Fifth about The Seventh

The Monuments Men

The Monuments MenThe Monuments Men: somewhat pleasurable, but surprisingly flat and unexciting film. It’s a great-looking cast and a very interesting starting point for a plot; the problem, however, is that the characters ended up being under-written and are virtually interchangeable. Furthermore, the story lacks focus and any tension. It carries an important, often neglected message, which deserved to be treated with a bit less levity and more consistency. Production values in general are quite good; Alexander Desplat’s score is beautiful.
