Hart’s War


Director Gregory Hoblitā€™s film has the trappings of those old P.O.W. movies they used to make, but also a theme that wouldnā€™t have been treated properly in the 1960s. Racism rears its ugly head when two black pilots arrive in a German P.O.W. camp during WWII; one of them is court-martialed when a white prisoner is found murdered. How can you fight fascism when your own troops are racist? Slickly produced, fairly engaging and well constructed, this drama also boasts good performances all around. Its length takes the edge off it, though.Ā 

2002-U.S. 125 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Gregory Hoblit. Screenplay: Billy Ray, Terry George. Novel: John Katzenbach. Cast: Bruce Willis (William McNamara), Colin Farrell (Tom Hart), Terrence Howard (Lincoln Scott), Cole Hauser, Marcel Iures, Linus Roacheā€¦ Sam Worthington.

Trivia: Edward Norton and Tobey Maguire were allegedly considered for the part of Hart.
