    It is interesting to read fairy tails but not when they are presented
    as historical facts. I am the central director for the Hungarian
    Gendarmerie (Csendor) Veterans Organization and I am appalled by this
    film. The film’s negative stereotype depiction of the csendors goes
    even beyond the distorted propaganda films of the communist era. The
    film shows a total disregard for the truth. If csendors were to have
    behaved as was shown in the film, they would not only have been
    discharged from the gendarmerie but would have been imprisoned. The
    depiction of the csendors in every respect is incorrect. It is clear
    that Mr.DeMercur has no knowledge of the functioning of the csendors
    yet he has the gall to write such tripe as Chosen. It is offensive and
    an insult to Hungary, Hungarians, and the historical truth.

    a Well-made war drama

    A very interesting story during the war. It might be a hidden history
    that we have never learned or heard about some of unidentified heroes
    during the world war 2. Lots of people are wounded, hurt and dead
    during this awful period, but also lots of people who were unknown for
    their heroic actions, have saved their country and people. While I was
    watching this movie, I realized that the real hero in the history were
    the survivors. Through the world worst history, they have continued to
    make their own history which can change our live today. I hope all of
    you can feel the same feeling that I’ve learned by watching this story
    and I highly recommend to watch this amazing movie.

    More relevant today than ever before…

    I saw this movie with my girlfriend in LA and we both thought it was a
    cool WW2 movie, beautifully shot and skilfully directed with a large
    ensemble of actors who all delivered convincing performances. We felt
    deeply moved by its human story of true love in times of war and it
    just strikes the perfect balance between our main character’s inner
    turmoil of emotions, against the mercilessly brutal outer world. I
    haven’t heard of this director, but he did some great work with the
    performances, the action scenes and with the sound. The music in
    particular is just heart breaking. Do not miss the chance to see this
    movie on the big screen! It’s more relevant today then ever before!

    Heroism disrespected.

    Can’t remember the last time a movie left me feeling so angry. Here we
    had a tale of heroism during WW2, a story which deserved to be told.
    What we got was a rushed, ill thought out, poorly acted, badly directed
    mess. Let’s start with the obvious; the action is set in Hungary and
    Poland and yet the whole thing is done in English. This lost all
    authenticity at the first sign of US/UK accents. Then, when
    impersonating a German Officer the main character loses his British
    accent and launches into a ”Ve have vays ov making you talk” German
    accent. Ludicrous. Another thing, one moment we are told he is a quiet
    guy who keeps to himself, next minute the resistance are in his home
    asking for his help, then suddenly he’s there in full German regalia.
    Where did that come from then? No explanation. The Hungarian soldiers
    are then treated like some kind of keystone cop characters when they
    had the female prisoners. Unbelievable. The actors conveyed no sense of
    danger or desperation or anger or determination throughout. The whole
    thing seemed rushed and condensed to the point where it made no sense.
    This could have been good and indeed should have been good. It isn’t,
    it’s woeful. Heroism disrespected.

    Absolutely marvellous film. Beware of negative reviews from Csendor sympathisers

    My wife and I found this film to be absolutely extraordinary. This film
    has an amazing plot and was excellently produced. We also noticed that
    people whose family members committed atrocities during World War Two
    have been trying very hard to demolish the quality of this film in
    their reviews. People should be aware of the crimes of the Hungarian
    Csendors before the outbreak of WW2. People should witness the history.
    In Novi Sat, Subotica, Vojvodina, among other places, the Csendor
    massacred a great number of Serbs, Communists and Jews, with Hitler’s
    backing. The Csendor were an integral part of the Nazi killing machine.
    They loyally picked up Jewish people in the villages and put them on
    the animal train into Auschwitz. The authorities should take action
    against Csendor sympathisers to stop their effort to whitewash history.
