Editorial Reviews

When an allied charge on the German lines goes horribly wrong, one man finds himself stranded in No Man's Land. Reuniting with two other survivors, together they must help each other as they charge into the unknown across the muddy wasteland as the Germans quickly hone in on the desperate trio. Tensions rise between the soldiers as they are surrounded by explosions of grenades with the constant rattle of machine guns in their ears. Time is running out as they make their way back over enemy lines as an impending attack could soon take them out.

This was a disappointing WW1 film: historically inaccurate, technically inaccurate, medically inaccurate, and most unnecessarily inaccurate in its portrayal of trench warfare. Much is made of three British soldiers trapped in No Man's Land after another failed frontal attack on German positions. The slightest noise by the Tommies hiding in a shell crater is enough to draw a storm of light arms fire, yet after the laughably inaccurate gas attack, there's no problem for an entire platoon of Germans (naturally, led by a rigid bullet-headed Prussian) who leave their trenches and go traipsing through the same No Man's Land fully upright in port arms position, wearing gas masks... No consistency.

Of course, the Platoon Commander for the the Brits in their sector has to be a silly cliché, a pompous, aristocratic Oxbridge type who has no concern at all for his men. The platoon sergeant is equally cliché, in that he (in contrast to the vacuous Lieutenant) is salt-of-the-earth, and a hero to his men... The other characters are predictably predictable as well.

I was also astounded to see a British soldier, who figures prominently in the drama, managing to get by on pluck, a bit of rum, and a lot of stiff upper lip when his leg is blown off by German artillery. Rather than succumb to shock, or blood loss, he pluckily binds up his stump with a tourniquet fashioned from his musette bag and webbing, and tally-hoes his way almost back to the British lines with a platoon of German infantrymen chasing after him across the mud, shell craters, and barbed wire.

The story had possibilities, but was obviously rushed to script and screen. The flagrant errors are simply the product of slap-dash historical research - a failing that is difficult to understand, given the extensive materials available.

Sad to see such interesting potential given a less-than-adequate treatment.

Dear Mr. Director (also Mr. Producer and Lead Actor),

Can I please get my hour and thirty seven minutes back? Bad writing, wooden acting, cliche plot with the oh-so shocking abortion sub plot thrown in, and absolutely no understanding of the Great War or military history whatsoever. What a complete waste of time.

And by the way, no matter what army - corporals don't rate someone calling them "Sir." Crack a history book some time. Or better yet, a book on film making. You might learn something.

There are better WWI movies out there if you're looking: Beneath Hill 60, Gallipoli, even Paaschendale. I'm not sure what the point of this one was. The military side of the house was spot on - good combat footage, weapons, uniforms, and depiction of trench warfare. But you had this absurd premise of a senior NCO dragging one of his Corporals out of No-Man's-Land with a traumatically amputated leg, only to have him die when they get back to the trench. And then back in England the NCO's unfaithful wife undergoes a hideous, basement abortion done by a mere nurse who is the (gorgeous!!) widow of the Corporal! I'm not sure what kind of parallel they were trying to draw here but it went in a strange direction that I didn't expect. You decide.

A British movies where the war is just negative thing and they must just carry on and endure the hardships with bad endings, It would have been a great movie if they had eliminated the home front of an unfaithful wife.

There is a lot of action in the trenches. That part is great and well done. the British really need to give positive endings to there war movies. I would have given it 5 stars except fpr the female home front part of the movie. Which is just about 10 or 15 minutes of the overall movie. It really not needed.

I think I will edit my home movie and eliminate the females home front parts. For future viewing.

Well written and filmed action packed movie about the utter stupidity of the tactics of trench warfare. The heroics of individuals are shown in a very personal way. The end has a twist that speaks of a modern dilemma in the news every day!

Sick & Stupid Score: 8/7*

This could have been a very simple and elegant war story of camaraderie and heroism. Instead, the movie indulges itself in a sickening sub-story of an unfaithful wife and a botched abortion.

This hideous abortion digression is supposed to supply one of two sides of a metaphor: On the one side, we have women trying to destroy a life, on the other side, men trying to save a life. So much for a failed attempt at raising this story to the level of cinematic art.

If you are looking for a straight-up story of World War I and the World War I generation, forget watching this movie. The traditional romantic tension of soldiers at the front longing to be with their girlfriends and wives back home, or of faithful women waiting for their heroic lovers to return, does not exist in this movie. That theme has been supplanted by adultery, pregnancy, and a gory basement abortion, as opposed to the standard “back-alley abortion” of feminist mythology.

The synopsis for this movie is a lie. Avoid this very sick and stupid movie.
_______________________________________________________
* The Sick & Stupid Score ranks movies from zero to ten in each category. For example, a Sick & Stupid Score of 5/5 indicates the movie is about average Sick and about average Stupid. A Score of 10/10 indicates the movie is so gross and idiotic no one should watch it; whereas a Score of 0/0 is a perfect movie.
