Straight into Darkness ★½ 2004 (R)

Privates Losey (Francis) and Deming (MacDonald) go AWOL in Nazi-occupied France, eventually finding shelter at an abandoned hotel. The hotel also houses Deacon (Warner), Maria (Thorson), and a brood of orphans who have been trained to fight. The numerous flashbacks are confusing and the fate of the child soldiers is disturbing. 94m/C DVD .
