Goofs

The Israeli soldier sitting in the cafe, prior to Peter meeting his mother, is wearing bright khaki colored uniform that has been phased out during the 50's in favor of olive colored uniform (excluding Air Force and Navy). Considering he is a Private ca. 1959, he would not have had the older style uniform. In addition, the unit tag on the soldier's left shoulder, while it might not even have existed in the 50's, is of a style that was only in use since the 70's (synthetic rather than cloth).

Riveting thriller. True story, so a deeply moving experience for the audience, too.
30 August 2018 | by bopdogSee all my reviews

I remember this event from my childhood. It was the excellent trailer that took me to the opening day today. It is a REALLY outstanding movie. It is so good that when I think back on it, my mind goes ahead and wishfully inserts supreme actor Liev Schreiber into the cast (he wasn't in it, however - D'oh!). It's that kind of good.

The movie is dramatic and intense, the suspense approaches "unbearable" (but not quite). One striking feature is there are no histrionics. No manly men bang tables and shout heroic things. That type of hitting the audience over the head with Drama with a capital "D" is unrealistic anyway - and very corny. Here everyone acts like real people. Life happens in speaking voices. And yet, without the melodrama the tension the suspense keeps getting wound tighter and tighter - just from the natural circumstances of the commandos' mission. That's how the movie could feel so natural, and how we could get into it so deeply and effortlessly.

The plot is unexpected, and even a bit outlandish. It is a true story, though, so one gets the sense of deeper meaning, rather than just some dumb action movie, where the director jacks up the suspense and thrills just to please 14-year-old boys. In fact, there isn't much traditional war movie or thriller style movie action - but it is fast-paced.

I saw Mile 22 last week, and liked it, but that was mere button-pushing and manipulated adrenaline. That has its place. This movie, on the other hand, managed to twist me up into knots of anxiety, even though I KNEW THE ENDING; the outcome is historical fact. Didn't matter - I was on the edge of my seat the entire time.

When it was over I felt as if I had a deeper understanding of something fundamental about humans. I had a meaningful experience of humanity. I was thoroughly "entertained" - actually, more like riveted.
