    I look forward to seeing it. I kind of like Clooney. Just watched him in 'Gravity' and he showed us a stellar performance (no pun intended).

    The real story behind the movie and the guys chasing looted art in order to save it is fascinating.

    I saw it the other day, myself. It was a pretty good movie. But like Ade says, don't go in expecting something like Band of Brothers. The uniforms and everything were pretty good, minus George Clooney's Euroclone M1 liner (visible for just a second or two during the scene where he interrogates the SS officer).

    My only real complaint would be the accents. Some of them were horrific.

    I had a great Uncle, William Beekman, that was involved with that project after wars end in 1947, he was a Captian at the time. He was attached to the 101st Adjuants office in Southern Bavaria. He was responsible for overseeing the packing and shipping of official Nazi art back to the states where it still resides today in a salt mine in Wyoming I think. I can't remember now.

    Ok - I've seen it and it's ... Ok
    As said don't expect much. Specially don't go see it with high expectations (as I did) because you get a bit frustated. I was very anxious for this movie and when you are like that normaly you don't find it that good
    But it's a good one to see (good story, uniforms, direction, etc). Specially I think it was a very good idea from Clooney to adapt this onto film - It's a very good way to make less known WWII stories available to a larger audience.
