Daniel Craig (James Bond: Quantum of Solace) stars as Tuvia Bielski, an ordinary citizen turned hero, in this action-packed epic of family, honor, vengeance and salvation. Defiance is a riveting adventure that showcases the extraordinary true story of the Bielski brothers, simple farmers –outnumbered and outgunned- who turned a group of war refugees into powerful freedom fighters. Tuvia, along with his unyielding brother, Zus (Liev Schreiber, X-Men Origins: Wolverine), motivate hundreds of civilians to join their ranks against the Nazi regime. Their "Inspirational story" is a true testament to the human spirit.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's difficult, perhaps impossible, to make a gripping 137-minute epic about people standing around under the trees.
Fresh: It is, all in all, a film as square-shouldered as its leads -- tough-minded, forcibly acted and conventionally spun by Zwick and co-writer Clayton Frohman.
Rotten: It's understandable and laudable that they desire not to sensationalize the Bielskis, and they've made a worthy film. But their understated approach makes the struggle seem less urgent than it must surely have been.
Fresh: As a piece of historical redress, a great service has been done in bringing this narrative to the screen.
not enough publicity

I wish people would a) review the movie itself, and b) see the movie before writing a review about it. That being said, this movie was wonderful. I absolutely loved it. It's a perfect blend of everything you want to see. I highly recommend it. Great performances by everyone.
