Saw this when it 1st came out as a film 4 a boring weekend, was fairly impressed by the cast, but still only a 1 time watch!
Spielberg makes these history movies / documentaries, I'd take any day
A little too long, but still very enthralling.
Spielberg and his cast are in top form. Very compelling plot that looses steam around the third act. John Williams is amazing as always.
Underrated period drama. Has some dark elements but a power message.
Watched this in history class not very historically actuate but neither is 300
Very long, slow movie that picks up steam as it goes along. Stacked cast that are firing on all cylinders too
Love the cast and the story is very moving.
Had to watch it in school and it's not that bad.
Beautiful acting and an unbelievable story.
