I’m not the biggest war film lover, but this blew my mind. It felt like I was on the journey with the two main characters, and the way it was shot was made cinema. Amazing film.
1917 is unlike any war film I've ever seen! 🤯 This movie was shot in the most stunningly beautiful way possible.
Realistisch. Innovativ. Beeindruckend. Erschreckend.
Diese Wörter beschreiben den Film eigentlich ganz gut. Die Art, wie der Film gedreht wurde ist sehr neu und erfrischend und lässt den Zuschauer gerade bei diesem Thema perfekt in das Geschehen eintauchen. Da der Film wie an einem Stück, ohne Cut, gedreht wurde (oder man dies jedenfalls so im Film wahrnimmt), fühlt man sich, als würde man es selber in Echtzeit (!) erleben. Die Handlung ist ebenfalls sehr realistisch gehalten, ebenso wie die Umgebung, Dialoge, ect.
Einfach nur eine Empfehlung für Jedermann.

Sorry but maybe I'm missing something? I thought this was if anything a little dull? It didn't captivate me or draw my attention. It's not a bad film by any means but I just don't get the rave reviews!?

Definitely not my favorite war movie. It felt like a war movie that only cared about the one shot camera trick that was cool at first but didn't even notice it as it went on. The movie looks pretty but i couldn't even tell you what happened in it.

OK let me say this even you don't blink for the entire movie you can't find a single breakdown or frame skip, this movie drags you from the first frame to the climax on one go! Hats off to the entire team, the story and screenplay is excellent you jump into a war field is what I would say about the movie in a line, a must watch
Excellent. You may spend most of the time trying to find the hidden cuts but that makes you admire the work of the film crew even more

Monday night's movie was 1917 directed by Sam Mendes.
The film follows two British soldiers in France who have been given orders to stop an attack as it is a trap by the Germans and will result in the loss of many servicemen.
It is an amazing film. The camera follows along and it feels like one long shot. Of course it wasn't filmed that way.....that would be virtually impossible. There are many "How did they do that?" moments in this film.
There are also many awe inspiring sequences as well. There is one sequence of a war torn French village at night that is constantly being lit up by flares and fires which casts shadows and light all over the damaged buildings. It's just amazing.
One thing I keep hearing about this film is that there really is no character building....which I don't understand. It is following two men on a mission in real time and time is of the essence. There really is no time for, "Hey, what's your backstory?" No time for flashbacks either. They meet others along the way.....but they need to get to where they are going.....no time for chitchat. It basically is "This is your mission....aaaaaaannnnd go!!!!"
The color palette for this film is brown. That's pretty much it. Lots and lots and lots of brown. Which completely fits the dreary "war is hell" theme. (I saw the Pedro Almodovar film Pain and Glory a while back but didn't review it. That movie was RED. So much red....you can't miss it. It's everywhere. This movie is brown, that movie was red.)
I recommend seeing this film on the big screen. I saw it in Dolby which I recommend as well. Your seat literally rocks and shakes with the explosions and gunfire. I am pretty sure this movie has the Oscar for sound editing in the bag.
It is an amazing film throughout....but the last several minutes were just perfection, I thought. It's a beautiful ending with beautiful cinematography and beautiful soaring music.
Very highly recommended.

It is an excellent film, the level of photography, the scene changes, the soundtrack, and the level of tension it adds is so good that it is a pleasure to see it.
It's a very good war movie, but not like this one, because if you want to see thousands of shots and deaths, don't watch it, It takes you to the edge of the saddle and wanting everyone to survive.
Compelling from Start to finish. Superb in the iMax with that Dolby Atmos. I took my 86 year old Grandma to watch who also throughly enjoyed proving its vital viewing for all ages.

Great story that allows it to compete with some of the best wartime movies but it’s the cinematography that sets it apart.
IF YOU LIKE A MOVIE THAT'S LIKE A GAME FOR THE MAIN CHARACTER AND DIFFICULTY INCREASE IN EACH LEVEL KIND OF MOVIE,THEN ITS FOR U
