    Superb!

    Miracle at St. Anna is a wonderful film adaptation of the novel which inspired it. There are however two things which really turned me off. The first occurs at the beginning of the film when Director Lee shows one of the main characters watching John Wayne in "The Longest Day" on tv. Mr. Lee use this as an opportunity to bash John Wayne and make a racial statement which is uncalled for & has absolutely nothing to do with the story. The second is the "jump here/jump there" filming which make s the story difficult to follow. Beyond that is the obligatory nudity & sex scene which again has nothing to do with the story. Better editing might have remedied that however the sweeping visuals, beautiful location, acting & suspense take up the slack. In conclusion I give the film 4 out of 5 stars.

    Couldn't take my eyes off of it!

    My father IS a WWII vet and has a difficult time sharing much of what he experiended in Europe. This movie inspires me to find out historical facts related to that particular time in our history and I wanted to thank everyone who made it possible for us to see it through this particular medium.

    Aside from that significant personal point of reference, the movie is good. Better than good.

    Strong and a great story

    This movie is a must see. You have to stay with it or you will loose the reasons for the way it is put together.

    Fantastic War Movie , An Epic of our Time

    It was one of a few films I have seen that actually followed the plot as it is writen in the book. A little long for viewing but they managed to do it tastefully and the actors and plot were exceptional. The visualization was excellent and the scenery fantastic. I bought two copies of the movie and cherish them and they shall remain a favorite of mine for years to come. It is on par with A Soldiers Story. both portray the African American soldier as it truly was back then. My father served in the army and the movie only served to confirm the facts of life in the Amry for the black man in World War II. We need more of these films to show our children and let them know we are proud to be American and very much participate in protecting the freedoms we so readily enjoy.
