Synopsis:
Based on the bestseller by Stephen E. Ambrose, this critically acclaimed, award-winning mini-series follows the epic adventures of Easy Company, 506th Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division, U.S. Army. Drawn from interviews with survivors of Easy Company, as well as soldiers' journals and letters, Band Of Brothers chronicles the experiences of these men who knew extraordinary bravery and extraordinary fear. They were an elite rifle company parachuting into France early on D-Day morning, fighting in the Battle of the Bulge and capturing Hitler's Eagle's Nest at Berchtesgarten.
Recreated with stunning special effects and the second collaboration between Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg, the series is both a profound and captivating look at the reality of war.

Out of this world! - Band of Brothers review by Laney

Spoiler Alert
31/10/2007

This programme, is easily one of the best things I have ever watched. It is eye-opening, beautiful, graphic,and poignant.

The cast are all amazing, regardless of what you thought of them previously, it looks fantastic, the music is brill..... I could go on and on! (I'm not being paid-honest!!!)

Having also read the book, it is factually on the money, which is always a bonus!

Not really sure what else to say, other than watch it-you will not regret it and you will watch it again and again!!!!! Also watch the bonus features on the last disc, I usually don't bother, but there is a short film about the real men of Easy Company and its very emotional!!

Watchable Mini-series, but rather one-sided - Band of Brothers review by PV

Spoiler Alert
05/11/2011

I think this series is well-filmed and acted, but, to be honest, I preferred The Pacific, made years later by the same team. Why? Well, perhaps because the Pacific war was largely Americans fighting; whereas, the fighting in Europe was not - though Band or Brothers and all other American films try to make out that WWII as Germany V the USA! I understand that the whole focus has to be on a few men, but, nevertheless, I think it's wrong and somewhat offensive to do that - especially since the USA didn't even enter the war until over 2 years after Britain had been fighting! There are a couple of moments in this where things that go wrong are blamed on 'limeys' - despite the massive sacrifice of the British and Canadians at Arnhem and elsewhere. As always, the Brits are ONLY ever portrayed as upper class twit officers, except for one mockney private! I think that those who are not very educated about WWII will be misinformed by this TV mini-series really, and that's a shame and wrong. I did however like the well-filmed scenes and also the muddy morals of it all: US soldiers looting, and casually killing Germans who surrendered, for example, and drunken yanks crashing cars after the war's end. But I still preferred The Pacific as a drama. I thought the ending was great though - not the usual American saccharine sentimentalism.

Schwimmer surprise - Band of Brothers review by JD

Spoiler Alert
25/05/2009

I could have done without the immodest prologue from the veterans. I was however taken back by Schwimmer's acting. About as different as conceivable from the "canned laughter every 4 seconds" that we are used to. Very believable and at times intimidating to watch. Some of the other acting however was on a level with Bilko. Generally however emotional and compelling.
