1917, 8.8/10, is the breath-taking and mesmerising World War I visual masterpiece from Sam Mendes. This epic cinematic triumph is a visceral and immersive feature which deserves every bit of award hype that it has received. This isn’t a film depicting the gory conflict that surrounded World War I, 1917 is a human story during a inhuman moment in history. There is no good or bad, this is men running through the fog not to victory but to the uncertainty of death.
Blake and Schofield have been tasked with the impossible mission of delivering a message deep into enemy lines in order to save the live of 1600 British soldiers.
Yet again George MacKay has shown his immense acting range and Dean-Charles Chapman has proved that he has come a long way since his wooden Game Of Thrones performance.
Every single frame is as astonishing as the last. One scene in particular where the French town of Écoust is illuminated at night by fiery destruction was absolutely spellbinding. To experience this enthralling and monumental war feature on the big screen is possibly one of the most captivating things you will see this year.
