Product Description

Product Description

Band of Brothers (DVD)

Amazon.ca

An impressively rigorous, unsentimental, and harrowing look at combat during World War II, Band of Brothers follows a company of airborne infantry--Easy Company--from boot camp through the end of the war. The brutality of training takes the audience by increments to the even greater brutality of the war; Easy Company took part in some of the most difficult battles, including the D-day invasion of Normandy, the failed invasion of Holland, and the Battle of the Bulge, as well as the liberation of a concentration camp and the capture of Hitler's Eagle's Nest. But what makes these episodes work is not their historical sweep but their emphasis on riveting details (such as the rattle of a plane as the paratroopers wait to leap, or a flower in the buttonhole of a German soldier) and procedures (from military tactics to the workings of bureaucratic hierarchies). The scope of this miniseries (10 episodes, plus an actual documentary filled with interviews with surviving veterans) allows not only a thoroughness impossible in a two-hour movie, but also captures the wide range of responses to the stress and trauma of war--fear, cynicism, cruelty, compassion, and all-encompassing confusion. The result is a realism that makes both simplistic judgments and jingoistic enthusiasm impossible; the things these soldiers had to do are both terrible and understandable, and the psychological price they paid is made clear. The writing, directing, and acting are superb throughout. The cast is largely unknown, emphasizing the team of actors as a whole unit, much like the regiment; Damian Lewis and Ron Livingston play the central roles of two officers with grit and intelligence. Band of Brothers turns a vast historical event into a series of potent personal experiences; it's a deeply engrossing and affecting accomplishment. --Bret Fetzer

Absolutely excellent! Probably one of the best WWII documentary style movies made. Better than Saving Private Ryan and on a par with Pacific, in my opinion. Damian Lewis, and all the other actors were well chosen and play their parts so well that it is hard to believe you are not watching the real soldiers in action. Every time I see it, I see more detail and subtle effects.

Band of Brothers is simply the best thing ever put on film. I've never seen another show or movie that even comes close in so many respects. Seriously, I NEVER so much as shed a tear during movies but Band of Brothers is the one, very major exception. Every time I watch this series, I find myself crying or even sobbing upwards of a dozen times, from different scenes each time. And don't even get me started about Dick Winters' very last line in the series. It hits so close to home that I just can't handle it and start sobbing like an infant. Everyone needs to see this series, especially if you have relatives who fought in the war.

This series is so well made and captivating. Some of the scenes are a little hard to take as they are very graphic but I was very sorry to see the series end. I would recommend it to everyone except children.

One of the best series ever made about the timeframe from D-Day to the end of WW2 in Europe. A cast of convincing characters backed up by monologues on each episode by the real veterans. Very well done.

This is an excellent series. So well done..and shows such respect for the men who fought. Damian Lewis is especially good.
I highly recommend this box set. I really liked the fact that we found out at the end exactly who the men were that were
being interviewed.

Yet another miniseries of inestimable quality by HBO. Not only is the acting and scripting great, but it's based on real life stories and accompanied by interviews of the men they represent. All the equipment in the series is authentic too which is a huge plus for a history buff like me. No american tanks or rifles painted grey here. No cgi either. This is the real deal and an incredible movie to watch for all aspects of film making. I can't reccommend this highly enough.

This is a fantastic series. I have watched it through many times and have family members who loved the series as well. Really well done in all aspects. If you enjoyed WW2 movies such as Saving Private Ryan and Enemy at the Gates, do yourself a favour and give this a watch.

The metal case the dvds came in is a nice touch. Feels sturdy and will keep your purchase safe for a long time to come.
