Product Description

Saints and Soldiers is a dramatic, intense and heroic WWII film about members of the Greatest Generation struggling to be both good men and good soldiers.

In-mid December 1944, while Hitler's Army blitzkriegs through the Ardennes Forest in Belgium. American sharpshooter Corporal Nathan Greer, known as Deacon, finds himself held captive with over one hundred other American Soldiers in a snow covered-field.

As panic and confusion ensue the German soldiers open fire on the American Prisoners, in the historical event now known as the Malmedy Massacre. Greer, his friend Gordon Gunderson and a handful of others escape the massacre by hiding in the nearby woods.

The small band of soldiers come across a stranded British intelligence officer with valuable information to be delivered to the Allied forces, further upping the stakes of their already dangerous situation.

With few weapons, no food and strained camaraderie, this tiny band must take on the unforgiving winter to fight their way back to Allied occupied territory.

In addition to winning 14 Best Picture Awards at film festivals nationwide, critics and audiences have showered Saints and Soldiers with praise, making it one of the most acclaimed films of 2004.

This is a 10 star event! It was based on actual events and I could see no acting in this movie. These guys, and 2 girls, make you feel that you are truly watching a real, live, event as it is happening. The sound track is also very well done. In surround sound you can hear the bullets whizz by. GREAT JOB all around and I don’t care if you are a man, woman, or child, it will bring tears to your eyes!

Not just a movie about war - the real message is love
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

Saints and Soldiers is one of the very best LDS-made movies I've seen so far but not one that I would recommend for young children, although 8 and up might be fine. The realities of war are definitely there, excluding vulgarity and nudity. The music, drama, and acting are all well done and not cheesy or patty-cake like some previous LDS movies.

It introduces the theme of LDS men serving opposing sides of war and the brotherhood that can cross the lines of the battlefield. But to me, the real impact of this movie comes as it does in all great moments, when an individual rises above himself to save another - something akin to the atonement. The particular soul worth saving provides yet another layer to this message of love - something that really made me think and feel. Very well done!!!

This is a good drama and it is done very well that it seems like you're watching a non-Mormon movie. A very moving story.

Although I am not a fan of war movies due to the crude language and violence, I enjoyed watching this movie. I purchased it after seeing a making of the film clip between conference sessions. The characters were compelling and the music added to the feel of the movie. I would recommend it.

Great movie!

Awesome movie. My husband and i have enjoyed adding this to our limited collection. It has action, drama, and a moral. Though I would add that this is not one we watch with our kids. There are scenes of intense situations and the like.

This was such an enjoyable movie. It was not overly powered by an LDS theme and what it did have was quite limited and pretty discreet. The movie is intense and has some pretty funny humor within it as well. All around, one I would recommend.

5 stars!!

Great movie! The 'LDS theme' of the movie was not over-powering. It perfectly fit faith into the story. It is very easily a great film on it's own merits. The filming is great, and it's touching to see the struggle that the characters go through. A must own.

A must have for those who like independent drama movies.

This movie was ahead of the pack in popular independent drama / comedy movies of today.

It is well made and follows an easy to follow plot line. It allows you to put yourself in the place of various characters and enjoy the lessons shared.

5 Stars!
