Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Clooney's movie is a slow-witted, occasionally agreeable retread of numerous WWII band-of-brothers flicks its director no doubt watched on TV as a 1970s teenager. – Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Feb 7, 2014

Rotten: We may have gained something in humor by not taking the saviors in the art-rescue story very seriously, but we've lost just about all of the romantic pleasures of heroism. – David Denby, New Yorker, Sep 22, 2014

Rotten: The movie does a good job of illustrating why protecting art from the Nazi scourge was important but it's far less effective fleshing out the personalities of the people who did the protecting. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Feb 9, 2014

Rotten: Think of them as Inglorious Art Historians. Only this PG-13 entertainment has little of the edge, however complicated, of Quentin Tarantino's 2009 Holocaust revenge flick. – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, Feb 7, 2014

Silly

There is no way the US Military would have employed such old men.

Deeply Offensive

Imagine being intimidated, harassed, called a “rat” by the ruling Nazi Party, and then taken by force in a train to a concentration camp. You’re hungry, scared surrounded by other men, women and children (some of which are separated from their parents). The Nazi guards then strip your clothes; they shave all of your hair, and put you in a line with others like sheep to a slaughter. You have no idea what will happen next: death by firing squad, maybe the rumors of death camps are true? If you’re lucky, you may survive as a slave to their war machine. Armed guards tell you that “it’s only a shower” – you head down into a concrete room, the doors slam and lock behind you, and then gas comes out of the shower heads. When the people realize what is happening, they panic. Pure fear and adrenaline race through the nude and dehumanized mass of people as people begin the choke to death. The men try in their last moments to escape by clawing into the doors and ceilings before, they do, die in a worse manner than animals. Piles of bodies lie in stacks because the crematoriums are not efficient enough to burn the bodies as they are processed in the gas chambers.

You get the picture…

The Holocaust was one of the most evil, vile, despicable events in the history of mankind. It was the mechanized murder of millions of people.

“The Monuments Men”, was, in my opinion, deeply offensive. It reinforces stereotypes about materialism and shamelessly discards the despicable evil of the Nazi regime and the Holocaust. Frankly, the “Southpark” guys had it right in “Team America” – Clooney and Damon appear to be really detached from reality if they think that hunting down stolen artwork with uncomfortable humor does justice to those that died and suffered in WWII.

TRIVIALIZES HISTORY

What a shame. Great story, great actors; total lack of respect for the era and the story.
