Little Emotional Impact

By parsonsdavid

While this movie might have been historically accurate, the movie conveyed very little emotional impact. You didn't care about any of the characters; at times the direction was comedic, and at times it attempted to be dramatic (which didn't work). The parts that were supposed to "pull at you" emotionally involved the discovery of some "name" art piece; that didn't work either. Not sure whether it was the direction or the writing to blame.

Monuments Men - Must See!

This was a great movie with a superb cast. The story flowed very well, the plot was well developed and the characters were very believable. As a fan of war movies, I was especially pleased that the military scenes were accurate and realistic without the gratuitous violence Hollywood often thinks is needed. See it soon.

Monuments Men

I liked it despite so-so reviews. I think reviewers don't appreciate that it is deliberately made in the style of 1940s or 1950s movies with likable personality types and similar plot features. It has to be appreciated on its own terms.

Such a Disappointment

Fascinating subject matter but awful movie. Flat characters, bizarre musical score, strange pacing and almost comical script. It was actually painful to sit through. I REALLY am a fan of all of these actors and was looking forward to this movie. Such a shame.

Worst Dialogue / Bad Script

By metromade
Written February 08, 2014
I went to see this film because of the cast. They could do no wrong, right? WRONG! An Epic Fail. The best thing about this film is the cinematography. The director (sorry George) the screenwriter (sorry George, et al) and Editor (sorry Stephen) should face the Film Makers firing squad, but not to be shot, but to agree never to step behind the camera again. See it if you want, but if you do not, you won't miss much (except exceptional art works and a history lesson).
