Lots of comment here.

Personally speaking I thoroughly enjoyed the film. I thought the early no mans land scenes were excellent and uniform detail bar a few minor points really well executed. Clearly dramatic effect plays a big part in a film designed in the main for an audience not steeped in WW1 history or the chain of command. It certainly had the audience in my cinema hooked for two hours.

What a blast I've had, certainly worth watching, but, if in a tiny digital screen cinema, avoid sitting in the centre of any auditorium where the surround sound system might be at it's most deafening, unless you really like it.

Might have been advisable to have taken out the sniper with a couple of grenades ?

Also, surely the ink would have run on the letter after the soaking it got ?

Don't know if I enjoyed getting in as a Senior (noticed this as handing over ticket) am obviously looking older than I think, or in fact looking my age! but I actually think I am a lot, lot younger in my head!
