Trivia

At the South Dakota premiere showing of this film on November 10, 2019, it was noted that the majority of the film's events happened exactly 100 years previously ... namely, November 10, 1919. The full range of the movie is from November 8/9 to November 11, 1919, but the significance of the screening date was appreciated by the audience in attendance at the Historic Orpheum Theatre in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Goofs

Several scenes have been flipped in edit rather than re-shot so characters are mirroring each other in frame... but with no thought to U.S. insignia and text on crates, etc being backwards. See more »

Re-enactment does not make a movie
22 December 2019 | by tvanpouckeSee all my reviews

I understand the importance of highlighting forgotten issues. And the effort made into doing so.

But honestly. This movie is really really bad.

So bad that it became funny.

A spectacled German sniper, just standing there, beside a tree. It made me spit out my coffee (okay okay, it was beer). German soldiers falling like flies with a few gunshots. Enemies meeting each other on a straight (!) path just staring at each other, then starting to shoot and charge. Blood that looks a lot like the ketchup I had earlier on my food.

Bates Wilder did a pretty good job though. Perlman and Zane... no idea what they were doing there.

Again, all respect for the historical references and the sacrifices that have been made at the time in the Great War.

But I'm looking at not just the message, but also at the movie.

And quite frankly, this movie sucks.
