timbo's review of Band of Brothers

★★★★★

Band of Brothers blows you away. It is better than all...”

Written on: 18/11/2005 by timbo (10 reviews written)

Good Points
The Box Set is of excellent quality.
Intence battle scenes.
Directed by Stephen Speilberg, Tom Hanks and David Frankel.

Bad Points
It is very long, there is no way you could watch the whole set in one day, but the length could be a positive for some people.

General Comments
Band of Brothers blows you away. It is better than all the best war films put together. The series follows the story of Cpt Winters (Damien Lewis) through the second world war from the Normanday invasion, to the capture of Hitler's golden fortress with intence and gory battle scenes through out.

I particularly enjoyed the way the audience feel connected to the characters, every one has their favourite person who they don't want to see have thier head blown off, but enevitably, that kind of thing happens. The TV show Band of Brothers does the book justice, however, it is not suitible for young children or adults with a weak stomach as there is alot of blood and gore.

Each episode is an hour long and each one introduces you to new charecter, and by the end of the series they are all like a big family, a family that the audience feel part of.

Band of Brothers, although based on war, also shows us the personal experiences and emotions of each individual and it can become very moving, espesialy when the veterans give thier comments at the begining and the end of each episode.

There is not much not to like about this series unless you dont like war, (and if that is the case then don't buy Band of Brothers).

You can buy this Box Set in most good shops that sell Films and the current price on Amazon.com is $69.97.

If you like war films and you enjoy drama, then this is the best combination you will find, enjoy!
