Set during World War II, the film follows a group of paratroopers from the 517th Parachute Regimental Combat Team who are dropped behind enemy lines in southern France. Their mission is to disrupt German supply lines and prepare the way for the Allied invasion of Normandy.
As the team navigates through enemy territory, they encounter various obstacles and challenges, and must rely on their training and camaraderie to survive.
The film received mixed reviews, with praise for its impressive cinematography and action sequences, as well as its depiction of the heroism and sacrifice of American soldiers during World War II. However, some critics found the characters and dialogue to be clichéd and predictable.
“Saints and Soldiers: Airborne Creed” is a well-made war film that delivers on its promise of thrilling action and emotional drama, but may not offer much in terms of originality or depth.
