Saints and Soldiers: Airborne Creed is 2012 American war drama movie that was directed by Ryan Little. It follows the story of a group of American paratroopers who are deployed behind enemy lines in Normandy during the Second World War in 1944. The movie was the third installment in the Saints and Soldiers film series after the original Saints and Soldiers (2003) and Saints and Soldiers: The Void (2014).

The film depicts the story of the airborne infantry mostly from a first-person perspective. It highlights the strict code of honor and bravery that these soldiers hold in their hearts. The movie portrays how dire circumstances cause bonds of brotherhood to form between soldiers. The events of the day are seen through the eyes of Corporal Gould (played by David Nibley), who's a parachute infantryman with the legendary 517th Parachute Regimental Combat Team. The platoon is comprised of soldiers from different backgrounds and struggles that all have one objective: to accomplish their mission successfully without getting captured by the Nazis.

The movie is set on September 17, 1944, the day that the Allies launched one of the biggest amphibious assault operations in history. The force of American paratroopers involved in Operation Market Garden was ordered to secure a critical bridge over the Rhine river in Holland. This bridge provided a strategic point of entry to the heart of the German army. After landing well off their objective, the small platoon must use their knowledge of the enemy's territory to fight Nazi soldiers who outnumbered them. Among their ranks is a medic with a troubled conscience reaching back to his civilian life.

As they move through enemy territory, the platoon encounters a stranded British SAS officer (Lincoln Hoppe), who holds vital information about the Nazis' plans for a new superweapon that could drastically change the course of the war. The platoon is tasked with leading this officer safely back to the allied lines. However, their journey is constantly threatened by the Nazis who are ferociously determined to prevent them from reaching their final destination with their captive in hand.

The story of Saints and Soldiers: Airborne Creed is captivating, and the director Ryan Little did an excellent job weaving the plot together. The depiction of the war-torn countryside and the Allies' challenges behind enemy lines feel incredibly real. The cast of the movie is also fantastic. The roles adorn little screen time to the characters' backstory, but the character-centric action and suspense are well balanced by eloquent performances.

The film's action scenes are realistic and keep the viewer connected to the story. The sound effects and visual effects are brilliant, and they add to the movie's exceptional realism.
