D-Day survivor 2016 (film review)
Yet again another low budget terrible war film. The plot a small group of mostly British soldiers get lost in northern France after D-Day.
Where to start, well the budget didn't run to proper blank firing guns so we have the really silly fake muzzle flash and no ejected shell casings (a dead give a way) the uniforms are more or less correct but some of the badges are wrong and yet again we have a soldier wearing a "pork-pie" beret. No soldier would be caught dead wearing one like that perched on the top of his head., let alone a para.
The acting is ok but it's the same tired old plot we've seen before a million times. The locations look nothing like northern France, it looks more like the Brecon Beacons to me.
We have the small group of soldiers shouting and firing while behind enemy lines (not a great idea if you want to live) and even cooking... sadly with a modern camping stove and pot, so another fail. hell even I still have a proper mess tin, you can buy the buggers on ebay for about a quid for heavens sake.
Waynes rating 3/10 just about watchable if your bored silly.
