100 Word Review – The Monuments Men

An impressive cast tells this true story of a small team whose mission is to find and rescue works of art near the end of WW2.

The story is both humorous and dramatic, detailing the team’s great successes and dark losses, but fails to find a balance leading to an uneven tale. Despite the Hollywood inaccuracies all involved should be applauded for forgoing sex and violence and making such an untrendy film. Clooney is assured behind the camera and the cast do well but a more focused script could have elevated this from a good film to a great one.
