Atom User Reviews for 1917
Wonderful story told in a way I’ve never experienced before. One of the best movies I’ve ever seen.
One of the most boring movies I’ve seen so far
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!!
From a technical standpoint, one of the most amazing movies. Fantastic editing, sound, score, and cast. Definitely one of my favorite war films of all time.
It was alright
Extremely well directed and perfect acting. Really intense
this movie is intense
Scenes and effects were great. Character behavior doesn't feel right, not believable.
One of the most boring movies I have watched in my life The whole story is about a price of paper Not 1 scene of pure action
Alongside joker the best movies of the year! I cried like a baby! Really intense and very moving! Love the performances : )
Great story. Lots of tense moments.
Excellent piece of work. A must watch.
Most boring movie ever
The cinematography pushes this over the edge. The story was unoriginal, but the process was definitely amazing.
Very good movie, a little slow to start but the acting is very good and the cinematography is unbelievable, definitely worth seeing in the theater.
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.
