I generally like World War 2 movies but this one's pretty mediocre. These guys are supposed to be Pathfinders who lead the way for the rest of the paratroops but I'm pretty much convinced if the Pathfinders acted like these guys did a paratroopers on D-Day would have probably ended up in the middle of the Atlantic. The lines and the acting in this movie are just bad. It did do a fairly good job of trying to have realistic equipment from that period of time. But they kept doing stupid stuff. Among other things they talked in normal tones of voices sometimes quite loudly when they're trying to hide in the field from the Germans who are 15 or 20 feet away. Believe the bad reviews for this one. It's not a 1-star movie in my opinion but it's pretty mediocre

I LOVE movies about WWII and am an amatuer historian. This movie was so bad that I could not even sit through the whole thing! The acting was absolutely pathetic. Stiff, stilted and unbelievable. I wish I had i had not wasted my money on this and would reccomend for real WWII buffs to stay away from this one. Try one of the Saints and Soldiers movies instead.

Generally speaking, Pathfinders are an integral part of Airborne and Air Assault operations. This movie did nothing to tell the story of real Pathfinders and the acting was atrocious!
