Hart's War

Based on the novel by John Katzenbach, author of Just Cause (1995), this prison camp drama combines elements of A Soldier's Story (1984) and the classic Stalag 17 (1953). Colin Farrell stars as Lt. Tommy Hart, a second-year Harvard Law School student who enlists to fight in World War II but ends up being taken prisoner by the Germans. When a murder at the Nazi-run Stalag Luft 13 leaves a black Tuskegee airman named Lt. Lincoln Scott (Terrence Dashon Howard) accused of the crime, high-ranking prisoner (and fourth-generation war hero) Col. William McNamara (Bruce Willis) persuades camp commandant Col. Werner Visser (Marcel Iures) to allow the prisoners to hold their own trial. Hart is recruited to defend his fellow officer, but as he reluctantly investigates, he discovers that not all of his fellow allied soldiers are fighting the same war and that his "client" may well have been framed. In the meantime, it becomes apparent that McNamara is using events to mask his true intent, a mission to destroy a nearby munitions plant that he still intends to carry out despite his incarceration. Hart's War (2002) co-stars Vicellous Shannon, Cole Hauser, Rory Cochrane, and Jonathan Brandis.

Although the movie starts off with the promise of appeal it soons leaves such a path for one of confusion and sub-parness. I read the book and subsequently saw the movie, knowing that you can't expect the movie to be just like the book. What I didn't expect was that the only thing that would be the same was the names, word to the wise: if you read the book do not, I repeat, NOT see this movie. And if you haven't read the book, well, you're bound to be confused. Bruce Willis's character lacks substance(much unlike the McNamara in the book). And Colin Farrell fails miserably to give life to Tammy Hart. Not just as he was in the book but in anyway. The movie is mildly interesting but not enough to see again, ever.Overall a waste of potential.

I enjoyed this movie at some points. I liked how this movie concentrated more on a German concentration camp than on the real battles. Colin Farrell and Bruce Willis did ok but I was confused at some points. If you want a different kind of war movie, rent or buy this.

Seeming to be another typical WWII flim, yet it took another toll. It came to be a movie being filmed mostly in a P.O.W. camp and in the beginning about unity under crucial conditions within ''the belly of the beast.'' McNamara (willis) being deprived from war and isolated from aiding in the war efforts creates a way to escape. Throughout the movie, it has depictions of racism and segregation. This makes it a good film, burdens of fighting a war for freedoms from tyranny, yet segregation still exsists within the disoriented lines that separate who the enemy is. These tensions are the backbone of the film and makes it different from any other WWII movie. The yearning of truth and the awakening of conspiracy emboddies that of Hart (Farrell). Hart, a man filled with nieve issues of the war, protected by his father back home, he is filled with morals due to non-combatant situations. The viewer sees that Hart has to fight his own war not with a rifle in his hands, but through the usage of discussions, laws, and fluent beliefs of justice. This takes the story into twists and turns with misguided information that heads him back to square one and to a dead end until a confession emerges and spawns disloyalty and mistrust. The climax and best part of the film comes around the end. Filled with the question of,''What is honor and sacrifice?'' The luring question recieves an answer by McNamara. Through the two major actors and the music of the film, the viewer comes to notice the touching story through awed inspired moments.

I liked it. Plus it was refreshing to not see the Germans portrayed as totally ruthless and inhuman, as Hollywood typically does to them in WWII movies.
