Audience Reviews for Verboten!


it's not subtle but then it wouldn't be fuller. who else could score WW2 with beethoven's ninth and wagner's ride of the valkyries? the hero seems too naive and the change of heart finale a little abrupt but there are some great scenes here, especially among the 'werewolves'. well done intercutting of newsreel footage helps with authenticity, including a few scenes from the death camps so beware
