 That doesn'​t mean the movie is boring, because it is not.  On the contrary, at the end you will want to know more about this team that most people weren'​t aware they existed until they entered in theater. ​  There is a detective story atmosphere in the film, making us to worry for the fate of the stolen art. And that is what it makes this movie really successful: It conveys a strong message even for our current-day society. That doesn'​t mean the movie is boring, because it is not.  On the contrary, at the end you will want to know more about this team that most people weren'​t aware they existed until they entered in theater. ​  There is a detective story atmosphere in the film, making us to worry for the fate of the stolen art.

 We have today modern heroes that preserves our World Cultural Heritage in war zones like Iraq and Afghanistan.((Bacon,​ Lance M. (February 17th 2014. 6 a.m.). “U.S. troops saved art as the '​Monuments Men' of Iraq: U.S. experts work to save a culture”. Army Times. On-line in http://​www.armytimes.com/​article/​20140217/​NEWS/​302170033/​U-S-troops-saved-art-Monuments-Men-Iraq)) ​ However, and likewise in the movie, that is not always enough to preserve our heritage sites during armed conflicts around the world. Just taking a look of what is happening nowadays in Afghanistan,​ Libya, or Syria is disheartening.((Sage,​ Alexandria. (August 29th 2013. 4:23 a.m.). “Syria'​s cultural heritage being looted, destroyed: UNESCO”. Reuters, Paris. On-line in http://​www.reuters.com/​article/​2013/​08/​29/​us-syria-crisis-unesco-idUSBRE97S15I20130829)) ​ For that reason stronger efforts should be done, in order to keep all historical places around the globe safe. After all, Art and History is what defines us as humans. And that is the most important message of the movie to us in the twenty-first century. In that sense, the movie is a brave voice among people'​s conformation,​ who prefers to turn away, before facing the problem. We have today modern heroes that preserves our World Cultural Heritage in war zones like Iraq and Afghanistan.((Bacon,​ Lance M.
