Reviews and UK-Release of Into The White alias Cross Of Honour

September 28th, 2012, 12:44PM– With the UK release date of Rupert Grint’s movie “Into The White / Cross of Honour” coming closer and closer, we are happy to share some lovely reviews with you. ITW/COH got some great responses in the UK and Rupert’s performance got praised.
First one was published by littlewhitelies.co:

“The performances are uniformly strong, though Rupert Grint wins best in show for his charismatic and unflappable Scouse darts champ who takes great joy in rubbing his severe German compatriots up the wrong way. His accent, too, is note perfect, and the film is a far better showcase for his performing talents than any of the Harry Potter films.”

Second one by cinemaroll.com

“The English side is pretty much told through the eyes of Gunner Robert Smith played by Rupert Grint. His role of over the top Liverpudlian, who strikes up an expected friendship, is a heart warming one.”

Of course Lachlan Nieboer, Florian Lukas, David Kross and Stig Henrik Hoff were giving a great performance, too. No wonder thehollywoodnews.com summed it up that way:

“What sets CROSS OF HONOUR apart is its performances; each and every one of the main five cast members excels, refusing to succumb to shallow stereotypes (though oft straying dangerously close). On the British side, upper class boy Lachlan Nieboer is Captain Davenport, accompanied by his working class Liverpudlian gunner Smith (Rupert Grint). Luckily, there’s no twaddle about class differences here: the pair play off each other succinctly. There is a war going on, after all. [...] Rupert Grint is the biggest name attached but certainly doesn’t steal the show (despite his fantastic accent) [...] But even then it’s hard to single one out when the entire principal cast does so well. CROSS OF HONOUR achieves in its human component what it fails to achieve in its story: a reason to watch.”
