    They stopped in The Bridge Too Far. This fact had already provoked grounds for some conspiracy hypotheses.

      Reality is that you were barely older than 35 in the active service,no?
      And an iconic actor such as Pitt,everybody knows he's 50.The same goes for J.Wayne,charging ragely on Iwo Jima at 75..

      After all,all of this is purely virtual.
      I was deployed to Iraq as a 36 year old PFC. Anything is possible.

        That actually happened in Helmand Province in Afghanistan in 2006/2007. But it was intentional and meant to draw out the enemy.

          My grandmother always said a cup of tea was good to fix a thousand different problems. Make that 1,001!
          "England expects that every man will do his duty!" (English crew members had better get ready for a tough fight against the combined French and Spanish fleets because that's what England expects! However, Scotland, Wales and Ireland appear to expect nothing so the Scottish, Welsh and Irish crew members can relax below decks if they like!)

            Indeed a troop of 4 Shermans could have charged down the road all on their own and saved the day....not.

            The Brits don't stop for a cup of tea, when stopped they have a cup of tea.

              • Just watched it,entertaining, in a sub Saveing Private Ryan kind of way.Lots of holes though,vanishing panzerfausts in the column,no infantry escort to hold crossroads in the dark etc.Smoke and flanking only used when they are nearly all dead.Poor ending,7.5 out of ten.

                • Any one know if the effects were CGI or did they actually blow uo some Shermans?Overall the CGI was pretty good and seamless.

                    Yes they blew up real Shermans with real actors inside them, that's wot made it the bestest war film... ever.
                    The long toll of the brave
                    Is not lost in darkness
                    Over the fruitful earth
                    And athwart the seas
                    Hath passed the light of noble deeds
                    Unquenchable forever.

                      Depending on who the actor was I might pay extra to see that.

                        That is more true than most non Brits know.

                        +1 when I get a chance.

                          Yep, and Nicolas Cage would be at the top of the list. For Windtalkers, Con Air and host of other movies.

                            Reminding me of Windtalkers does make me think much better of Fury.

                            Fury kept it's silliness to the end, but Windtalkers took what was potentially a solid story and turned it into overwrought Wooified nonsense.
