Trivia

The film is dedicated to Sam Mendes' grandfather, a Lance Corporal in The Kings Royal Rifle Corps during The Great War. The Kings Royal Rifle Corps merged with The Royal Green Jackets in 1966, then merged with other "Red Coat" regiments to form The Rifles in 2007. See more »

Goofs

The British medical station is above ground and too close to the front lines. It is well within range of German artillery. Normally, such large open-air stations would be miles behind the front lines. Smaller, underground aid stations would give first aid to the wounded. Then they would move to the larger medical stations. Similarly, German artillery pieces would never be sited just behind the front lines as shown, but several miles back. See more »

Don't listen to critics!
10 January 2020 | by allentyson-89230See all my reviews

Don't listen to the critics saying this movie is boring. This movie is one of the most tense and exciting movies I've seen in years. Amazing cinematography and overall amazing experience of a movie.
