Hard-hitting, immersive, and an impressive technical achievement, 1917 captures the trench warfare of World War I with raw, startling immediacy.

MacKay and Chapman disappear into their roles, pulling us into the story. | Full Review...
It's a tense, unnerving ride that accomplishes its goal of translating the first-person experience of war better than any war movies that have come before it. It's a level up. | Full Review...
The film is thrilling, moving on effectively from one shocking set piece to another, studding the narrative too with starry cameos.
