What a pleasant surprise...great historical plot, suspense, men of character, brave mission, and plenty of action...all this and no F bombs, violent action or sex. I'd take the grand kids to see this for the historical perspective and art appreciation factors.

Decent war movie told on the perspective of saving art

I had the chance to watch this movie free on a military base on Feb 1. I was reluctant at first but decided to see it since it was free. Afterwards, I don't regret my decision. It was worth my time. The focus of the movie is preserving art during the war and the movie does a great job of drawing you into the action. The actors split up in their quest to track down the lost art and that got confusing but It's definitely worth seeing at least once in a theater.

Just went to see this movie tonight and I learned sooooo much that I never knew about all the art in Europe. I wish I'd of known of these courageous men before I visited all the art galleries, churches and Louve in Europe and I would of looked at the art much more compassionately. What a wonderful movie and tribute to these heros that saved as much as they could from the Hitler. It's a must see!!

Seventy years later after the efforts of these men and without their efforts and this film how many people would ever have known. A question apparently asked by President Harry Truman was "...after 30 years who will know of this mission's importance..." I'm glad that I can say that after 40 more years, I am proud they did this amazing mission.

The Monuments Men

Great movie about an under written page in American history. Strong performances by Clooney , Damon and Murray . Nice to see that the United States Army was the vanguard to protect and preserve classic pieces of art and to keep them from being destroyed by the Nazi's. Patriotic without being sappy, and the right amount of comedy to go with the drama...it WAS an absurd mission these gentlemen set out on, and yet they accomplished their goal with resistance from both the Nazi's and the American leadership that looked at this mission as foolhardy at best, and a waste of time and resources at the very least.
