Awesome i loved every bit. you didnt know what was coming around the corner with Hitler around!!!!
I feel as if I met Hitler.
probably one of the best ww2 movies of all time
the best movie off the end off the thierd ri
This is certainly one of the best movies that I’ve seen. From the casting, directing and above all, the acting, this movie is magnificent. I am not a movie nut; I watch about 2 or 3 movies a month. The reason is so many movies are unmemorable and make me feel that I’ve wasted my time, either because I was not entertained, did not learn anything or was not moved in any way – this movie does it all. As a matter face, this movie has impressed me so much that I am writing this review. One other thing, I think that the actress that played Magda Goebbels, Corinna Harfouch, was perfect for the role. She is also HOT.
very nice move. must see, realistic showing the final days not only as white and black but based on truth and eyewitness accounts
one of the best WW2 movies that i`ve watched so far.a collector`s item,no doubt.....
what`s that famous phrase: "the banality of evil?" This film shows the humanity of evil! Ordinary men surrounded by the fruits of their cult of personality. One of my professors used to say of Hitler: "he vas neither a nationalist OR a socialist!" Ths is woefully apparent in this film...in the end, he could care less about the German people.
Finally a movie worth watching!
very well made, from start to finish.. gives a glimpse into the ww2 era... a must buy
Es war sehr gut. This movie made me feel like I was standing right beside Hitler, Speer, Braun and Gobbels themselves. It was fantastic.
AMAZING, SIMPLY AMAZING!! A MUST SEE!!!
I thought they did a great job with portraying the last days of Hitler; very realistic film.
I am fan of second world war epidosdes, and read lot on Hitler.I had been to Canada recently where I saw advertisements in news papers.Unfortunately I could not spare time to watch because of tight schedule.But I have read good reviews on this.I have seen ODESSA FILES,SCHINDLERS LIST ,TORA TORA TORA ETC....on world war-II.I would surely see this movie.I have been trying in India since then, So far I am not succeded to get DVD of this movie.I am trying best to get it.
I don`t think you can "overdo" portraying someone as evil or bad when he`s personally responsible for (read: ordered) the deaths of over 6 million people. JMO.
I loved the film. The acting and casting were both superb. I`m part German and while I don`t support what the Nazis did, I`m sick of seeing films that focus on Hitler only as a bad person. Don`t get me wrong he was a bad guy, but Hollywood directors tend to overdo it. Costumes were great, good to see a mix of regulars, fallschirmjager and panzergrenadiers in there. Very depressing, grey film, then again that`s what it was like.
Excellent! A film that presents a factual account without moralising it. Well researched and real effort put into small details, e.g. Body guard units using Stg 44`s. Good mixture of uniforms , as was the case in the Berlin defense. The acting was first class - better than anything to come out hollywood in decades. I`m so glad that hollywood didn`t make this film! I recomend it highly to all those interested in WWII and history. The best period drama I`ve ever seen.
EXCELLENT FILM! GO SEE IT!! Powerful and confronting and well worth veiwing.
It angered me that he didnt have a more tortured death but it was a must see movie
Bruno Ganz was mesmerizing!
The movie stays with you long after you leave the theatre.
It was a surreal experience. A very impressive film.
Downfall was an impressive film with true artistic merit as it portrays the NAZI leadership with tangible human depth of character that is often lacking in portrayals and accounts
Very well done! Historically very accurate. I was a little disspointed that the Soviet War crimes scenes that I saw in a european trailer didnt seem to make it into the NOrth American cut. I would be very inetersted to know why. Other than that it get %88 or an A for accuracy.
downfall...hmmmmm....i wish i had taken some cyanide before i saw this film..don`t get me wrong..it was very well acted,and the end result is more than any person could hope for.Could I have reviewed this in 60 words or less?...(definately)but like director Oliver Hirschbieger I like to drag things on,and on ,and on.The only thing I got from this movie was what to have for dinner(pasta),minus the gunshot to the head.
I hope this is the last WWII movie I ever see. Good acting (Hitler).
Historically accurate, magnificently directed and impressively acted.
Better off watching World at War narrated by Laurence Olivier.
It feels like you are trapped in there with the rest of the nazis. Exceptional.
was very realistic in its presentation of the insanity og Hitler and all the Nazis.The acting was excellent and if one is interested in WW2, movie was very well done looking at last days of those moronic idiots.
I just saw Downfall. I could not take my eyes off the screen. My stomach was in a knot. The girl Traudl says she feels as though she is in a dream and cannot wake up. Things seem surreal. The surreal part is the people doing their every day thing--eating, going about their work--while Hitler vacsillates between mad hope of fantasy troops to save him with lucid moments that depict acceptance of the reality that the end is near, controlling his end by suicide and a promise from a follower to assure that his mortal ends will never be found by anyone especially the Russians. He also proudly states what he has left for posterity--a Germany w
