2.5 Would be a more appropriate rating! - The Great War review by AA

Interesting film covering the final days and hours of WW1 with a company of US soldiers sent to rescue a lost platoon and become embroiled in the last desperate efforts of the Germans to retain ground before the armistice kicks in!  Added to the complexity is the the mix of US soldiers some of whom don't want to mix with Negro colleagues but are forced to, to hold their positions.  Not a great film but an interesting one with its focus on how necessity forced the US troops to bond and save the day!

Great War - The Great War review by TR

Spoiler Alert

Hi All

I have noticed wth this film and others from the same film company, a couple of things which affect all their films. The colour filters give off a kind of purple hue when filmimg. This gives good clarity but has an unatural resonace with it. The unforms/'dress are all perfectly presented and not in keeping with the action... the action however is REALLY well done, some of the best I have seen. It's just that I see this film and others from this film company, a bit theatrical and 'amateur'. What really spols it for me is the unecessary American Jangoism and over the top patriotic sludge which accompanies it at the fnish. Conclusion - Great Action - Good Acting - Great Music, Whats left is crap. Not recommended.

switched it off before it was half way through, Just couldn't get into it at all. weak characters, bad acting just really poor.

Made for TV (in the 80's) feel to it.
