War: My least favourite genre, other than the obvious (musicals, rom-com's, reggae, Tim Burton movies). But I do like Nazi's...
getting their comeuppance. Hats off to Indiana " I hate these guys" Jones, The "blue eyed" Boys From Brazil, Schindler's "of course I'm not crying" List and Inglorious "fuck you Hitler" Basterds.
Unfortunately, an interesting story doesn't make Defiance a good movie. Neither entertaining nor particularly poignant, its criminally overlong, generic, predicable and unconvincing. The ever solid presence of Craig and Schreiber and the shameful subject make it watchable but that's far from a recommendation.
I happen to be about half way through reading Frederick Forsyth's the Odessa File and its awesome. I hope Miller nails those goddam Nazis right to the wall!
