Synopsis:
In July 1916 the Battle of the Somme began. Within hours 20,000 British soldiers had lost their lives. After months of stalemate, an audacious plan was formed. To dig a tunnel under No Man's Land and plant a bomb bigger than the world had ever seen under the German trenches. But the fate of millions lay not in the hands of professional soldiers, but a small rag tag of civilian miners for only they have the skills to complete the mission. Under the disapproving eye of General Haig (Douglas Reith), they have but one chance and four weeks until zero hour. History is waiting.

Unambitious but engaging - The War Below review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
23/11/2021

Totally predictable WW! drama, with noble working-class squaddies and idiot pompous generals. Our heroes have to dig a tunnel under the German lines. Will there be a tunnel collapse? What do you think? Dialogue is filled out with banter and voiceovers of letters written home. For most of its length it’s surprisingly unexciting for a war film, but it does break out towards the end. The awful trailer gives the whole game away anyway.

Not that it’s a bad film. It’s based on a true story and is well-meaning, well-mounted, well acted and sedately directed. It comes across as a high-end Sunday evening TV drama.
