    Has anyone ever seen the movie Defiance? Man, talk about leaving a legacy... it is estimated that the people saved in the forest resulted in 20K people walking this earth today.... now that is a legacy... anyway, if you have not seen the movie, its a great WWII story based on true events!!!

    product of Paramount Pictures 2008.... Daniel Craig is the lead in it.. I am not sure it was ever in the theaters, I picked it up at Blockbuster.

    I thought it was an excellent film. Another good one is Uprising about the uprising that took place in Warsaw ghetto at the same time. I think both movies show what can happen when a government rids the people of TRTKABA. It also shows what kind of an impact a few armed people can make.

    It was OK. I think I expected more action b/c of the trailers. He spends half the movie sick in some shack.

    Yes, I realize it's a dramatization of a true story and yada yada. But that's not what was billed in the trailer.

    If you did not like the movie that is fine but he was sick for only 10 minutes (15 minutes if you count the parts where he was getting sick but still well enough to be up and on the move) of the 2+ hour movie and even there was some action during that part.

    When I was much younger we heard a Man at the Holocaust Museum in Ft. Worth who who basically after getting out of a camp fought the in Poland. I wish I could remember his name, his story was very moving.
