Amateur Hour - WWII: The Long Road Home review by JD

Spoiler Alert
Updated 13/11/2020

One of the worst movies I have seen in years. Could have been made by students for their final exam. Acting is so wooden and some of the cinematography and continuity is a joke.

I turned the dvd off after 10 minutes, it was so poor.

One to avoid - WWII: The Long Road Home review by Rw

Spoiler Alert
13/11/2020

How this film got a 4.2 rating is beyond belief.

One star only to submit review but to be frank I would not have given it any stars as it's that amateurishly bad.

A Low-Key story of Integrity - WWII: The Long Road Home review by AS

Spoiler Alert
21/11/2020

If you are looking for a dramatic action movie, this is not the film to see.

It's strength is in its accurate portrayal of the real horrors of war -- the long periods of stultifying boredom followed by heavy violence, the damage done by long periods of isolation and emotional separation etc. There is the ongoing contrast between the beauty of Nature contrasting with the destructive thoughts and actions of the war participants.

The low-key "hero" stays focused on getting home to his wife and child -- following his intuition rather than just making mental assumptions.
