You watch quite a few military/war films, don't you? The Bridge is probably too ordinary or clichéd for a typical war-film watcher.

If you want a similar premise but with a bit more action and perhaps a better dramatic flair, try 71: Into the Fire. It's a South Korean film that revolves around a bunch of schoolboys defending a location. It has its flaws, but I found it rather entertaining. And *ahem* sad, of course, as it's based on a true story as well.
Yes, I do. Well remembered. I don't think I felt that it was cliched. exactly. After all lots of war films have their predictable tropes. Everyone knows that the bloke who talks about what he'll do 'when this madness is over' gets the chop in the next scene, for example.

I should probably give it another try.
