British World War 1 Flick is Huge Hit
The premise was slightly similar to Saving Private Ryan, minus the bells and whistles of Hollywood. An old friend from the parachute regiment once told me that ‘the American military were all kit and no brains. Whilst the British military were all brains and no kit’. This epic film reminded me of that statement. Stripped back to bare characters and raw emotion of living on the front-line. Driven by acting and not special effects, this film has everything that Saving Private Ryan was aiming for and missed. A great film that’s worthy of a visit to the cinema.
