Downfall is not exceptional

5 second plot: This is the story of the final days of Hitler and his close followers.

5 second review: I don't really understand why anyone would find this movie exceptionally good. It's not bad, and the horrific story about the war is one that can't be told too often, but not taking the intentional emotional shocks (the killing of the children...) into account, I wasn't overwhelmed by it. Maybe it's because I knew that part of our history already very well.

IMDb score: 8,3/10
Our score: 6/10
