It was the first day of screening here so there were a few people at the session. It was quite the movie. Reminiscent of the war movies of the 60s in its style this movie is the war movie we have been waiting for. No need for cheesy patriotic back stories or crazy heroics, it is more raw and honest in its story telling. With only limited dialogue it is the pictures, sounds and expressions that are used to let us know what is going on. In fact I think it might have been 20 minutes before there is any conversations and I think that there were only 4 of the characters names mentioned throughout the two hours.
Worth the price of sitting in a cinema seat with the biggest screen you can find. Young Harry Styles may have set the two young girls sitting next to me sighing, but I did like that there were a range of actors on screen that I didn't know were in the movie. 5/5.
