserves the Oscar for best picture.

This is a compelling film. It shows the American experience in Vietnam, from the time the Americans went to Vietnam in 1962 until the end of the war in 1975. It shows how the American government and the American people were involved in the war, how the war was fought, how the Americans died and how they were wounded. It shows how the war affected the American people, the Vietnamese people and the American people. The film is very well made, well acted and well directed. It gives us a great look at the American experience in Vietnam and the American reaction to the war. I recommend this film to anyone who is interested in American history, the Vietnam war and American culture.

I was interested in watching this movie because of the high profile reviews and the positive reviews on IMDb. But I was somewhat disappointed with this film. It's a movie that deserves more than 7 stars and I am disappointed that so many people gave it a 10 out of 10. I was a little surprised by the negative reviews and thought it would be better than it was. But I was wrong. The movie was not about the war. It was more about the "buddies" and the weirdness of the relationship. It was an interesting movie that made me feel a little confused. It's a little confusing at times and I think that is why I enjoyed it so much. If you like historical movies and war movies you might like this movie.

The Catcher Was a Spy is a classic Cold War film about espionage that never got the kind of exposure it deserved. It was based on a novel by Joe Haldeman. The movie is very realistic and the cast does a great job. I found the film to be very hard hitting and I thought that the director did a good job at telling the story. The best part of the movie is the plot. It has a lot of action and suspense and it is very intense. The acting is good, the direction is good, and the characters are very realistic. I would recommend the film to anyone that likes good spy films. The Catcher Was a Spy is a good film to watch.

I love this movie. It is a character study of the true life of a small band of American soldiers in WW2. It is a good movie about the war, but also about the people. There are the good guys, the bad guys and the more strange characters that you would never imagine. These are the men who were called The Catchers. The movie is based on the real life of a group of men and the events that happened to them. I have no idea why it is being called a war movie. It is a real life story about the horrors of war. It is a story about a group of soldiers who make it through a war and come back home, still haunted by their experiences. I will not spoil it for you. Just go and watch it, you will not be disappointed. There is a lot of history to it. I recommend it to anyone who likes a good war movie. It is a must watch.

I've watched the entire movie twice, and it has held my attention the entire time. However, I don't think it has become a classic in this day and age, but I am definitely looking forward to the release of the HBO version. The way the story has been told is very powerful. This is a story that needs to be told.

A historical documentary on the life of an important man in history, the film was filmed in and around the Bialystock, Poland, and it was edited with great care and accuracy. Some of the historical details of the film were left out of the documentary. The only minor details that were left out were the actual origins of the Illuminati, and the story of the Templars. However, for those who have an interest in history, they will probably enjoy the film. I personally enjoyed the film and thought it was well done.

I have never seen a documentary so violent and graphic, and this is a great example of that. The only thing that keeps it from being a real masterpiece is the slow pace of the movie, and the fact that it starts out with the most basic of facts, like how the Nazis murdered millions of Jews, but never actually gives you the facts, it only tells you how it happened. The whole movie is a political speech for this year's election. The movie does have a very good message that's very well put and delivered, but the pace of the movie is really slow. I found it hard to follow what was going on. And then it gets more violent, and the violence becomes more shocking and gory. The most shocking thing of all is how it portrays the sexual abuse of young children, and that really puts the movie in a very difficult position. The movie also has a lot of political propaganda and the themes of the film are really disturbing. I would have liked to see a little more realism in the movie, and it's certainly not a film that I would watch again and again. I also would have liked to see more of the real life of those who served in WWII. It's not very interesting to see them portrayed in this way, and I'm not sure if that's the point. But I'm still very glad that I saw this movie and that I didn't pay to see it in a theater. It's not a movie that I would recommend to everyone, but I would recommend it to people who want to know about the war and its effects on the people.
