Minnesota Man90 - While maybe not an edge-of-your-seat thriller, it is absolutely one that will command you to lean forward and look harder at whats underneath it all

Bryan Lienesch80 - The tension of the moment is cut only by the film's inisistence on being both a biopic and a World War II era period piece. In truth, had it stuck to one, it probably would've gone a lot further.
