Storyline

Based on a well-known Polish novel with the same title the movie re-tells a true life story of a group of scouts called ''Szare Szeregi'' (Gray Ranks) during the Nazi occupation of Warsaw and the liberation of one of its members (imprisoned and tortured by the Germans) through a maverick military action in board daylight right under the enemy's nose known ''Action at the Arsenal'' which was the biggest single feat of the sort undertaken by a youth resistance organisation in all of occupied Europe during WWII.

Starts promisingly but deteriorates into poorly made schlock and torture-porn
3 January 2018 | by wolfstar_imdbSee all my reviews

A betrayal of the real story as told in the book - simply a poorly made film, not only does it fail to craft characters well or tell a compelling story (unbelievably so given the rich source material), it rapidly descends into gratuitous, laughably over-the-top torture-porn that seems to want to whip up a sense of aggrievedness and instill a worldview of fetishized, exalted victimhood in Polish viewers. Mostly though, it's just exceedingly boring. An atrocious piece of work that's a slap in the face for the real Warsaw Uprising heroes.
