5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Nov. 13 2011
By Emma
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had no luck finding Hart's War in the stores so was grateful to be able to order it from Amazon. As my previous experiences it arrived quickly with good packaging. I didn't have to make a trip to my post office to pick it up because it fit in my mailbox. The movie was great quality. Thank you. Emma

2.0 out of 5 stars The Plot Successfully Escaped July 16 2004
Format:DVD
HART'S WAR had potential. The last months of World War Two as a backdrop with demoralized GI's crammed into an overcrowded POW compound. If this picture was soley about the hardships endured by surrendered soldiers during the Battle of the Bulge, then it could have had a chance. Instead the film makers took on too many plots and subplots. Unintentionally the movie borrows from SLAUGHTERHOUSE FIVE, A SOLDIER'S STORY, THE GREAT ESCAPE and STALAG 17. A cardinal rule in war films is that the premise has to be simple. In HART'S WAR we find some good elements lost in a virtual Mulligan stew. In the story Colin Farrell's character, a rear echelon lawyer, accompanies another officer on what he thinks is a joyride. Unfortunately for Farrell, the Germans have launched their attack in the Ardennes. The young lawyer is captured, harshly interrogated, and finally shipped out to a German stalag. There he meets the senior POW officer, played by Bruce Willis, and tries to settle down in the dirty and uncomfortable life of a POW. A soldier is killed and a recently downed Tuskegee airman is accused of murder. Yes, you guessed it. Farrell takes on the aviator's defense during the subsequent courts martial. If director Gregory Hoblit left the storyline to develop around the trial a decent film could have emerged. Instead we have additions of Colonel Hart's unexplained behavior, an mass tunnel escape plot, sabotage and the German Commandant's attempt to befriend the American lawyer as superfluous baggage.
HART'S WAR was filmed in the Czech Republic, no doubt to cut costs. A little more effort and a lot less story and this film would have had a better showing at the box office. Still, if you enjoy war movies you should probably add this DVD to your collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Where's the history? June 5 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
A movie based on WW2 backdrop should at least remain somewhat historical in it's context. The implausible storyline, added with a hyped up propaganda laced motif makes for one sorry flick.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stalag 13 - up close & personal June 3 2004
Format:DVD
Well, not really Stalag 13, but the situations reminded me of the TV series. But the racism got to this redneck cowboy who stopped looking at color years ago. I guess that is one of the things about movies -- they show history.
All in all it was a very good flick.

5.0 out of 5 stars COLIN'S MOVIE May 17 2004
Format:DVD
Colin Farrell is an amazing actor. In the few years since he burst on the scene in TIGERLAND, he has given us marvelous performances in films such as MINORITY REPORT, PHONE BOOTH, and THE RECRUIT. In HART'S WAR, it is heart and fierce performance that drives this well executed film. Director Gregory Hoblit (Fallen, Frequency) has orchestrated a tense, inspiring and suspenseful look at men in war. Bruce Willis also stars as Colonel McNamara, a man whose intense desire to be at war obscures his humanity and morality. Terence Howard as Lt. Scott, accused of murdering a bigoted soldier, is also brilliant in his uncompromising performance. Howard never overdoes the prejudice he faces, and is truly moving in his speech about the German POWs treatment in Alabama as compared to African-Americans. Marcel Iuries as the German commandant gives a multi-layered performance of a man driven to exert his power and yet commiserate on the agonies of war. The rest of the cast, including Sam Jaeger (Fisk) and Cole Hauser (Brendon) are perfect. The cinematography, music and editing are likewise top notch, and HART'S WAR provides us a searing, heartbreaking look at the power of honor and justice. And again shows us what a truly versatile actor COLIN FARRELL has turned out to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Ending April 28 2004
By Jason
Format:DVD
This movie has one of the best endings and definitely the most surprise one I've ever seen in any movie. This isn't an action war movie, it just happens to be set during WWII to make it work. It is a court case drama with a very unexpected and touching ending. It doesn't portray all Germans as animals as some movies do - it actually show some of them as humans who do care a little bit about justice.
Colin Farrel does a splendid job as the role of the lead actor. Bruce Willis does better but his role is not the lead one. He does an exceptional job of letting Colin Farrel take a lot of the camera time while at the same time making the movie. Without him it couldn't have happened. Bruce Willis is exceptional and both characters will surprise you at the end. If you don't buy it it is a must see unless you can't stand courtroom drama.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was worth seeing... April 25 2004
Format:DVD
I enjoyed the movie & I'm glad I saw it. I haven't decided yet if it's a keeper or not. I expected there to be more action then there was. I'd recommend seeing it at least once.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the packaging; this is an enjoyable drama March 15 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
With Bruce Willis' name first on the cover, and his big mug looming up front, I was expecting this film to be 'Die Hard' meets 'Hogan's Heroes.' You know, 'Bruce Willis is Joe Hart, kicking some Nazi 'behind' behind enemy lines, waging his own private little war - Hart's war!' But the packaging does a great disservice to the film.
First of all, Willis isn't even Hart; he's an important but sparingly used character. Colin Farrell is Hart, and he, Willis, and Howard give fine performances in this serious drama which is more about racism, cowardice, and the hypocrisies within and between otherwise good men, rather than being about gunplay. The heroics in this film are on a more subtle level.
Some here have called this film historically innaccurate. That may strictly be true, but the spirit rather than the letter of the script is what's important. And when you know the true stories of WWII, truth is certainly stranger than fiction; if I were told that this WAS based on a true story, I'd have believed it. It's less crazy than a lot of films that ARE based on fact!
