HART’S WAR Bruce Willis, Colin Farrell (2002, MGM, 125 mins., R, also on DVD) As the highest-ranking Yank in a Nazi POW camp, Willis gives one of his clenched, stoic, ”serious actor” performances. But even that is wasted motion in a genre muddle that starts in Stalag 17 mode, slaps on a simplistic racial conflict, then mutates into a speechifying courtroom drama, before closing with a tepid Great Escape action-flick finale. The credits list two screenwriters, but this feels like the work of twice that many — all trying to tell a different story.
