Thoughts on Resistance

ThoughtsResistance is a tension war drama, that will show another incredible story of bravery against the Nazis and what they were trying to do to the world. This will show the importance of saving children who were left with nothing during the war and how the inexperienced fighters would stand up against a strict lieutenant who has no limits to the pain he is willing to cause. This may well end up being like countless other incredible stories from World War II, showing just how much people were willing to risk to do the right thing, to save lives without wanting to the fame that came with it. Jesse Eisenberg is great in the leading role, but it is Matthias Schweighofer haunting performance and delivery that will be the thing you remember most about this film.

Final Thoughts Resistance is another amazing story of bravery from World War II.
