Storyline

The Western Front, April 1918. With a massive German attack imminent, a company moves up for its 6-day spell on the line. The company is lead by the war-weary, tightly wound, alcoholic Captain Stanhope. Joining the company is 2nd Lieutenant Raleigh, fresh out of training. Raleigh knew Stanhope at school and asked to be assigned to his company. Little does he realise how much Stanhope has changed. Written by grantss

Not a War Movie
12 September 2018 | by boonanakSee all my reviews

I just want to provide a quick calibration of what people should expect from this movie because some of the reviewers seem to have had a misconception of what this movie was supposed to be about. This is not a war movie - it's a movie about war. Specifically, the affects of trench warfare on a group of soldiers. Too that end, the movie is absolutely brilliant from the moment it begins to the moment it ends. You will not see long drawn out battle scenes, hand to hand combat, fire-fights, bloody carnage or anything else you've recently seen in Hacksaw Ridge, Lone Survivor or Fury. What you will see is the persistent and inevitable deterioration of the innocence and humanity of the characters as their fate, which they all know is coming, slowly but surely creeps up on them from one day to the next. Many other reviewers have used the term, "disturbing", to describe this movie and I agree 100%. It is highly disturbing, on a psychological level. You won't leave this movie feeling good or motivated to join the military; you will leave it with a loss to understand why humanity ends up in situations like this to begin with.
