Rating (Out of 4): 4

Pros: This is an exceptional piece of filmmaking from beginning to end.  Amazing set-pieces, exceptional acting, and brilliant directing create a harrowing look at an often overlooked event during World War II.  This cannot be stressed enough: see this movie no matter what the format, but if you have the opportunity, do yourself a favor and see it in the largest IMAX format you can.  The vast majority of the film was made specifically with large format theaters in mind, and it shows.  By keeping the runtime just under two hours, the audience doesn’t get completely exhausted by the end of the film.

Cons: Absolutely nothing to complain about here.
