this film is to be released on the 13th, and in response to a thread over at the software forum, I am starting this thread to discuss the central objection , many people have against this film. ie that it uses an objectionable licence in replacing the victorious British and Commonwealth forces who fought this terrible campaign...with a fictional outfit of American troops led by Flynn, who apparently win this conflict without help from anyone else. This can be nothing but offensive for relatives of those Comonwealth soldiers whose actions are being 'denied ' by such film making. This thread is not anti American, lets make this clear !!! However, I am interested in the views of others as to the continuence of irresponsible film-making such as this ; which has continued with films such as U-571 which wrote out of history (except for a minor end credit) the brave Royal Navy Lt. who ACTUALLY did capture the first Enigma machine. There are also rumours of another Colditz film , this time staring many other nationals other than the British, Poles and French who suffered and escaped from that prison. Another poster, Andrew, on the other thread gave the example of a film showing the British Royal Marines capturing Iwo Jima ...this would be thought deeply offensive and righly so....does the forum acept that this should never happen the other way round ?
