Base it on the book and you'd probably get away with it.

(It IS a good book, shame so few of my generation actually read it)

Not really a war film unless you count the war on terror.



Olympus has Fallen was very good, let's hope the sequel lives up to it.

So ... it took a British actor to save the White House, and an American one to save London?
Did you really need an independance war for that?

I laughed out-loud at the airstrike at the end...utter crap that makes Enemy at the Gate look like a master piece of historical significance.

Go to the dentist and have a cavity fixed rather than watch this...it would be more enjoyable.


don't you know, getting set on fire reduces your probability of getting hit by a machine gun by 100%

I stopped after that
NEXT TIME I SEE A DAMN FLAMEWAR INVOLVING DARTH-LAMPSHADE, FROSTPOOKY, LONERIFLE, FADE2GRAY, TROTSKYGRAD AND/OR ANYONE INVOLVED IN A DISCUSSION BETWEEN THEM I'M GOING TO HAND OUT BANS TO ANYONE USING ANYTHING LOOKING REMOTELY LIKE AN AD-HOMINEM

Taking a ferry trip in a couple days, and I can't decide whether to watch A Bridge Too Far, or Battle of Britain. BTF has just about every actor I like ever in it (it's weird contrasting Robert Redford in this to his performance in Captain America 2), but Battle of Britain gets my aviation-fan blood pumping. Probably helps that I'm heading to the UK for the trip :D

I'm leaning more towards A Bridge Too Far, but what are you guy's thoughts on the films?

While you're at browsing Michael Caine war movies, you might as well include Zulu.
