Can't speak for the rest of Germany, but I don't care if the Germans are the baddies, and especially not in WW II films. They deserved to be the baddies there.
(And I'm looking forward to Inglorious Basterds, which most likely will be a fantastic film, as all the good and also all the bad reviews indicate.)
Both films have a great cast, and both seemed to have an interesting basic idea, but then nothing interesting happens.
I've read btw a few MacLean novels as a child, and they were all unsatisfying. Where Eagles Dare was one of them. Still I had expectations for the film, alas it was a dead film for me.
