    Great movie filled with drama, intensity. Riveting all based on a true story. It gives you the feel of seeing thdestruction and death up close. Great costumes and settings at sites. Very historically accurate. The battle scenes played a role in the moviebut the mission itself is what drives this movie.

    Saw this movie on the fly. As an artistic war movie, it works just fine. As a shoulder-to-shoulder with Black Hawk Down or Saving Private Ryan, it does not work at all. Even though parts of the movie were linear with two soldiers running through trenches, the power of the story and the outcome for the two heroes who are running for their lives to save an entire division of soldiers, who are advancing from the safety of their trenches into a deadly trap. Yes, I had mixed emotions about the movie; it lacked the realistic battle scenes of Black Hawk and other war classics; however, it ascended nicely with the remarkable heroism of its main character, who completed his mission, took a final insult from his commanding officer, and rested by himself, joyous that he was still alive. This is sort of a date movie.

    Very disappointing. No character building. Big names had such a small part - they didn't even need to be in it except to sell the movie. Some parts didn't make sense - no one around and there's a bucket of fresh milk!!!!! What was that about.

    The effort it took to make this movie in two takes is astounding. The acting was seamless, and the set was so realistic it could have been in France in the old trenches. Kudos to the director.

    Spectacular movie! It kept you riveted in your seat right from the beginning. You really felt for the main characters and the cinematography was excellent throughout the entire movie. An Oscar hopefully.
