The Monuments Men – Movie Review

Another disappointing film. The Monuments Men was neither fish nor fowl. It was part action war movie and part art heist caper but failed in both. The action consisted of a lot of short scenes which felt disconnected and for the most part lacked tension or drama. The art-history part of the movie had a preachy feel to it, the audience repeatedly being told of the importance of art. I think it would have been better to have produced a documentary instead. 2 stars (only just).
