Defiance

 

USA 2008, 137 minutes
Dir. Edward Zwick
Genres: Action/Adventure / War

Topics: Period 1940s.

 

Aroview: Edward Zwick (GLORY) delivers big, earnest moments in this true story of four brothers who launch an all-Jewish resistance against the Nazis during WW2.

Fronted by the handsome (if incongruous) Daniel Craig and featuring an excellent turn by Liev Schreiber as a socialist rebel, the film’s rousing war movie formula is confidently mounted with all the Hollywood trimmings. As to be expected though, dir. Zwick’s overstated style dominates to the point of speciousness, flattening out the story’s ambiguous, untold history into a self-righteous and thoroughly cliched tale of good vs. evil.
