it was ok

Just okay. Love the actors of course. Basically a treasure hunt for art.

Read the book!

The movie is pretty good though it strays from the actual events. It felt as though a lot of the fictional drama detracted from the seriousness and enormity of what truly happened. It's an enjoyable movie, but the book is infinitely better!

Thumbs Up

I wasn't sure if I would like this film because I didn't know what it was about. As it turned out it was good, the acting was worth watching. I learned something about the recovery of these priceless works of art, too. George Clooney did a fine job directing, writing the screen play and starring in this film.
