Synopsis:
Journey's End is set in northern France in March 1918 as C Company, led by Captain Stanhope (Sam Claflin), arrives to take its turn in the front line. Told that a German offensive is imminent, Stanhope drowns his fears in whisky while the other officers (Paul Bettany, Tom Sturridge and Stephen Graham) and their cook (Toby Jones') attempt to distract themselves in their dugout with talk of food and life before the war. They are joined in the trenches by Raleigh (Asa Butterfield), a new young officer fresh out of training who is excited about his first real posting and the chance to serve under his schoolboy hero Stanhope.
Raleigh's naive enthusiasm contrasts with the other men's mounting fear as the tension rises and the attack draws ever closer.

Sad but true. - Journey's End review by JD

Spoiler Alert
22/06/2018

This excellent First World War Movie, based on an original play and book, captures the boredom and horror of life in the trenches.

The cast is superb, as is the atmosphere and tension created by the anticipated attack on the Allies front.

A very moving story, brilliantly brought to the screen and gives a very realistic view of what life must have been like in 1918 for Officers and Men on the front line.

Good but Grim - Journey's End review by IG

Spoiler Alert
26/08/2018

Well executed film that portrays the absolute futility of the first world war and the complete stupidity of the aristocratic prats "in charge". Not an easy watch, or particularly entertaining, a worthwhile watch nonetheless.

SoSo Adaption of a Great Play - Journey's End review by KW

Spoiler Alert
28/06/2018

As a fan of the original play I am curious as to how film makers go about converting it to a film. In this instance it was OK but felt that the supporting cast were the real stars. Visually to look at, it was first rate and the supporting cast were exceptional and special credit must go to Toby Jones, but for me the problem was that I could connect with Sam Claflin characterisation of the officer commanding the unit and this left me at times, wandering away from it.
