Schlocky War Movie
However, forget about those documents, because Ambush it’s a real popcorn movie. Don’t expect the most neat and serious historical film work from narvik: Saban Films clearly serves you better silly and explosive popcorn movie for. You won’t hear us complain, though: just the new trailer kicks off with lots of explosions, flying bullets, and other forms of action.
