About the Movie
SAINTS AND SOLDIERS is an action-packed story based on the horrifying historical event known as the "Malmedy Massacre." In December 1944, Hitler's army blitzkriegs through the Ardennes Forest into Belgium, creating the terrifying wintertime offensive known as the Battle of the Bulge. Corporal Nathan Greer and close-friend Sergeant Gordon Gunderson find themselves held captive with over one hundred other American soldiers in a snow-covered field. As panic and confusion ensues, the German soldiers open fire on the American prisoners. Greer, Gunderson and a handful of other soldiers are able to escape the massacre by hiding in the nearby woods. Without weapons or food, they take on the unforgiving winter as they try to find their way back to allied territory.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: War is heck in the clean-scrubbed world of Saints and Soldiers, the best low-budget, Mormon World War II epic you'll see this year.
Fresh: Well mounted, frequently gripping WWII tale of GIs surviving behind German lines during the Battle of the Bulge.
Fresh: Though Saints and Soldiers' examination of faith, self-sacrifice and morality is not groundbreaking, it always holds our interest.
Rotten: Dubiously aspiring to be a Mormon variation on Saving Private Ryan, this dull, static war movie follows five Allied soldiers trapped behind enemy lines in the waning days of World War II.
