Defiance

The star of the latest James Bond, Daniel Craig is the lead billing of Defiance, a film set in the devastating backdrops of World War II. Daniel Craig plays Tuvia Bielski, an average man who becomes a hero by risking everything for the lives of others.

Based on the true story of the Bielski brothers, it involved a group of humble citizens turned militants as they took matters into their own hands as the Germans stormed their country of Poland in 1941. Leaving their homes, they headed to the forests in order to live off the land and balance the battle with the Nazis.

The story begins with the Bielski brothers, Tuvia (Daniel Craig), Zus (Li ev Schreiber), Asael (Jamie Bell) and Aron (George MacKay) discovering that their parents have been murdered by the local police. As they escape the authorities, they end up in the forests and form a band of freedom fighters as they attempt to thwart the Germans from either death or capture.

There is also an uneasy alliance amongst the brothers with Tuvia wanting to only evade the Germans, whereas the more strong headed brother Zus wants to make them pay for what they done to their parents and their country.

The movie is masterfully directed and contains some strong acting by all involved in a tale of hope and desperation that comes to a head when the winter months begin. The cinematography sets the story perfectly and only assists in drawing you into this deadly world of cat and mouse.

On DVD, the video quality is quite impressive with sharp images, vibrant colours and deep blacks that is matched with Dolby Digital 5.1 that sounds phenomenal in certain scenes in the movie.

Lastly, the DVD version contains some great extras from behind the scenes featurettes, interviews of who the Bielski brothers saved and a making of featurette.

In conclusion, Defiance is a rather heroic movie of a group of oppressed individuals which highlights their courage and determination and as it is based on a true story, it only makes the viewing that just more compelling.
