Simran Hans Monocle As a genre piece, I think it's really interesting -- well made and immersive. But as a kind of emotional movie that really pulled me in, I don't know if it did that. Jan 27, 2020 Full Review Wenlei Ma News.com.au It's an immersive, visceral and meticulously crafted film that has the emotional stakes to match. Rated: 4.5/5 Jan 19, 2020 Full Review Namrata Joshi The Hindu The film dazzles at each step, one encounter and adventure after another shot like a set piece, complete in itself with MacKay's stoic presence adding to the pathos and poignancy. Jan 18, 2020 Full Review Mihir Fadnavis Firstpost The hyper choreographed, carnival-ride style technical razzle-dazzle of 1917 is more interesting than the film itself, which lacks an emotional sincerity. Rated: 2.5/5 May 15, 2024 Full Review Nadine Whitney Mr. Movie's Film Blog The power of 1917 lies in its ability to tell a human story of a single mission and translate that into an account that encompasses the brutality of trench warfare. Sep 17, 2023 Full Review Manuel São Bento MSB Reviews Edited to look like one continuous shot, 1917 is a mind-blowing technical achievement, elevated by Roger Deakins’ jaw-dropping cinematography, Thomas Newman’s emotionally powerful score, Sam Mendes' impeccable directing, and Lee Smith’s seamless editing.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/24/22 Full Review Matthew The performances were great and the cinematography was just outstanding. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/25/21 Full Review Katie D Well, the directing, cinematography, production design, and music definitely deserve their nominations! However, this wouldn't be my pick for best picture of the year. All in all, glad I saw it, but wouldn't see it again.
