What Did Critics Think of 2009 Film “Iron Cross”?

Posted on August 27, 2012 - Filed Under Uncategorized | Comments Off

The movie “Iron Cross” starring the late Roy Scheider was released in 2009. Scheider played a retired New York police officer named Joseph. He’s thrust into his past when he travels to Nuremberg, Germany to mend fences with his son he had previously rejected. The argument was because his son had an opportunity to become a New York City policeman just like Joseph, and turned it down. While at the apartment of his son and daughter-in-law, directtelevisionpackages.com, Joseph feels living above them is the former SS Commander who murdered his entire family in a forest during World War II. Joseph talks his son into working with him to kill the upstairs neighbor who is living under the false name of Shrager. The story is told with a variety of flash-back sequences that enable the audience to understand the power of Joseph’s emotions. The movie received generally good reviews and brought in a reasonable $30,000,000 at the box office. The most common praise was the intensity that Roy Scheider brought to the Joseph character. Others felt the irony of going to see a son in Germany and having the SS commander that murdered your family live above him was a bit of a stretch. Unfortunately Roy Scheider passed away during the filming of the movie. There are a few scenes where it’s obvious some creative filming had to take place in order to accommodate for this loss.
