Ten years ago, Canadian director Ryan Little gave us Saints and Soldiers, a modestly conceived, old-fashioned second world war movie about four American soldiers and a British Tommy struggling to rejoin their divisions in hostile territory after escaping the 1944 Malmedy massacre of Us PoWs by the SS during the Battle of the Bulge. Now Little has given us a sequel, with the same wholesome, Christian tinge, about American paratroopers dropped into France after D-Day and in roughly the same perilous situation. Little makes the best of a limited budget, and this is well-acted, especially by his leading man (and star of the previous film), Corbin Allred. But there is something weirdly inert about this film, a kind of diet or lite version of Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan.
