Defiance-pic-review

Defiance is an R-rated 2008 action drama history film directed by Edward Zwick and written by him and Clayton Frohman. Some of Mr. Zwick’s popular films include The Last Samurai (my review here), Blood Diamond, Legends of The Fall, Glory and Traffic along with many others. The film tells the true story of the Bielski partisans, a group led by Polish Jewish brothers who saved Jews in Belarus during the Second World War. It is an adaptation of Nechama Tec’s book Defiance: The Bielski Partisans. It’s an incredible story of how these brothers rescued and protected so many Jews in the forest from the Germans. I strongly believe that this is Daniel Craig’s best performance of his career. His Bond character vanishes as he completely becomes Polish Jew, Tuvia Bielski, fighting for the survival of his people.

This is our blog’s first review. As mentioned in the welcome post, there is no order to the reviews we will post. Whatever we watch we will write a review about it.

The Last Samurai is a 2003 film. This is perhaps my fourth or fifth time watching this film. It never gets old or boring. I really enjoy watching this film because of how much I respect and admire the Japanese and their way of life back then and even today.
