    Really tense movie. Loved every single second.

    It's such a raw and genuinely startling experience. The film was shot and cut together to make it feel like you are the third character and this deadly mission. The characters didn't have much development or backstory behind them, but they still were likable. The reason that this film is a MUST WATCH is because of how it makes every scene feel so intense and dramatic. The brilliant music just adds on to the atmosphere of the film. The film's rather graphic scenes helps develop the idea of how brutal a setting ww1 is. Since WW1 is mostly overshadowed by WW2, Sam Mendes deserves a round of an applause for taking a risk and going into an era that most people may not be familiar with. Great film and an absolute must see!

    Visually striking. A masterclass in cinematography and a real technical achievement even if you could just stop saying it is a one long shot but despite all the invisble cuts, top notch editing for that, there is a clear cut from day to night. Despite this fact the movie is an interesting new turn on the typical war movie like Nolan did with Dunkirk and even if it has the same problem of lacking charact development it is not by any means lacking the emotional impact thanks to the performances and a great score. A n achievement and a well deserve oscar winning for master Deakins.

    although the plot isn't really good and kinda boring at times. Both the cinematography and acting is great. Its a good war movie, but no everyone's cup of tea

    Beautiful film making! If you didn't cry during this film you must be lying. It's so emotional and has one of the best hero moments. It gives you a picture of how terrible a war can be and the terror it creates to soldiers.

    The single shot cinematography was cool, but it really impaired character development when they couldn’t show reaction shots.

    This movie was so powerful I was crying at the end. Few movies have this kind of visceral, beautiful depth. I strongly recommend this movie, it is a must-see.

    Great Modern War Film. Amazing cinematography that was incredible to see. Only thing that was disappointing was the plot, it was quite boring, but nevertheless it was a really good war film with great acting, drama ...

    The cinematography in this movie is absolutely amazing there’s no question about it but other than that this is an average movie and definitely not “one of the greatest war movies of all time” as many people have said. A lot of walking and talking I kept waiting for an action scene and when it did happen it was predictable and underwhelming.
