Richard J. Brzostek | New England, USA | 05/02/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Jan Lomnicki's Operation Arsenal (Akcja Pod Arsenalem) is an action movie about a group of men in the Polish underground army that fight the Nazis during World War II. The film brings us right into this terrifying time. We feel the helplessness they experience as the Nazis have control of virtually everything in Warsaw. The Germans impose a curfew at night, they enter homes and take away anyone they don't like, and beat anyone they please. Life isn't easy but some brave people stand up to these oppressors.

In Operation Arsenal, we see how the Polish underground army undertakes a mission to free a truck carrying prisoners, which included some of their own men. The odds are stacked against them but that only makes it more suspenseful. Operation Arsenal has good action and the story doesn't waste any time so this movie is great entertainment.

The deeds of the Polish underground army are heroic and often have a symbolic meaning. With tricks and daringness they fight back against the overwhelming odds. Their actions are a constant irritation to the Nazis. Although their actions don't necessarily win the war, they do frustrate the Germans and provide hope to the occupied people.
