It’s been a while since I saw Ryan Little’s surprisingly good 2003 low-budget WWII movie “Saints and Soldiers”, but from just a glance at his filmography, it looks like he’s done well for himself since, with a string of movies to his credit. All that success has, ironically enough, led him back to WWII with “Saints and Soldiers: Airborne Creed”, a pseudo sequel to the 2003 movie. There’s a release date, but I doubt if the film will get too wide of a release. Which is a shame, because the theatrical trailer looks pretty damn good, especially since we’re not talking about “Saving Private Ryan” budgets here. I’ll be shock if Little and company had 1% of what Spielberg had to work with.
On August 15, 1944 the 517th Parachute Regimental Combat Team (PRCT) jumped over the south of France. Their mission was to support and protect the Allied Troops marching to Berlin. Landing in enemy territory, they fell under immediate attack. In their effort to complete the mission and rendez-vous with their unit, three isolated paratroopers come across a group of French resistants in desperate need. They decide to help liberate some of the captive Partisans. Doing so they risk their lives in an effort to live the AIRBORNE CREED.
The film stars Corbin Allred, David Nibley, Jasen Wade, Lincoln Hoppe, Nichelle Aiden and Virginie Fourtina Anderson.
