No-name actors, negligible production values, threadbare plot, all filmed with one camera in and near a deserted town somewhere in California or Arizona (supposedly Sicily). Some ridiculous errors, like one officer with captain's bars on his lapel but a lieutenant's bar on his hat. Very little dialog -- most of the movie was 2 small bands of German and us soldiers spraying machine gun fire at each other. Like the whole last half of the movie was just shooting. A real platoon would have run out of ammo in the first 10 minutes.
Lt. "I'm a Lt. I out rank you."
Wife: "I'm your wife. No you don't."
She gave us perhaps the best acting performance in the film, although it only lasted two minutes.
I thought the initial fight scene was realistic the way the bullets pinged off of rocks. Then later in the film they opt to use fake looking CG flames coming out of the rifles. The bolt action rifle was shot as a semi automatic- nice touch. The script, while simple and predictable, needed to be more clever. The shallow attempts at humor didn't make it.
WARNING: This film is also marketed under the title "Battle Recon: The Call to Duty." You might watch it twice!
PARENTAL GUIDE: The bad news is that there are no f-bombs, sex, or nudity so the kids can watch it. Subtitles use the "A" word and "penis."
Just an awful, cheap,inaccurate attempt at moviemaking. In the first scene, we see a small group of U.S. soldiers, and a "Sicilian" guide on the beach, led by a captain in the 101st Airborne, who did not see action until Normandy in June, 1944, yet this is supposedly Sicily in July, 1943!
Also, the captain was overweight, and appeared to be about 55-60 years old! Some paratrooper!
When this old soldier was captured by the Germans, the inevitable heinous, black -uniformed SS officer shows up, to interrogate/torture him. Yeah, right!
This abysmal film is on par with science fiction movies produced by the SyFY channel, with the same type of laughable production "values."
I wish I could rate with minus stars!

This is just a lousy movie. Too many things wrong for me to list. I got through about 25 minutes before I gave up on it. Save your moneyPublished 6 months ago by rpayne556

A decent movie with a cohesive story line. Not the best movie in this genre, but it's good for a slow weekend.Published on May 1, 2014 by Justis Tuia
