Some good acting, but overall an oversympathetic, easy way out for the Nazis. Lets face it, the film never criticizes the Nazi soldiers...basically, it shows that they were forced, had no other option, etc., and that we should feel bad for Some good acting, but overall an oversympathetic, easy way out for the Nazis. Lets face it, the film never criticizes the Nazi soldiers...basically, it shows that they were forced, had no other option, etc., and that we should feel bad for them. the jews are mentioned only in passing by Hitler, and in the end, the film is overlong, monotonous, and nothing new in terms of its scenes of war. Besides that, one has to question the purpose of making a film that shows the fall of Hitler, if its insight is both dangerous and cryptic at the same time. Expand

This movie would be a revelation if it had humanized Hitler. But it didn't. Bruno Ganz' performance was uninspired. He's a great actor, but he doesn't do anything that strays far from cliche. A lot of yelling and sweating This movie would be a revelation if it had humanized Hitler. But it didn't. Bruno Ganz' performance was uninspired. He's a great actor, but he doesn't do anything that strays far from cliche. A lot of yelling and sweating and twitching. The only thing revelatory about the movie was the character of Goebbels and his wife; or rather, the performances of said characters by their actors. The movie was disappointing and almost pointless because the moviemakers created the movie on the assumption that the making of it would justify its existance. It didn't. There is no idea in this movie. It is just props. Try it again, Germany. Expand

An extremely tame and sanitised portrayal of Hitler's madness. Boring, absurd dialog, no passion, no intensity, not a hint of grit. Oh wait, it has subtitles so it must be masterpiece!
