Heidi’s Illustrious Rating: 2
Word of Warning: Too long, too many clichÃ©s, not enough heart.
With an inspiring name and all-star cast, “Defiance” fails to deliver on what it promises. The film is wrongly titled, wrongly cast and unfortunately, just plain dull. It is based on the true story of four Polish-Jewish brothers during World War II, who escape the Nazis by hiding out in the heavily wooded forests of Poland. As time goes on, other Jews seeking escape from Nazi brutality join the brothers and the group continues to grow as word of the hidden forest camp spreads.
