So there are like a million movies about WW2, but out of those millions only a handful are good. Even fewer are exceptionally great. This isn’t exceptionally great, but it is a decent recounting of past misdeeds being brought to justice. A decade or so after the war has ended, Germany is starting to prosper and recover, many would wish to never talk about the past again. That is until a young prosecutor, who is a bit naive, begins investigating war criminals. He believes that they should be punished for what they wrought upon the world. There are many obstacles in his way in seeking the truth. One scene shows our young hero in a giant warehouse filled with files upon files of incriminating evidence. It is staggering to see how many notes the Nazis painstakingly took for every little detail. Whether it was the horrific experiments that Dr. Mengele performed or if someone stepped out of line. Every detail of Auschwitz was captured. It is in these barracks of truth that indeed justice rises out of the blood sweat and tears of not only the dead but the living.
This is a good historical drama about the aftermath of WW2. My main problem with the movie was the cheesy love scenes thrown in, they are unnecessary to the story and make it much longer than it needs to be, otherwise the movie is great. – [Blu-Ray]
