Defiance follows the true story of three brothers bonded together during war time to save thousands of Jewish people from death. However, only Hollywood can get away with making something like this and call it true. Facts don't always make for pure entertainment though, and Defiance is more geared towards pleasing that particular craving. If you've seen one war movie you've seen them all is a common sentiment amongst frequent movie watchers. However, if you're a fan of a genre, then you're a fan. Thus, if you like inspirational war based movies, chances are you will like Defiance. Perhaps one could say: if you liked The Last Samurai or Enemy At The Gates you may enjoy Defiance.This movie is entertaining for the sake of being entertaining. It leaves no doubt that the "facts" were tread all over during production, but for me as a viewer that did not matter. What matter was the adventure and story, both of which came on strong and entertaining.The only part of Defiance that came across as silly to me came later on when lead actor Daniel Craig was apparently being outfitted for a WW2 fashion show. Considering this movie is about a large group of people hiding and surviving in the woods, with Craig being one of them, it seemed odd that he would be so well dressed sometimes complete with fancy scarves.If you can let go of silly things like what i just mentioned and enjoy it as a genre film without griping over cliche, then Defiance is well worth checking out or even adding to your collection of movies. The acting is well done and the special features also offer you some insight into the truth behind the Hollywood tale.

First you must know that I've been in love with Craig T. Nelson since "Call to Glory" back in the 80's. I also adore Diane Keaton. The movie was heartfelt and had me laughing at times as well. A good reminder that life cannot be 100% planned to our liking.

We liked the movie quite well, but we are all adults so I can't say if I would think the younger kids would find it funny. We liked the performances of the ensemble cast of characters like Betty White, Craig T. Nelson & Mary Steenburgen. The chemistry between Reynolds & Bullock was better than I 'd expected with great bits of humor & romance together. I loved the background of Alaska for a romantic comedy as it is both beautiful & somewhat primitive in its' appeal.

Craig at his best with a serious attitude and a good accent. He curses a lot in this movie but takes you into what seems a real drug gang. One of my favs

It was ok. My favorite Bond is Sean Connery but Daniel Craig gives a great performance.

All of the other reviews have stated what I think. What was Fox thinking when they stopped this series? I like this show from the get go. Wish it would have lasted longer. Great entertainment.

David Fincher's 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' is a beautifully-crafted motion picture with a challenging murder mystery at its center. Fincher openly embraces the dark overtones of Stieg Larsson's novel and turns it into his own gothic vision of the morbid, violent desires within the hearts of wicked men. Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara provide excellent performances as Mikael Blomkvist and Lisbeth Salander, making this English-speaking version a surprisingly wonderful adaptation of the first book in the Millennium series. The Blu-ray debuts with a near-reference picture quality and a first-rate audio presentation that perfectly complements the film's subject matter. The wealth of supplements is a marvelous addition to the release and practically exclusive to the high-def format. Fans of the original novel trilogy should be pleased with this take, and Fincher devotees can chalk up another win for the filmmaker.

I attended all of the ELP concerts in the 1970's. Attended the 1991 reunion as well. This item was a necessity and didn't disappoint.
