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!

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.

Will be loved by liberal arts majors simply for the topic

What do you say about an OK movie? It's not "bad" --- have seen WAY worse this year. A bit shallow & superficial. Special effects were .. OK. Cate Blanchette carried the others, though John Goodman put in a strong performance. But the rest were very vanilla. No emotional draw, though the topic was ripe for it given the suffering that existed (in the real world, not in the movie). So the movie is OK. You will not feel cheated. You may not have much to talk about on the way out, but at least you will not be grumbling. Maybe the reason here is to see the one and only movie directed by Clooney (I'm sure he will not get another crack at directing given how little he got out of this crew). So, yeah - go see it. Get some Milk Duds. Have a Pepsi (not Coke). Fool around with your significant other when the lights go down. ENJOY!

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...

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.
