War theme continues, but with a different kind of war movie, The Monuments Men.
The story was interesting, that’s why I went to see this movie. A movie based on a true story about a group of men tasked to rescue art masterpieces from Nazi thieves and return them to their owners. In this unlikely group there’s many familiar faces, John Goodman (as Walter Garfield), Bill Murray (as Richard Campbell), Matt Damon (as James Granger), Bob Balaban (as Preston Savitz), Jean Dujardin (as Jean Claude Clermont) and George Clooney (as Frank Stokes). And always so lovely Cate Blanchett as Claire Simone. When I went to see The Monuments Men I expected it to be more of an action movie. It wasn’t.
Many famous and talented actors. Yet, the movie didn’t quite reach to the highest level of entertainment. It was okay, sometimes a little slow, watchable. The Monuments Men is not memorable and somehow I didn’t feel the excitement after the movie, although some of the great masterpieces of art was saved.
There was something missing, I just can’t say what it was.
