Bryan Lienesch86 - Maybe it doesn't hold its own against the greats like Saving Private Ryan, but that's beside the point. There's never been a story -- TRUE story, that is -- quite so fascinating, where absolute professionals -- the Tom Brady's and Peyton Manning's of the art world -- are pitted as underdogs as they venture into a world that is very much out of their comfort zone.
