    I love a good war movie. This was horrid. The story line is not much. Most of the movie was about showing corpses everywhere in every imaginable condition. If you like that see this movie. It reminded me of a C grade Audie Murphy cowboy movie except it was a war movie, not believable and disjointed. Again in a movie, the Germans couldn't hit a barn door from 20 yards with a bazooka. Come on, a bucket of cow's milk available for a baby but all the artillery was destroyed? Do not believe the critics, they need to get some real honest evaluations and actually watch the movie instead of following other critic's opinions - a waste of my time. The popcorn was excellent though!

    The re-creation of the trenches, no manís land and period accurate wear are to be commended. The movie walks a fine line rather well telling a plausible plot and a few rather suspect scenarios

    SLOW-the last 10 minutes ALMOST made it a worthwhile use of my time. Don't pay attention to the rave reviews like I did.

    Difficult to believe entire basis of story, that trench runners would be asked to cross enemy front lines to deliver a message. Could have been dropped by plane in 10 minutes. But there would be no movie then. Unbelievably, you also wont believe the first 75 minutes of the movie takes place in REAL .time. There are no edits or cuts. Everything had to go perfectly!! That alone is worth the price of admission. Impossible to imagine how non stop filming was done in a WWI battlefield environment. Watch and marvel. The movie itself was also captivating, as long as you remember this is an attemp to depict a supposedly true story told by the directors actual WWI experience.

    i like the movie because in the short span of this movie ...i get the sense of how possibly it was like for the individual soldier in the trenches. The tedium most of the time for the soldier in the battle area with the constant fear of being killed at any time.
