Arch Campbell Show: 'The Monuments Men' has great cast, gets three stars

(WJLA) - As Hitler retreated from France during World War II, the U.S. recruited a group of art historians to find the masterpieces plundered by the Nazis. 'The Monuments Men' tells this story with a loud, clear message.

George Clooney puts his personal stamp on the story as both star and director, with a great cast that includes Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, John Goodman, and Bill Murray.

Sometimes things get a little preachy and sentimental, but then again, this really happened and it’s a good story to know. Worth 3 stars and a PG-12 rating.

The Monuments Men is a weekend best bet, along with American Hustle, 12 Years a Slave, and Nebraska.
