Blood & Gold(2023) review:excellent german film

As I watched the first ten minutes of Blood and Gold(2023), a war film on Netflix, I initially thought it might be the worst one ever made. However, I stuck with it and was pleasantly surprised. As the movie progressed, the plot became increasingly exciting, and I found myself enjoying it more and more. Set in post-war Nazi Germany, this action-packed German film shares similarities with “Inglourious Basterds” but on a smaller scale. It was created by German filmmakers, which would have been unthinkable just a decade ago. It’s refreshing to see this type of film produced outside of Hollywood.

Despite the fact that this style has been done before, the script is extremely well-written. The story builds throughout the film and never disappoints. The acting is superb, with each actor delivering memorable performances, particularly the lead characters. There’s not a dull moment from the first few frames until the end. The good guys are really good, the villains are hyper villainous, and the action is executed perfectly. Overall, I think this is one of the better movies on Netflix and I hope to see more films like this in the future.
