Massively disappointing
8 September 2014 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I don't mind watching a movie that doesn't live up to expectations but to brand this movie a breathtaking, epic war film, is laughable. At best it is a low budget tribute to a brave Canadian force that led a renowned battle in France. At worst, the DVD release seems to simply cash in on the anniversary of the Great War. It has no real story, doesn't engage the viewer, and the music and the cinematography are not worth commenting on... Apart from a couple of performances (Clayton Garrett, Tom Sinclair) it is pretty forgettable. Biggest disappointment is it offers nothing more than a stage play so misses an opportunity. On a positive... It's only 92 minutes long.
