The film surrounds these two characters during World War I, two British soldiers — Lance Cpl. Schofield and Lance Cpl. Blake — receive seemingly impossible orders. In a race against time, they must cross over into enemy territory to deliver a message that could potentially save 1,600 of their fellow comrades — including Blake’s own brother.


Directored by Sam Mendes, he nailed it with the hard hitting, raw and impressive factor and doesn’t fail one bit throughout the 2 hr film, he was able capture the trench warfare of World War I with startling immediacy. It almost felt like you were part of World War 1, or rather for some, reliving it.

With some critics going as far as:

Although 1917’s film making very much brings attention to itself, it’s an astonishing piece of filmmaking, portraying war with enormous panache. This is big-screen bravado, and then some. – Alex Godfrey Empire
World War I is perhaps unequaled in its horrific brutality. 1917 takes us into that horror and doesn’t let us out of it for two hours. – Paul Asay Plugged In
About 15 minutes in to this movie, it dawns on you that this is something uniquely brilliant; by the end, it’s clear that Sam Mendes has made one of the best films of 2019.  – Tara McNamara Common Sense Media
Nothing short of inspiring.  – John Anderson Wall Street Journal
What ensues is a classic race against the clock ? made urgent by the fact that the survival of Blake’s brother is at stake ? as the soldiers encounter perils as well as moments of improbable poetry. – Ann Hornaday Washington Post
