Product Description

Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, THE MONUMENTS MEN centers around an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. In a seemingly impossible mission, the Monuments Men, as they were called, find themselves risking their lives in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1,000 years of culture.

This is a true story of how a group of seven or eight people were tasked with recovering art stolen by Nazis. Many people today do not know this true story. Therefore, this movie documents this critical story of how this small group was able to recover hundreds of thousands of art stolen by the Nazis. That is the basic story of the movie. The cast has all the great actors of today including Clooney who wrote and directed this movie. However, despite the interesting true story and a war setting, Clooney has failed to make this movie interesting. The movie lost me almost midway through. However, I appreciate world art, and it was great to see this movie and learn about these people who played a huge role in ensuring millions of art pieces that are available today survived for us to enjoy them.

I am provoked to write this review because of comments made suggesting it was a frivolous fantasy. I happen to know this is a true happening and found this wonderful version of an unknown battle for art preservation and return where possible, very enjoyable to see. I loved the humour that demonstrated the non-combative nature of this team of warriors (especially Damon's poor French). I highly recommend people watch the special features FIRST so to learn about this tragic part of our history and the few who were assigned or volunteered to do whatever it took to locate, retrieve and preserve the world's art history - like they should have done in IRAQ and the Middle East before the Americans blew up that part of the world an destroyed priceless artifacts.

This is a well crafted and well told story...but film is good however, it could have been better! I won't go into the "plot detail" as you just need to read the other reviewers comments to pick up significant details. The cast is solid as the main characters in the "story" are portrayed by George Clooney, Matt Damon, Hugh Bonneville and Cate Blanchett. I'm half way through the original book by Robert M. Edsel and I can't put it down! The book goes into each military maneuver that "the Monument Men" encountered. The film touches on some of these details, so the dialogue within the script is very detailed and you have to listen to understand what is going on within each location these men encountered checking out individual historic artifacts that are crucial to the story. Where would we be if these "Monument Men" hadn't protected and found these priceless and historic artifacts? They would have been hidden from the world, if the Nazis had won the war! Read the book first and then watch or buy this film!

By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 12 2015
Format: DVD
In 1944 George Clooney puts together the clean half dozen of art experts to join the military with the purpose of...not killing Hitler or saving Private Ryan...nope. Other Hollywood stars got those jobs. Their job is two-fold, Find art that the Germans have stolen and to save the art from being destroyed by the allies. They are met by people who don't want to help. those that do, and those that are skeptical. The group divides up as our plot divides into subplots. The film opened up as if they were going to save the great art works of Rome, Florence, and Milan, but then limits itself to France and the Netherlands. In spite of the Indian Jones action music, I couldn't be moved as our crew discovered where art was hidden.

Yes, the evil Hitler was taking art out of the hands of private collectors and was going to place it in a public museum. In order to create an adrenalin rush our group finds a decree signed by Hitler to destroy all art should Germany fall and BTW the Russians were carefully taking the art as spoils of war.

The film had some mild moments of humor, drama, and some heartfelt scenes, most made possible by the soundtrack. The worst case scenario would be the art would all be destroyed and we would now have more engineers and less scholars on European Art History.

An interesting film that was done well, but it wasn't really a war film, action film, or a gripping drama.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Cate Blanchett asking Matt Damon to bring his potted meat.

I was trying decide whether to see The Monuments Men in theaters, or simply wait for the Blu-ray. On the one hand, it has a tremendous cast and features some of my favorite actors, but reviews have been generally negative. I eventually chose to make up my own mind.

I'm still not sure if that was a good decision.

The movie is based on a true story, and tells the tale of how a small group of men were charged with the task of recovering artwork stolen by the Nazi's during World War II. I'm tired of stories about Nazi's, but I have a lot of respect for people who fought and still fight for our freedom. Art should be for everyone and I had not heard this story before, so I have to admit that I had high hopes for the movie.

Nobody from the talented cast dominated the story. This was a true ensemble piece with screen time being shared. We are shown a recruiting stage, a planning stage, and then the attempted execution of those plans. Unfortunately, the drama doesn't really build in an effective way. In fact, I'm not certain what the movie was trying to be. There were frequent moments of comedy, interspersed with mystery, brief action, and adventure elements. With all of these important works of art at stake, I somehow failed to be completely invested in the story.

It's hard to pinpoint why it fell flat for me. I rather enjoyed the performances of the principal actors, but I didn't feel much tension during the search, or triumph when works of art were recovered.

The closing credits showed photographs of the real heroes who were involved in the mission 70 years ago.
