I had great anticipation for this movie after seeing the trailer for it. And the full feature didn't disappoint.
The story flows along nicely, keeping to key events while allowing the viewer to keep focus on what is going on.
Subplots added greatly to the story, while managing to not impede upon the main story at hand.
The performances in the movie from all actors were top notch. They were believable, which made it easy to dive into the film and forget that it was a movie.
Defiance has great dialogue, well balanced action, timely suspense, and the proper dose of humanity all swirled together.
I highly recommend this movie to anyone who appreciates the great re-telling of true events.
