For an Ed Zwick film, the director who never knows when to rein in the earnest proselytising, this is a surprisingly strong showing.
Only occasionally does his simplistic and somewhat trite sensibility appear amidst the believably brutal (based on fact) story of Jewish brothers surviving in the forests of Belarus during WWII. A wedding amidst CGI snow/confetti is intercut with a fierce battle, and a rousing victory ends the day (of course, this is Hollywood).
Daniel Craig is all firm-jawed nobility, leaving it to Liev Schreiber to walk away with most scenes as the confrontational, aggressive sibling. You just know they will reconcile. Jamie Bell gets the kid part.
