    Excellent movie! Very well done. Original, well shot, and very suspenseful all the way through. I highly recommend it.

    My grandpa is a veteran of this war and he told me that this is as real as it gets. This movie was so good it triggered his PTSD right in the theatre. Long story short, and two heart pills later, we saw the movie twice in one day.

    Focused and clarifying about the horrific nature of WW1. Told simply through the 2 soldiers assigned a near impossible task of delivering a message thru NO Man's Land. Outstanding filming. Only idiots would give this one star and there are a few listed here! No sense of history in these poor souls

    This is a beautiful, spectacular movie, a true work of art, a cinematic poem on war. It should not be realistic and a true depiction of the war itself and it is not, thank god. It is instead a powerful, symbolic take on what the war can be to humanity. And the means used to convey the idea are clever - nothing like I've seen before. The night images especially are superb, out of this world. The movie is at the same time gripping, daunting and mesmerizing. I went in with little expectations - as I do not really watch war movies, I came out touched, humbled and in awe of the artistry that was involved in its creation. I still think of it, more than one week after I've watched it. I've seen 8 out of the 9 movies nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars. This one is certainly a class above the rest.

    Brilliant camera angles and continuous motion. Enjoyed the story from start to finish. Best movie I have seen in the past year.

    This movie was interesting from the point of view, that WWI does not have as much coverage as other war movies, yet it was one of the most brutal wars that was fought.

    The director made a bunch of silly mistakes.

    Good movie, worth the cost of admission, but it is not worthy of an Oscar
