User Reviews

This film is timeless
10 January 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Unlike the majority of movies from the 1960's which date quickly - 'The 25th Hour' - is as fresh as if it had been made yesterday. It withstood being watched recently (late in 2003) and was as good, if not better, than any blockbuster films released that year. A seriously commendable tribute - thirty-six years on. Normally, Quinn is an actor that I find hard to watch, however, this role was tailor-made for him.

'The 25th Hour' is unlikely to ever find a large audience in the future, or be re-released. Such a pity. Anyone undertaking media studies now or in future years would surely find a wealth of cinematic technique and craftmanship contained in this epic story. One of the other reviewers, here on IMDb, has rightly classed this timeless film as "a forgotten gem". Spot on. It's refreshing to find an original slant on anything from WWII. This movie is totally unique. Well Done to all those involved in its making.
