This is one of those films, not a movie, a film, that must be seen in the movie theater. It is so expertly crafted and well made, it’s breathtaking in it’s execution. 1917 is one of the most beautifully shot and haunting war films I have ever seen and is a harrowing film. The story is so simple but is so epic and the director Sam Mendes and Roger Deakins the cinematographer should be given tons of awards for this tremendous achievement in film. Everyone needs to run out and see this movie now!!

Not a big fan of war movies . My brother loves them so I always see them anyways . 1917 is by far the BEST one I have ever seen . Masterful videography, stunning scenery, and most of all impressive one shots . Will buy on DVD when. Comes out

excellent movie with truly top notch camera work. There are only three full cuts in the entire movie. Otherwise it's shot as if a single camera following the main characters throughout the film.

The cinematography is beyond anything I have seen before. The story was gripping and keeps you interested all the way thru, BUT the WAY it is presented .. as a single camera, continuous shot from beginning to end, I have never seen anything like that before!

Excellent cinematic beauty, phenomenal score. Story was very simple but I still enjoyed it and that I felt like I was on the journey with them. Some moments were pretty intense, I jumped a few times lol. Best war movie I've seen in years.

1917 doesn’t solve the problem that was posed 100 years ago by the historical convergence of modern warfare and modern image-making technology. No movie can provide a final answer to the question of what it means to film a war. But Mendes’ stunningly crafted entry in the genre will now become a part of a long history of imperfect representations of that unrepresentable conflict.

Even if the film is mostly hitting familiar notes in terms of story and theme, it expresses a concise, focused and expertly managed vision with which there’s little to quibble, and the extraordinary style represents the fruition of a long-imagined dream on the part of many directors and cinematographers. From now on, when the discussion turns to great works of cinematography and camera operating, 1917 will always have to be high on the list.

Mendes is intent on bringing a sense of breathless derring-do to a war only known for its doomed futility. And he loads onto it a one-take challenge, a rolling-back and slowly-swerving camera, using the sleight of hand which distinguishes the best action cinema of this kind.
