So well done and a great homage to the men who served. Brilliant and kudos to two amazing producers.

Worth the watch. The only problem is the usual problem I have with these kind of stories: WHICH CHARACTERS ARE WHICH????? Seriously, I could hardly tell these men apart. Other than that, one can see to beginnings of several famous actors' careers: Tom Hardy, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, and Simon Pegg. All of these actors are very talented and it's nice to see where they started. The stories are riveting, even if YOU CAN'T TELL WHO THEY ARE, the action is top notch, the shaky camera actually is done very nice and doesn't distract, and it feels like your there and that those wounds really hurt. But it is possible to notice they use the same town/village set for multiple scenes; it is only noticeable if you know what to look for. If you loved Saving Private Ryan, you'll definitely love Band of Brothers.

They try to make this war story look like real life. It is a 10 series story. There is an interview with veterans who were actually in the war attached to the disk.

a panegyric to those, mostly kids, who fought to save Europe - extraordinary

Rare to see big-budget big ensemble cast mini-series these days.
Dark & somber.
Tough love boot camp for the actors.

Terrific series which compels one to examine the differences between the society, mentality, and patriotism of the WWII era versus today. I would recommend that this series be viewed by high school seniors in order that they understand the sacrifices made so that they can live in peace and safety in our nation.

An excellent miniseries of American help freeing some of Europe. Superb acting, set up, scenery. The scenes of the labour camps and of Austria are horrifically real.
This movie will stay with you for a long time.

This is my most favourite show of all time. Band of Brothers gave me a strong love for military personnel and military history. I can barely put into words how much this show means to me (and yes, it does sound a little drastic, but still) of how it showed me the bond between brothers in arms. Thumbs up to Mr Hanks and Mr Spielberg for this amazing show. This is definitely a 10/10! Lest we forget. Nous Resterons. We Will Remain.

I've heard of 'Band of Brothers' but I wasn't interested in watching it for a while until my Uncle told me about it. Oh my goodness this is a good show! Yes just like any war film there is a lot of graphic scenes of war and tunes of cursing but it also captured the disappointment, fear, physical struggles and heart ache of world war 2. I also liked how each episode started with the actually men sharing about what that episode was about. There is also a great cast of actors, it seemed like everyone was in it! I really like the music too. This is worth watching.

This is a 2001 American-British war drama miniseries based on historian Stephen E. Ambrose's 1993 non-fiction book of the same name.
The series dramatizes the history of the "Easy" Company (part of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division) from jump training in the United States through its participation in major actions in Europe, and up until Japan's capitulation and war's end.
The events portrayed are based on Ambrose's research and recorded interviews with Easy Company veterans.
All of the characters portrayed are based on members of Easy Company.
Some of the men were recorded in contemporary interviews, which viewers see as preludes to each episode.
The men's identities are not revealed until the finale.
It is a 705-minute docu-drama, thorough which you might be able to experience the ugliness of the European war as a member of the Easy Company.
