"Monuments Men"


A group of artists, architects and other art experts are tasked by the Allied High Command with trying to locate, catalog and return all of the great works of art stolen by the retreating Nazis across Europe.  This movie roughly tells the tale of the Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives Program created during WWII to try to conserve, locate, recover and return Europe's art treasures from the vengeful and looting Nazis.  This wasn't a bad flick but was a bit too comedic for me at times.  Although the cast is full of great actors I think it was miscast in my book.  Here is the trailer so see what you think.

Worth a single viewing but not all that special,
Brian
