‘1917’ is a war drama about two young British soldiers during WW1 who are given an impossible mission: deliver a message, by dawn, deep in enemy territory that will stop 1,600 men, and one of the soldiers’ brothers, from walking straight into a deadly ambush. ‘1917’ stars George Mackay, Dean-Charles Chapman, Mark Strong, and Benedict Cumberbatch. It’s won and been nominated for several awards, including ten nominations at the Academy awards, and ten at the Oscars.
The realism and cinematography of this film are incredible, the attention to detail is breath taking. War is brutal, unrelenting, and most of all war is real. ‘1917’ really drives these home. The other thing taken away from this movie, the Germans would not stop at any cost, even if it meant harm to themselves. They are like a bunch of wasps whose nest has been disturbed. This is an incredible film and will go down as a war movie classic. This is a must see movie, I give it a 9/10.
