  • soniczny's rating of the film Shock Troops

    A little known masterpiece. World War 2:A group of French resistance fighters execute a carefully planned attack on German prison. In the course of attack they also free an extra prisoner. This plot is a great excuse for a barrage of eye-popping cinematography and editing techniques. However,the film’s esthetics does not feel excessive, the director complements the action with the portrayal of war full of integrity.
