Sam Mendes, the Oscar-winning director of Skyfall, Spectre and American Beauty, brings his singular vision to this World War I epic.At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (Captain Fantastic’s George MacKay) and Blake (Game of Thrones’ Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers—Blake’s own brother among them.
From the manufacturer
The British Soldiers
Lance Corporal Schofield
Schofield, in his early 20s, is slightly more experienced than his friend and comrade Lance Corporal Blake, who asks him to accompany him on a seemingly impossible mission.
Lance Corporal Blake
Only 19, Blake is quite good with maps and eager to volunteer for any assignment that would take him back up the line. He is selected to pick a fellow member of 8th Battalion and give a vital message to the 2nd Devons, he has no concept of what he is signing them both up for.
With the weight of the war on his shoulders, General Erinmore tasks Blake and Schofield to make the impossible journey across No Man's Land and find the 2nd Devons - who are on the verge of advancing to occupied territory.
When Captain Smith's men happen upon Blake and Schofield at an abandoned farm, the Captain is exhausted and reeling. Wise, insightful and kind, he gives Schofield strategic advice regarding the prickly Colonel Mackenzie.
The war-weary commander of the Yorks holding the line at No Man's Land, Leslie tells our heroes they are foolish to believe that the Germans have gone.
Lance Corporal Tom Blake's brother, Lieutenant Blake is a proud officer in the 2nd Devons and has followed Colonel Mackenzie to the brink of the Hindenburg Line.
Commander of 2nd Battalion, who is convinced they have the Germans retreating and is determined to finish the job.

example; Soldier meets up with a convoy of British soldiers who are uninterested in his "vital" mission and offer him no assistance when he leaves it; A German flying ace stabs a man who just saved his life from a burning plane. The German aces of WWI were aristocrats, who lived by a code of honor, not evil Nazis. The British accents were laughable. If you want to see truly great films about WWI, watch "The Blue Max" or "All Quiet on the Western Front."
The action scenes are brilliantly filmed and presented. Totally believable. There is no gratuitous violence for violence sake. When such action(s) occurs, it is all part of the story. When the battle scenes take place, individually or in the form of a large assault as near the end of the film, the presentation is superb and authentic.
A great film.
the amount of work that went into building and digging those trenches is incredible to say the lease.
my goodness it’s big Wow on there part. and the story if all being true is courageous no doubt.
but the nit-pick I have is why tell a German to shoo. shoot for Christ-sake you kidding me.
I mean what the hell were you going to do with him. seriously you’re on a mission you just left a girl
and a baby all by themselves now you want a German to be your friend. really.
and the other one I have and it’s a serious health problem for him is. climbing over those dead body’s
in the water. who knows how long it’s been there. that water is so contaminated one mouth full and you’re
sick to death after swallowing it. those little things makes me question the director vision of fair play.
to the viewer as a whole. but the last part of the work they’ve done was very emotional for me.
Very Emotional Ending and Relief To See Him Make It.
English 7.1 Dolby Atmos.
Runtime 118 Min.
In it two men are given a mission to go through enemy lines to find a commander [Benedict Cumberbatch in a very small role] and tell him to not attack the Germans because it is an attack. The two main characters aren't played by anyone well known.
Of note is that the film was [mostly] filmed using a single camera. The camera goes from hand held them seamlessly attached to a rig, then on a steady cam platform, back to hand held, etc.
There are others in cameo roles including Mark Strong [Deep state, Prime Suspect].
There is just over 30 minutes on both 4K and BR. I was hoping with a modern movie, there would be more. However it could be because of Mendes. There wasn't much in his 007 movies as well
One reviewer called it "One of the best war films of all time." Not really. This is a second tier war movie. I can think of quite a few war movies that I found to be way better: Patton, Saving Private Ryan, Fury, Guns of Navarone, The Bridge on the River Kwai, Patton, etc.

Lieber das Geld für "Im Westen nichts Neues" oder Jüngers Roman "In Stahlgewittern" ausgeben. Diese Werke zeichnen ein realistisches Bild des Krieges.
Hier dagegen hat ein Ahnungsloser den 1. Weltkrieg nur als Vorlage für einen naiven, billigen Schinken genutzt.
Am Anfang gehen zwei Soldaten "spazieren" und reden Unsinn. Später schlägt sich einer allein gegen dumme oder besoffene "Hunnen" (Deutsche) durch. Lichtjahre an der Realität vorbei.
Dämlich, total langweilig und völlig überflüssig. Selbst 5 Euro wären zu viel. C Film, mehr nicht. Fehlkauf!
Kein Vergleich zu Filmen wie Der Längste Tag, Hunde wollt ihr ewig Leben, Midway (Charlton Heston) usw.
Hinsichtlich der Gut-Böse-/Dumm-Schlau-/ Held-Feigling-Erkennung wurden brav alle in der Branche üblichen Klischees bedient.
Klare Empfehlung an die Deutsche Filmförderung! Vielleicht geht ja da noch was ...
Hinweis: Macher von Märchenfilmen sollten nicht mit solch ernsten Themen spielen.
