    A mediocre movie. Certainly didn't live up to its hype.

    This lasted about 4 years, amazing that survivors didn’t go insane. If this is a real interpretation it’s sure depressing.

    Unbelievable, explosions where the main character doesn't get hurt, German soldiers that cannot hit anyone

    Two guys, seemingly unaffected by the monstrous trench warfare and slaughter, go from a to b. The only interesting part is the one twist here. The random events/scenes thrown together as a hodgepodge prevent an actual storyline; it's just a collection of short stories. Hard to stay awake after first hour of getting nowhere. Lack of heroism and honest fear did give it integrity. The problem wasn't bad acting; there was no acting.

    Stupid movie. Totally artificial. Made of plaster and silicone, with no semblance of reality, in spite of the fact that it pretentiously tries to pass as authentic history. No sense of place. No sense of reality. The real soldiers in the trenches were called “les poilus” because they couldn’t shave. A far cry from the clean- shaven actor we see. The real fields were devastated and there was no sense of ‘magic realism’. The war was a devastating disaster for all involved, not a 2-day miracle!

    Was not interesting. Solders looked like statues in some of the scenes.

    Cinematography is Drone amazing .. almost no shot cuts. No stars makes for realiism. Exhilarating and exhausting action. No stars makes for wishing there were stars.
