Stereotypical British?


I am always amazed by the certainty of the reviews/comments posted. Just where does User dbborroughs get his knowledge from. How can he comment that this film shows stereotypical British attitudes to battle, rather than reality? Was he there?
We Brits have lost plenty of battles, but rarely have to search out a toilet.

Agree wholeheratedly.. What does he expect soldiers surrounded and ounumbered to do? Run around waving their arms shouting "We're done for"? I don't recall seeing any of that behaviour from "typically American" characters in Saving Private Ryan or Band of Brothers or The Longest Day, so why is calm acceptance so unfamiliar to him?
