Waste of time. Wait until it hits the redbox if you must see it.
Weak writing, overall unrealistic and definitely overrated.
Easily 2 of the most gripping hours in a theater I’ve experienced all year. Through a series of extended shots made to look like one continuous take, we follow (without breathers) Lance Corporal Blake and Schofield through a visceral and relentless journey during WWI. In addition to top notch direction, set design and music, I’m left with just two words: Roger. Deakins. The man is simply the greatest cinematographer to have ever lived and here he captures nothing short of technical brilliance. The man deserves b2b Oscars for this masterpiece.
