Just went a saw this. Thought it was good but there were 2 things that bothered me.
Thought the time jumping was not needed at all. Even though it all comes back around I don't feel it was needed.
Also, there was nothing at the end explaining why their survival was so huge to the war. It was a goddamn military disaster from a German POV. They essentially let 300,000 soldiers live to fight another day before the US was even involved in the war. Big mistake Jerry, Big mistake. Had this been made clear at the end or even during I thought it would have added more weight to it.
The Tom Hardy plot line was epic and the film was gorgeous and a bit of a throwback relying a lot on "theater of the mind" to create suspense and peril instead of pure raw carnage ala Saving Private.
