    I guess it was so hyped up and won Golden Globes, etc. that I was expecting too much.

    Quite possibly the greatest movie I have ever seen. Its a rare feat when the excitement created by the trailer pales in comparison to the main event. The movies crescendo was so spectacular I almost cried, despite having already seen it in the trailer. Cannot wait to see it again and really wish it was being shown on bigger screens in my area.

    1917 was...phenomenal. This film is a stunning technical achievement seamlessly linking a series of long takes into a final product that appears to be almost entirely one continuous shot. If that weren't enough the film is shot by cinematography god Roger Deakins and therefore looks consistently amazing despite the limitations of having to maintain such long takes. I'll be very surprised if this film isn't at least nominated for Best Cinematography at the Oscars if not Best Picture. The story is very simple but fits the long take approach perfectly, two British soldiers are tasked with delivering orders to stop a massacre of their forces. Much like Dunkirk, this is a race against time, and we see every heart-racing minute of the journey as the two soldiers LCpl's Schofield & Blake are brought to life thanks to great performances by George MacKay & Dean-Charles Chapman respectively. The film's not perfect, there are a few minor issues I had with some plot contrivances and a Lee-Enfield that fires far more rounds than it should hold. The nature of the film also prevents significant character development, though I think we get enough to identify with the characters' regardless. Overall, I found 1917 to be a beautiful depiction of the ugliness of war and a heart-wrenching examination of the incredible lengths men will go to for one another when the chips are down. See it in IMAX if you can. 10/10 Brotherhood over Glory

    Incredible cinematography, directing, writing, and acting. You'll be holding your breath throughout the film as the two main characters race to save a doomed patrol walking into an ambush. A non-stop, heart-pounding tale of heroism and devotion to war time comrades. Deserves Academy Awards best film of the year Oscar.

    A mix between Saving Private Ryan and The Revenant. But both of those other two movies were way better.

    This movie was boring! No way close to saving private Ryan! Not best picture of the year!

    Awesome camera work, claustrophobic trench scenes and a well acted film.
