Movie Reviews

Jean`s Amazing Screen debut
Mr C Pattinson | London | 01/28/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I really loved this movie with very strong performances from the lead actors and the debut of dance star Jean Butler is truly fantastic and the dance gig she performs is worth 5 stars on its own and i am suprised Bill Campbell isnt a bigger star that he is, Angus maCfadden showing what a fine and underated actor he is as the German and the dvd is very good as it includes a decomentary of the real life camp of WWII,i highly reccomend this movie if you like real life ar stories as it has everything,action,comedy,romance ,fights etc and includes many excellent performances from UK Tv stars including Joe McGann and John Gordon Sinclair,but for me it is the astounding beauty of Jean Butler`s performance that lights up the screen and makes this movie a must."
The Brylcreem Boys, a hidden gem
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A rather serious movie that explores the nature of relationships between enemies and allies in the midst of a war, The Brylcreem Boys with its almost 'Hogan's Hero's' type feel to the underlying theme is truly one of the finest films I have seen in a long time. This film lacked the hype that many other films get, but in my opinion it leaves most of them in the dust. The tension begins when an American and a German pilot have managed to shoot each other down over neutral Ireland during World War II. To preserve its neutrality in the war, Ireland places all belligerents -Axis and Ally- into a POW camp, where the one intolerable action is to bring the outside war into Ireland. As a social scientist I found this movie to be thought prevoking regarding what it means to be gentlemen in a time of extreme conflict. This remarkable film gives fascinating insight into human behavior in a place far removed from the horrors of the war, and is a film that promises to satisfy a multitude of different tastes."
A totally captivating film play.
W. W. Stillwagon Sr. | North Plainfield, NJ USA | 09/25/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've seen the movie twice by choice because it presents (I believe) a place in time of which the world knows little. I believe the producers, director and actors faithfully portrayed four important cultures in an unusual setting during WWII, the Irish, English, Americans, and Germans. I merely stumbled on the movie while surfing with my dish; I was held spellbound during my first and second viewing. The film and concept are absolutely fascinating, historically significant, and well done. END"
Great Movie!
