Movie Reviews

OK, but very disappointing
Mike Crestwood | New York | 01/06/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Given that the story of the 8 German spies is fascinating, it's hard to imagine anyone ruining the story, but that's what happened. Although the acting and writing are well done, the story drones on, without any mention at all of perhaps the most interesting twist of all in the tale: the US Supreme Court holding a virtually unprecedented special session to hear oral arguments in a habeas corpus petition on behalf of the spies whose attorney (an Army colonel, no less!)claimed they should be tried in a regular court room, not by a secret military commission. THe case is Ex Parte Quirin, and is a case anyone interested in military commissions or WW 2 should read. The Supreme Court denied their petition and they were executed. How could this be overlooked, especially when there's footage shown of their attorney on the steps of the US Supreme Court's courthouse? Anyway, as interesting as it is, it is a major disappointment."
