      anarchy_inthe_pa This was awful. I find it hilarious that they mirrored half the movie making everyone left handed for at least 30 minutes. Ive never seen so many left handed bolt actions in a war. IYKYK I would except nothing less from perleman. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Trama piuttosto confusa; di chiaro c'è solo il contesto storico con i precisi giorni in cui finì lo scontro; tutto il resto però appare nebuloso. I personaggi non vengono descritti in maniera esaustiva, i luoghi non meglio specificati non aiutano a capire le motivazioni di alcune scelte e non si riesce nemmeno a comprendere se la storia è vera oppure no. Anche le sequenze di battaglia lasciano ampiamente a desiderare; ogni comparsa di muove in maniera approssimativa. Anche i dialoghi e gli eroici discorsi sono poco credibili e abbastanza deludenti. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member The American sergeant throws a hand grenade without looking, 10 Germans are killed. The German sniper with a rifle with a telescopic sight shoots 3 Americans, only wounding one. What a lot of nonsense. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Nice so it wasn't just me who thought I was watching Saving Private Ryan in WW1?! I can't believe someone read this script and said "OK". It just keeps going with the word for word SPR script its laughable... Lol /popcorn Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review jim s Take the Saving Private Ryan script and set it in World War one. Substitute a platoon of Buffalo Soldiers for Matt Damon. Everything else is the same, complete with a letter from Abraham Lincoln, and the captain resolving tension by relating personal details. The film ends with a hopeless battle, outnumbered Americans defending. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Yawn. A made for tv rendition of Saving Private Ryan.

      Frank Scheck Hollywood Reporter Unfortunately, despite his obvious passion for the genre, Luke doesn't yet have the cinematic chops (or clearly, the budget) to effectively put his vision onscreen. Dec 12, 2019 Full Review Ben Kenigsberg New York Times It simply does not have the budget or craft for the scale it requires. Dec 12, 2019 Full Review Gary Goldstein Los Angeles Times Luke fills his at times heavy-handed, anachronistic script with enough sincere emotion and grace notes to counter the film's physical and financial restraints, narrowly staged combat scenes and limited character development. Dec 12, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Lobs more cinema war cliches than grenades. Rated: D Dec 16, 2019 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation Mostly recycled war movie cliches, with the props - guns, explosions, etc. - occasionally giving away the paltry budget. Rated: 1/4 Dec 5, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
