Clint Says: Watch this movie as soon as you can
This movie has it all. Espionage, sabotage, betrayal, escapes, near misses, courageous acts, and powerful, intelligent women. And it is all inspired by real events and real women during World War II.
If you are a fan of spy flicks this is a must-see. This is a film that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat and holding your breath for way too long. It is exciting and suspenseful from the opening scene all the way to the end credits.
Perhaps the best thing about this movie is that it doesn't sugar-coat or give an idealized version of what we all want our spies to be and act like. This is not James Bond stuff, this is based in reality. It's gritty, scary, and intense. It makes you think about what kind of special person it must take to become a spy, knowing that your life is on the line at all times.
This movie never hits a false note. Everything about the situations and the characters feels true and real. It is a fast-paced, high-adrenaline, feels-like-you-are-right-there-with-them movie.
You should watch this film this weekend. It will entertain you for sure, but it may also inspire you.
