      David Jenkins Time Out As a director, Gross paints in big, emotive strokes, and though his dialogue often feels too tied to historical fact, this old-fashioned, patriotic war movie has its heart in the right place. Rated: 3/5 Sep 4, 2009 Full Review Wendy Ide Times (UK) It's hard to overstake how unimaginably dreadful is Passchendaele, a First World War drama that does Canada's already ropey film-making reputation no favours whatsoever. Rated: 1/5 Sep 4, 2009 Full Review Andrew Pulver Guardian Director-star Paul Gross may have noble intentions, but his film is plodding, to put it kindly: filled with over-scrubbed sets, glutinous tinkling music, and desperately pedestrian dialogue exchanges. Rated: 2/5 Sep 4, 2009 Full Review Brian D. Johnson Maclean's Magazine Passchendaele remains an impressive piece of work, a movie worth seeing and discussing as much for its flaws as its merits. Dec 27, 2017 Full Review Catherine Bray Film4 A kind of Canadian World War I version of Pearl Harbor recast with TV actors and made on a tenth of the budget - yet for all that more endearing than Pearl Harbour. Rated: 2/5 Sep 4, 2009 Full Review David West Filmstar Magazine It is impossible not to be moved by the nightmare of the trenches, but Passchendaele is a frustratingly uneven movie. Rated: 3/5 Sep 4, 2009 Full Review Read all reviews

      Miguel G The most disappointing movie I have ever seen they basically mocked jesus Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/20/24 Full Review Lorne T Extremely disappointing. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/21/24 Full Review Bob S not glossy and polished slick but great story well told with emotion and conviction Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/15/23 Full Review Colin H Plodding, ponderous, and predictable. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review raphael v Powerful performances, intense relationships, and a true revealing of the nature of war. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review chris b It just passed the time not too exciting but an okay account of Canada in the way. The place where I am living in Calgary. Trying for the dramatic effect and the typical Canadian Drama of a CBC movie. Glad I saw it but not something that is a must see over and over again. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
