I am not sure how to review this film. It is definitely creative and interesting in its design. Brad Pitt actually surprised me with his acting. It was something more than the same old boring character he seems to play. Okay Mr. and Mrs. Smith was awesome.

Basically Pitt leads a group of Jewish soldiers into Nazi France to kill Nazis. At times it is funny - at times the violence is horrific. Pitt puts an uniquely American twist on the mark his men leave behind.

The film is filled with a lot of poetic justice, and at times irony.

I enjoyed the film, but I can clearly see why a lot of people will find it long, tedious and at times boring.

While the anti-war message is clearly aimed at the Germans, there is an element of German compassion and American brutality. Some people may not like this.

If you like Tarantino you will like the film. This is by far not his best, but it will do.

Now, in considering my review, remember I am sitting there in horrific pain turning from side to side. It is very hard for me to sit for more than 10 minutes or stand for more than 10 minutes. An hour and a half film is a bit long for me at this point.
