The Monuments Men

DVDizzy
16 May 2014
  • Conclusion: Based on its subject matter and wealth of talent, The Monuments Men surprises and disappoints. You expect an important and moving drama, but only get a World War II version of Ocean's Eleven that isn't as much fun as that sounds.

Film Review: The Monuments Men

FilmJournal
6 February 2014
  • Excerpt: A film set in the 1940s that feels like it was made in the 1960s, The Monuments Men is George Clooney’s earnest but rather lead-footed effort to pay tribute to a group of little-known heroes of World War II with an unusual but vital mission. The real-life story is intriguing and full of cinematic...

George Clooney's Actors Are Almost Good Enough to Save The Monuments Men

LA Weekly
6 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Art may not be more important than human lives. But on the list of things that mean something to human lives, across centuries, it ranks pretty high. That's what's so compelling about the story of the Monuments Men, a group of people from 13 nations who volunteered to protect cultural treasures from...

Film review: 'The Monuments Men' is a flat, uninspiring failure

Las Vegas Weekly
5 February 2014
  • Excerpt: After five features, George Clooney hasn’t done much to establish an identity as a director, especially considering how distinctive he is as an actor. The Monuments Men continues the nondescript trend, with Clooney directing, co-producing, co-writing and starring in a rather lifeless account of the...

  • Conclusion: Episodic and never entirely cohering, The Monuments Men has patches of excellence, but is inadequately constructed.

12 March 2014
  • Excerpt: There is nothing like a good romp through Europe in a classic World War II movie. Loyalty, courage, a common enemy and no small degree of humour in the face of adversity to keep your spirits up. Jolly good stuff. The Monuments Men has an extra element of interest.

The Monuments Men (2014)

cinemagazine
6 March 2014
  • Excerpt: De meeste gruweldaden die plaatsvonden tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog zijn inmiddels welbekend maar dat een groot aantal kunstwerken verloren zijn gegaan tijdens deze periode is een redelijk onderbelicht onderwerp. Voor George Clooney genoeg reden om dit thema vertalen naar een avondvullend verhaal.

Nöjesguiden
27 February 2014
  • Excerpt: I George Clooneys huvud är krig framför allt något spännande, ett fartfyllt äventyr i Tintins eller Spirous anda. Receptet är enkelt: ett par överdrivet hedervärda män (helst britter, fransmän eller amerikanare), några genomruttna busar (förslagsvis tyskar eller ryssar) lite konst, lite mörk sprit,...
