Trivia

When Peter Jackson was approached to make this film he was allowed unlimited access to the IWM film archives and, as the film was a co-production with the BBC, also allowed access to their film and TV library. He was told he could do whatever he wanted with the project just as long as it was respectful and interesting. Asides from the impressive computer augmented colorization of the monochrome film (which Jackson says would have been even better had he been allowed more time) one of the things he wanted to sort out was for the film to play at a normal speed so the action seen appeared normal and not jerky and jarring. This was also accomplished by a sophisticated computer algorithm, that surprised even Jackson with how well it did its job when the film was being scanned. See more »

Goofs

Several shots of tanks appear in the film, both Mark V (Mark Five) and Mark V* (Mark Five Star). They have been colourised green. In reality, tanks of these types were painted "a neutral brown colour". See the article by the British Tank Museum which states that. "Surrendering to the inevitable, towards the end of 1916 it was ordered that the tanks should be painted in a 'neutral brown colour' all over." These tanks entered service in 1918, and were factory-painted brown. See more »

Soldier: You don't look, you see. You don't hear, you listen. You taste the top of your mouth. Your nose is filled with fumes and death. But the veneer of civilization has dropped away.

Utterly haunting movie of life on the western front in WW1. Peter Jackson has thrown some serious computer firepower to bring these soldiers back to life.You will have never seen anything quite like this before.Breathtaking in many parts!
