Germany, May 1945, the twilight of WWII. On a final mission deep in the Harz mountains a U.S. tank crew discovers a platoon of Germans, including three infamous Panzer tanks, preparing to ambush allied supply trucks.
Before the war, Sergeant Jesse Owens, was a product of segregation and racial discrimination. Forced by law to ride in the back of the bus and disenfranchised from the political process. As the Germans bear down on the Americans, Owens fights the Axis powers for a freedom he and his fellow African American soldiers have never felt.
With a deadly game of cat and mouse quickly unfolding, Owens and his predominantly white tank crew find themselves out-gunned and out-manned by the German Panzer tanks. Several in Owens’ crew are reluctant to put their faith in a black tank driver despite their dire circumstances. With tension and fear beginning to manifest Owens knows they must put aside their differences to stop the enemy from their deadly plan. Knowing that a victory over the Nazis means a victory for racial justice, Owens and his men find a way to work together to save hundreds of lives in a desperate battle against the greatest odds they have ever faced.
In my opinion:
Honestly, I was a little bored at the beginning but once I got to know the characters, I was hooked. The actors were amazingly real. I don't know why I never saw the first two Saints & Soldiers films. This was the first Saints & Soldiers DVD I viewed and I was quite impressed.
I felt bad for Owens because he faced a lot of racial discrimination even in his own crew. However, the team came together to fight against the German Panzer tanks. Jesse Owens was my hero. He had the courage to stand up for himself and I loved his determination.
Very well made!!! I definitely recommend Saints & Soldiers: The Void and I will be watching the first two movies. "God speed."
