One of the worst movies ever .

Had to turn off after first 10 minutes, Beret's and uniform were completely wrong, 5 minutes with any adviser would have fixed most problems.

This film is nowhere near the same tier as Saving Private Ryan or Downfall, but it kept me very entertained and left me surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

Three of us watched it last night and we can be quite critical, especially of war movies, but we all enjoyed it and while the plot and aspects of the story could have been stronger and the summary at the end of the film really only adds a historical context which is tenuous at best to the story that preceded it, this is well worth seeing and something of which all who were involved in it can be proud of.

Well acted and scripted, this action entry into the WW 2 genre not made by Hollywood, is gripping and maintains the same high standards of the films that came out in the 1960's and 70's.

Action Packed War Movie.

Enjoyable film!

Don't waste your time on this garbage.

There is an action scene about half way through this movie which is one of the most exciting I've seen in recent memory!

I won't speak of the ending, sooooo predictable.

Directing was pathetic, story line predictable, shooting substituted for dialogue.

It contains all the clichés (All American hero stages a remarkable recovery from near fatal infection, comedy German accents and heroic French peasant popping up the stairs to save the day, trite dedication at the end credits) and corny dialogue.

a typical self-indulgent masturbation that only served to the winning side.

While this movie has some notable historical inaccuracies and "dumb enemy syndrome," it is an exciting and action-packed movie that most fans of war films will enjoy.

I have to say, I was rather touched by some particularly emotional scenes including, Matt Willis', (who was brilliant by the way) and Chris Reilly's also, but I was on the edge of my seat throughout, and the amazing soundtrack made sure of that!

The most offensive thing was after watching movie cliché SS acts of violence the producers of the film dedicated the film to the men and women on both sides of the war???

Tense, exciting and really well filmed.

you will likely be in for a entertaining ride.

"Allies" is an exciting, action-packed war movie that can be very enjoyable if you can get over the fact that it is rather ludicrous and predictable.
