Editorial Reviews

Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, THE MONUMENTS MEN centers around an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. In a seemingly impossible mission, the Monuments Men, as they were called, find themselves risking their lives in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1,000 years of culture.

My wife and I are both aging baby boomers born just after World War II ended, so I guess that had a lot to do with our interest in WWII. When we were younger, we even used a vacation to explore the battlefields of Market-Garden and the Ardennes. So we were at the first showing of Monuments Men this morning. I had read mixed reviews about the film, but both of us give it two thumbs up. I didn't read the book the movie is supposedly based on, but this is Hollywood's version anyway, so I can't comment on the factual content of the film, but it was entertaining from the beginning to the very poignant ending.

So many movies nowadays depend so heavily on CGI and making things go boom that it was enjoyable to see some fine actors plying their trade on the big screen. First, Cate Blanchett alone is worth the price of admission. I fell in love with her in "Elizabeth," and she hasn't lost a bit of her appeal. Playing Claire Simone, a Parisian woman working in an art museum for a German officer, she gave a superb performance. In an early scene, she's been wrongly arrested as a collaborator, and James Granger, one of the Monuments Men played by Matt Damon, is talking to her in a jail cell while she slowly rolls a cigarette, then lights up. It's a remarkably sensual scene that may entice you to take up smoking. Blanchett is the only female character who has more than a couple of lines in the movie. The male actors are an excellent ensemble, with no one really hogging the camera. My favorite: Bob Balaban, playing the character of Preston Savitz, may have been the sleeper in the cast. Looking like the quiet, mild-mannered academic he was, he had some nice scenes, including a standoff with a German soldier who got the drop on him.

I really like Saving Private Ryan - it is gritty, realistic and makes you feel like you were there, and tells a heck of a WW2 story. I also really like this movie - it is not gritty particularly, does have a more humoristic approach at times, and tells a heck of a WW2 story. I honestly don't understand the criticism about this movie. It feels like a lot of people were either expecting the same thing they've seen over and over with grit, gore, and length, or frankly had a skeptical/cynical attitude from the start and immediately I-phoned in snarky reviews about how the movie didn't entertain them enough.

This movie was not a gore fest, so... it's unrealistic then? This movie does not have each character sit down, stare at the camera and tell you some long back story that is designed to tug at your heart strings, so... the characters are not developed enough? There are many characters in many different storylines/missions that sometimes meet back together, as is the case with any ensemble cast movie, so... the movie should have been 3 hours long with a narrator explaining to you what was going on with each scene change?

The point of the movie was about the Nazi threat to the cultural achievements over the past centuries, and how that threat was identified and combated by a group of middle-aged art professionals. I really liked that for once we didn't have some Tarentino-type decapitations, or intestines sprawled on the ground, and cussing for the sake of cussing. No shock value kind of stuff, which I suppose maybe made some people bored. But this is not that kind of movie. This movie told a valuable story based on a true story, in an older-type way, with men who you felt were leaders who led with courage.

George Clooney directed this movie, and stars as George Stout, the man who puts a mission together to preserve, and protect the world's greatest art. The Group is named 'The Monument's Men' who are sent on an almost impossible mission as they risk their lives, in a race against time to avoid destruction of the art, and return it to their rightful owners. The art is trapped behind enemy lines, with the German Army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell. This movie is based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, as the artistic Masterpieces are planned to be rescued from Nazi thieves.

The movie portrays a dark spot in history that covers the screen with explosive action, as the tension increases during 'mission impossible.' Some of the team members gave a superb acting performance: Matt Damon; Bill Murray; John Goodman; and Cate Blanchett were fantastic.

The entire cast grabbed your attention with the roles they played, and sound effects were excellent. The compelling story was informative and historic, with an incredible setting that grabs your attention immediately. Overall, this movie is packed with drama, and action until the end. Interesting, entertaining, great acting, and worth an Oscar. I haven't seen a good historic movie in a long time, one I could rave about. This intriguing movie filled the gap, and was totally satisfying. Highly recommended to all those who enjoy history movies, and war stories!

During WWII, there was a group of soldiers and civilians who scoured Europe in order to "safeguard historic and cultural monuments from war damage, and as the conflict came to a close, to find and return works of art and other items of cultural importance that had been stolen" (quote from Wikipedia). This was something that had never been done before in war; in the past it had almost always been "to the victor belong the spoils." However, the Allies (not including Russia) realized that the preservation of art and culture was part of what they were fighting to protect. To make a better future, they wanted to save, protect, and preserve the past. Some of the undertakings of a few of the Monuments Men were told in the 2009 book THE MONUMENTS MEN and that book is what formed the basis for the movie THE MONUMENTS MEN.

Directed and co-written by George Clooney, THE MONUMENTS MEN follows a group of artists as they travel through Europe in an attempt to save and protect works of art and return those pieces to their rightful owners. Clooney stars in the movie as Frank Stokes. Stokes petitions President Roosevelt to let him assemble a group of artists and scholars that will be sent to Europe to protect works of art, architecture, and items of historical importance from destruction and return stolen items to their rightful owners. He recruits his good friend James Granger (Matt Damon) to assist him with his efforts. Together the two men round up the rest of their troop: Richard Campbell (Bill Murray), Walter Garfield (John Goodman), Preston Savitz (Bob Balaban), Donald Jeffries (Hugh Bonneville), and Jean Claude Clermont (Jean Dujardin).
