Worth it for,the history, not the movie

I almost left in the middle. This is a flat, somewhat pompous movie that's more an homage to George Clooney than to The Monuments Men or what they did. (Clooney gets all the morally significant speeches, of which there are many.). The historical framework is interesting, but the presentation of it is not. "So-so" is a high review for this film.

Monuments Men

Nope, didn't like it. LOVED it! There was understated humor and horror, bringing surprised gasps and chuckles from the audience. I had no idea it was based on a true story. This is one I'll want to own.

Really good movie! Surprised to see some negative reviews. I found the movie to be really interesting, had a good amount of action and also had some funny lines too. I very much enjoyed it. The fact that it was based on true facts also added some enjoyment for me. It's important to remember history!

Moderately entertaining, moderately informative, Clooney-lite

This is a light-weight movie with light-weight acting not worth the hype. Suggest it isn't worth first run ticket prices at the movie theaters - wait to rent it.

interesting story, can't quite keep up the intensity, I wouldn't run right out to see it, but it's a pleasant diversion... my wife liked it more...
