    My parents saw it and were not impressed. They said so much more could've been done with the story.

    Read the book. The story of that group is truly remarkable.

    Went to it yesterday. Loved it. I'm a WWII nut and it was pretty accurate. Of course the story is deeper than any movie can cover. That's just tha nature of movies. Def entertaining.

    Re: Monument Men Movie? Anyone see it?

    I haven't seen it yet, so I obviously have to preface it with that. But the audience reviews online actually aren't that bad. The reviewers don't like it and probably rightfully so. I think it is probably a case that with the story it is based on and the caliber of actors in it, it should have been much better. But if you take those expectations away it likely isn't a bad movie (still just an okay one though).

    Also, the book is very good.
