WHAT'S IT ABOUT

At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield and Blake are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers – Blake’s own brother among them.

    It's a wondrous movie with an ok plot, but where it dazzles, boy does it shine. Great acting from an amazing British cast (Richard Madden, Colin Firth, Mark Strong Andrew Scott and Benedict Cumberbatch just to name a few) but the star of the show is undoubtedly the cinematography. Told using just a handful of seamless shots, the true wonder comes from watching a camera follow the soldiers through the trenches, barbed wire, muddy waters and tunnels all seemingly without an edit. There are some but it truly adds to the grim atmosphere and while the story is nothing new, the storytelling from Sam Mendes is incredible. 4.3 / 5
