In 1942 Nazi Germany was in a difficult position - while western front hasn’t yet started they had to guard the English Channel, on the eastern front Russians were raising in power, in North Africa the Afrika Korps was struggling to get the upper hand and the resistance forces in Poland, France, Yugoslavia and other countries were putting a lot of strain on Wehrmacht. The last thing they needed is another problem, like dealing with the escapes of Allied officers from POW camps. But in 1942 they came up with interesting plan to solve that particular problem.
Young boy is forced to join the gang that is part of LURD (Liberians United for Reconciliation and Democracy) rebel forces. He is given a gun and ordered to kill his own father - this is the first part of the brainwashing before he is turned into another child soldier in a civil war in Liberia, another brutal conflict in Africa that destroys the whole country.
Operation Simoom is a shining example of how Polish cinema struggles to deal even with the best stories they have. Film was based on true story, the original events took place just before the Gulf War when American agents were trapped in Iraq, it took clever planning from Polish intelligence to help them. How can you not make a good movie out of it? Well, Wladyslaw Pasikowski managed to...
When politics meet with political correctness young woman has to prove to the whole world that she is as good as the best soldiers in US Army. Sounds like a perfect inspiring story worth talents of such director as Ridley Scott. Unless...
Since the success of Band of Brothers Americans were trying to find a true World War 2 story that could be equal to this amazing mini-series. First there was Pacific mini-series based on similar idea, but failed to gain much recognition, later there was Unbroken that was far from being even remotely interesting, British The Railway Man was similarly hard to be called a great success. Hacksaw Ridge was based on amazing World War 2 story and... failed even worse.

Ian Fleming, later famous as creator of James Bond character and author of novel about Agent 007, during World War 2 took part in operation that was perhaps not as exciting as the adventures of the character he created, but still of equally great importance to the world. Fleming was organizing No. 30 Commando unit, later renamed into 30 Assault Unit, a commandos group that operated in Europe as part of British intelligence - from collecting pieces of information to capturing enemy bases at the end of the war. Age of Heroes tells the story of one of the operations of No. 30 Commando.
During World War 2 there were many small operations that perhaps were not very impressive, but vital to the whole outcome of war. Allies presents one of such operations, although it is not exactly clear what real events inspired the creators to write that story, because the movie itself can hardly be called realistic.
Dolph Lundgren is a household name for many reasons, but certainly not for making great movies - just like Jean-Claude Van Damme, Steven Seagal or Michael Dudikoff he became one of the icons of genre that can be described as on a verge between action flick and martial arts movies. While most of such productions went straight-to-video some were on decent level and Red Scorpion is one of the exceptions.
The Winds of War and its second part, War and Remembrance, were based on Herman Wouk novels describing the turmoil of World War 2 by showing Henry family that was scattered throughout the world by the events that started in 1939 in Berlin.
