Did You Know?
- This is Sam Mendes's second war film. His first was Jarhead (2005).
- When Lance Corporal Schofield fires his Enfield rifle, he fires it over five times - and never once reloads. This is mistake as the Enfield had an interior magazine of five rounds. He should have reloaded at least one time.
- General Erinmore: They're walking into a trap. Your orders are to deliver a message calling off tomorrow morning's attack. If you fail, it will be a massacre.

Wonderful story told in a way I’ve never experienced before. One of the best movies I’ve ever seen.
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!!
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.
