Battle of the low budget Bulge worth the watch with an open mind!

Wunderland is a film based in a time frame around the Battle of the bulge which itself was the last major German offensive campaign on the western front.

The film itself is based around a platoon defending against the German aggressors in the Ardennes Forrest in Belgium.

Directed by Steven Luke, it also stars Tom Berenger famouse for Platoon, Sniper and Born on the 4th of July - so he comes from good war movie stock - sadly his role in the film is limited, which may be a reflection on the small budget this film had, The budget must have been tiny, as you see the various troops roam around a 'could be anywhere' landscape with only several vehicles per side and some really cheap/Free(sic) special effects which is basically a snow filter layer on top of the video footage. Talking about snow and the period of the film, it is based at Christmas 1944 during one of Americas most brutal battles where they lost around 20,000 American soldiers, and the ice and snow had a tremendously huge impact on this period, foxholes could not be dug, tanks and traks struggled to traverse the land, infantry were frozen, malnurished and struggled to fight - not of this was strongly represented in this film, and for those looking for a casual war film you will have already stopped watching as the filtered snow effect was something you would see on a youtube amateur video rather than a historic war film depicting a story of bravery.

That being said, and armed with some historical knowledge I enjoyed the film - despite the actual footage being terribly short- and I would encourage people to watch it with an open mind and after doing some research.

Once the film has ended there is something on the scroll that 99% of people will never see - following the credits and lasting around 10 minutes, there are around 8-12 written stories of bravery of individual soldiers accomplishing Acts of bravery, and valour way beyond any call of duty and it is these historical, war and battle winning acts that make the film, and its evident on reflection the writer and director tried to use these examples in the storytelling of the film. I do wish the memorial stories had been voiced over and were added chronologically, but reading these certainly invoked a lot of emotion and its commendable that these untold stories are brought to light.

On a side note, the memorial stories would make a great 2hr chronological anthology film about the battles in the Ardennes -any budding director out that feeling enthused to make a film like that - please add me to the cast!

A film worth watching with an open mind, let down by a crippling budget 7/10

Seriously!!!!

Wunderland..... more like wonder why I bothered.... ok.. so i'm no expert on reviews and this is my first, so forgive me if I go astray. I must agree with most of the reviews here concerning Tom Berenger.. for him to appear in this so called "movie" was a huge mistake, he must have been desperately in need of money to even consider this. First of all for this to be such an epic battle the movie in my opinion is far too short at 85 minutes (considering the whole production of this it maybe at least 60 minutes too long). I have sat through cheap budget movies before but this man o man was one of the worst. The acting was terrible and don't even get me started on the fake snow.... One minute they are walking in snow and you can see their breath and then in the next scene they are driving across a field with no snow on the ground while snow is falling. I use the word "snow" very loosely here as you can tell 100% that the falling snow is fake and is digitally input in to the scene (very badly). You also see some kind of "red flash" move across the sky in one scene which I still don't know what it was supposed to be. I have given it 2 stars only because I like Tom Berenger and he was the only reason I even looked at this movie and to see him go from movies like Sniper to this "rubbish" is a real shame....

Sorry Tom but this one was a big mistake.... I could go on and on but I think you get the point... You're wasting your time if you watch this movie.... best avoid it..

Oh my....

This is my first review ever..

Came into this movie not expecting much and attracted that Tom was in it. But boy should I have lower my expectations even further. Yes uniforms/wardrobe props look good. But not to blame the acting too much, they did what they could but with director and writer not making it easier for them.. the conversations the clich├ęs of platoon life is laughable, the combat strategies and the nonexistent will to live given the positioning of germans and response to an ambush... Well next time maybe the director should do something that does not contain any kind of group dynamic as he struggles to make it seem real, seen lots of movies with bad acting but still the content made it better, in Wunderland its the opposite.
