2 out of 10 Tempted to turn it off!
Tim from Cork, 07 Sep 2011
I've never not watched a film to the end no matter how bad it was but I've never been more tempted than about 15mins into this mess. Bad acting, terrible continuity and a god awful script destroyed this film that had a decent plot, a support cast that pulled their weight and the occassional moment of visual magic. All fingers of blame must point to the director who has a fairly good track record. The biggest issue I have is that it was almost good, at least if it was bad it may have had a chance at being so bad it was good. It just felt slightly off throughout

4.5 out of 10 Defiance
karen from Kilkenny, 20 May 2009
Based on a true story, this is a gripping film. Its extremely well acted (Daniel Craig speaking fluent Polish & Russian in particular) and although it shows the horrors of Nazi-ism and anti-semitism it seems to be much more subdued than many other films and therefore not as hard to watch.

1 out of 10 Daniel can do so much better!
marie from Westmeath, 08 Sep 2010
Thoroughly disappointing. Daniel Craig looks great but appeared as uncomfortable as his supporting cast. The story is a great one but it was hard to sustain feelings of horror or fear as the movie progressed. The dialogue was truly dreadful at times.

3 out of 10 Bleak & Gritty
Conor from Louth, 18 Jul 2009
A tragic true story of the harrowing journey of a group of Belarusian nomads, being hunted down by the nazis and their own russian police force. Accents are a big bogey at times but it doesn't take away from what is a good film.

5 out of 10 Defiance
Frances from Clare, 17 Jul 2009
Based on the remarkable true story of the Bielski Partisans. A group of Belarus Jews who survived living rough in the forest until the end of WW11. Absolutely remarkable even with Daniel Craig. Highly Recommended

What's it about....
Three Jewish brothers (Craig, Schreiber and Bell) escape from Nazi-occupied Poland into the Belarussian forest, where they join Russian resistance fighters and endeavor to build a village in order to protect themselves and others in danger.
