One of the most disappointing movies I had seen in years. The difficult thing is that the movie has such good intentions and clearly holds respect for the historical figures and events that happened. But somehow, this epic sprawling wartime adventure story becomes more like a television movie of the month. It should have been a great film that meshed the drama and scale of Saving Private Ryan with the adventure and humor of Indiana Jones. Very disappointing and upsetting. The movie itself is actually harmless and lighthearted enough for audiences to enjoy but it's forgettable once it's over.

While I appreciate the story and praise these men for their dedication and sacrifice, this movie was down right long and boring.

Respect for them, but the movie is bit boring

"If you destroy their history, you destroy their achievements and it's as if they never existed."

"The Monuments men" is a boring movie. Thank God there were people during the 2nd World War who were concerned about the cultural heritage and with a selfless commitment went to the battlefields of Nazi Germany to recover the looted artworks. It's a story based on true events, but I still doubt if it was necessary to make a film about those events. In "The Guns of Navarone" they gathered ​​a commando to destroy those damn huge cannons. In "Saving Private Ryan" a group of soldiers got orders to look for a certain Ryan (of course) whose brothers been killed on the battlefield. In "The Monuments Men" some old aged connoisse...

"The Monuments Men" by Yojimbo

A team of art historians is sent to the allied front in the latter stages of WW2 to try and recover the art treasures looted by the Nazis before they are either destroyed or appropriated by the advancing Russian army. The idea behind The Monuments Men had a lot of potential as drama about the ideology of the Nazis and their book burning, cultural appropriation and their treatment of the Jews as a disposable commodity to be exploited and exterminated. Disappointingly, the light hearted tone eviscerates any opportunity for serious, thought provoking commentary and the events of the war are used as little more than a backdrop, producing something that resembles a cross between Ocean's Eleven and Dad's Army. Despite an excellent cast, each of the characters are given little screen time during...

Clooney. How could you.

It is always such a pity when something that had the utmost potential to be great suddenly misses the mark, and for me, The Monuments Men has nothing to show for itself other than being an insulting joke in poor taste.

Nothing is worse in a war movie than a story that doesn't even take war seriously. Inglourious Basterds was already treading on thin ice, but it gave a lot of people a certain satisfaction, myself included. This film, though, this is something else. It is an extra-comfortable, jingoistic parody of itself, and frankly, too much for my patience.

From the introduction to the main execution to the conclusion this film spews one bad line and one badly written scene after the other.
The characters are given their five minutes of what I guess would be considered development...
