Review: The Monuments Men

Okay but not great

I use FLICKS all the time when deciding on a movie and just wish I'd checked out your review before I shelled out my hard earned cash to see this. Sadly your review pretty much says it all. A very poor script, almost no attempt at creating characters and an opportunity to relate a fascinating true story that should have made for a great movie is squandered. Next time I'll make sure I check out your review before handing over my dollars and cents. It's not a bad movie - it just shouldn't be this dull. On a scale of awful to excellent it rates an "okay" from me, but with such a wonderful cast and such fascinating source material it should have been far better. Still, it made me want to read the book, so at least there's something good come from it.
