Okay, but seemed like a TV movie, cheesy F/X. Yes, this Hitler was no Bruno Ganz (RIP). But neither did Tukur have the force of personality to convey Rommel's historic stature, he came off like a nice guy who happened to be a great military tactician. Prefer James Mason in "The Desert Fox" ...Read more

James Mason in this role is certainly a classic. and not to be discounted. Rommel was clearly much more of a brilliant General, than he ever was a devoted follower of Hitler...

At 5'6", Rommel was shorter than Hitler (5'9"). The incessant bickering among the general staff was well portrayed. And I suppose this movie was based on Speidel's 1950 book on Rommel and the Normandy campaign.

They could have cast a more imposing and believable Hitler. Other than that, it was pretty good.

Moving and sad tribute to a great general. Well played by the lead actor Ulrich Tukur. Never even heard of him before but he made a great impression. I was struck by the spectacular uniforms of the Wehrmact brass. I am sure they were authenticated accurately. Also enjoyed the accuracy of the ...Read more
