HITLER’S STEEL BEAST * (Video Release Japan 2018)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

Hitler’s Steel Beast
needs more than 59 minutes to tell its story. Although one learns a great deal, one leaves the movie screen feeling as if there could have been so much more story than was shown. The narrator’s rushed presentation leaves an audience feeling more hurried than entertained which takes away from the enjoyment factor that makes a film great watching. The title supposes that the film will mostly detail Hitler’s train, but the film itself becomes more time-devoted to Hitler, what he did, and his growing paranoia that eventually led to his suicide at the closure of World War II.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. The film could have been much better if it had talked more about the train than Hitler.
