ROMMEL (DVD Release USA 2012)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Rommel—generic—makes an audience wonder why this story has importance. Partially this challenge comes due to the writing and the thinly defined character development. The movie should move into the higher caliber ranges of war films but missed its mark.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The value of the movie is the insight one gets into how Erwin Rommell and General Spiedel worked in the scheme of WWII. If one does not know much about this piece of history, it may be good to read a quick Wikipedia article that will explain the events that led to Rommel's final days.
