After seeing the trailer, it seems like a rather light-hearted and easy to watch movie, despite the wartime setting.
“Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, “The Monuments Men” is an action-thriller focusing on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys — seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 — possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind’s greatest achievements.”
Again, another flick with “mixed” reviews from: “A big mess that wastes its stellar cast and plays like a rough cut,” to “A welcome and superlative addition to the pantheon of war films, because it turns high-concept storytelling into a meaningful true-story tribute.”
