Saints and Soldiers Full Watch Online, Just as it is, “Saints and Soldiers” may have been built in 1948. This is not a bad thing. Without the hi-tech special effects to increase the noise level, a traditional war has strong and clean lines of that movie. I saw the same week with Sam Fuller’s new “The Big Red One” (1980) restoration made by a director who was an infantry manager during the Second World War and shot in a similar tone of voice. One job of a foot soldier is to avoid being killed. Doing your job is a close second.
The film is inspired by real events. Six months after the Normandy occupation, we are talking about an American military massacre in Malmedy in Belgium; The Nazis opened fire on US prisoners and many were killed, but four people could have lost themselves in the surrounding forest.
