Lousy story; not historical.
LOVED IT!! Worth checking out on the big screen.
This movie's cinematography and sets were incredibly well done and lent a unique feel to the movie (especially the cinematography). While seeing this movie remember that this is not an action movie but a drama set in the first world war. While there is action the action is not at the forefront of the movie. This movie is about sacrifice, heart and humanity in the midst of humanity at its worst.
Quite boring, my BF fell asleep and it was his pick!
Excellent movie, keeps you on your toes!!!
I liked it. The cinematography was excellent and the acting was also very good. Not an action packed war flick, so if you go in hoping for a "Black Hawk Down" experience, you will need to temper that thought. I didn't love the story, but overall this movie is worth seeing IMO.
I thought more about how 1917 is real POS. It for sure was not a war movie at all. More of a terribly made adventure movie. Terribly fake computer graphics. The story is a POS. So not real. The movie progressively gets worse and more unbelievable every second. I was thinking how stupid the scene is with the woman and the baby. Then the soldier pull out a canteen of milk. Please, this is comic book GARBAGE. To not waist your time or money on the 1917 POS. Go see They Shall Not Grow Old. Or better yet read a focking book.
Not a war movie. 1917 is an adventure movie. It is not a war movie. The movie is exciting but has little to do with WWI. I was hugely disappointed. Go see the excellent film, They Shall Not Grow Old.
Did a great job in portraying the horror that was WW1. The story was compelling. Sad to think many apparently rate war films based on the count of explosions, death and gore. Each participant had their own story.
