Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama War - This WWI-set drama is mostly a two-character piece with young stars George MacKay and Dean- Charles Chapman, with the familiar faces such as Colin Firth and Benedict Cumberbatch appearing only briefly. Language and violence makes the film too intense for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good The graphic nature of the presentation may limit the audience - understandably, many viewers will shy away from such an uncompromising vision - but the movie stands out as one of the year's most memorable experiences. Its consideration when Oscar nominations are announced is a foregone (and deserved) conclusion.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average ...for all of its technical expertise, little of it helps viewers to care about the characters or what might happen to them. When all is said and done, "1917" is basically a gimmick film. If that is enough for you, you may admire it for its accomplishments. Personally, I wanted more.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good ...excellent and innovative... ...what makes the vivid film such an astounding effort - and one of the year's best movies - is that it's edited seamlessly as one continuous real-time take... ...an immersive and intense journey that digs deep into each of its main characters' souls...

Rex Reed Full Review
Excellent ...it's a war movie that will leave you breathless. The intensity is overwhelming. Every war is hell, no matter when it was fought, but 1917, which is about a war far removed from contemporary reality, turns out to the best war picture since Saving Private Ryan.
