Saints and Soldiers

This World War II adventure has an almost religious faith in the power of stereotypes: among the American GIs trapped behind enemy lines are a lumbering Cajun, a streetwise tough from Brooklyn, a gruff but supportive sergeant, and an angel-faced Mormon sharpshooter. Having barely escaped the famous massacre of prisoners at Malmedy, they head back toward Allied ground and along the way pick up a British soldier carrying vital information about an upcoming attack. The performances vary from good (nicely troubled Corbin Allred) to shaky (Alexander Niver and Kirby Heyborne, whose accents keep sliding). There's an uplifting message about heroism, dispensed in dialogue so familiar you can practically lip-synch it. Directed by Ryan Little. PG-13, 90 min.
