We often go to movies that the critics treat unkindly. Happy we did it again. Although not Academy Award material, this film was funny and immensely touching at the same time. The cast had great chemistry. The storyline should have been better developed - not enough nuance and the Monuments Men task appeared a lot simpler than it was in reality. But overall, a very positive theater going experience!

Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I think adding a few more minutes of character development might have helped but overall it presented a great story true to historical fact. Superb actors and location shots that seemed true to the storyline. Go to see it!

I love treasure hunt movies and this one was great and a wonderful tribute to the men who actually did this. It was not slow or boring but full of action and anticipation of the next move. It is a war movie and thus does have sad scenes. This is not a movie for young but more for adults who can remember some of these times.

Yes, its Hollywood,. Yes, it's got star power, yes, its a good screen play.
But when all said and done it brings to light one of the all time great human cultural efforts to save the soul of our Western European culture from destruction.
Who ever decided that this should be made into a movie had their head screwed on right!

We were pleasantly surprised. Had seen some so-so reviews, but didn't agree with them. What a fascinating story; what these men did for the art world and history is immeasurable.
People should see this just so they know what went on.
