The youth of the soldiers, horror of trench warfare and the pure mental, emotional and physical exhaustion extracted by a state of perpetual combat combined for an evocative experience that was simply overwhelming.

But then 10 seconds later they're walking like nothing happened?

Stunning brilliant and phenomenal .

The film is tantamount to a free-flowing yet labored and deeply affecting poem, one that caught me on the edge of my seat, fidgeting and unwilling to let any moment.

Unbelievably Predictable - Triumph of Impulsive - Emo Characters - More Like 2019 than 1917.

I did think the plot was intriguing at times, but the problem for me was that it was slow for the most part and personally I'm not a fan of slow movies.

The cinematography is breathtaking, so beautifully shot and sets the perfect tone for the film.

For me the 25 minutes or so were quite thrilling.

But it really has a breathtaking immersion.

From the single-shot approach, to the performances and commitment of the actors, to the score, to the realism and intense "ticking clock" device in use - this movie has it all.

Hollow and boring .

What a waste of time 👎

Below average and boring .

Wooden acting, predictable scenarios.

The whole way through I was on the edge of my seat.

The camera, angles, music and most importantly the lighting at night was so stunning.

cinematography is stunning .

a bit TOO simple but visually stunning .

Although the whole process marveled at the superb technology, but emotion, human design, theme, conflict are all empty, see the end only feel the technology and the play put the cart before the horse.

A pathetic anglo-saxon propaganda schtick with giant plot holes on every possible occasion.

Action packed, stupid .

The Cinematography And Editing Is Worth Watching .

It's a stunning piece of film and remembers what so many suffered in wars.

It is action packed with great acting , great special effects .

Worth watching .

Intense Great war -war movie .

But it was a long drawn out boring film.

Very slow moving movie, I love war movies but this was actually quite boring.

The plot was paper-thin however - very linear, with only one semi-compelling character.

Like a boring computer programmer, the director of 1917 was obviously obsessed with the technology he was employing instead of the end user enjoyment.

Boring as hell .

Really enjoyed it

Besides that, it's an exciting and surprising WWI story which is always important to be told.

A stunning work .

Everything else is bland.

Entertaining, not gripping.

The film loses a bit of steam in the final act but the journey to get there is enjoyable and technically brilliant.

Visually it was extremely good but it was just that the story was a bit boring .

Yea the camera work is cool but it's also boring man geez.

Absolutely breathtaking movie!

Good photography,good directing but too many cliche and nothing new .

Some may find it boring because the main characters don't talk much and it's like following someone's morning routines without breaks.

The movie is to my understanding shot entirely in Scotland, and Mendes makes use of the stunning landscapes whilst also creating his own sets providing a dramatic and even shocking contrast between the two.

Highly entertaining.

While I thought that the one shot gimmick was quite pretentious in Birdman, it works well in the context of this film.

The story is flat and slow, and lacks the connection and power that successful major war epics achieve.

1917 is just as bland and overly-contrived as Dunkirk or Darkest Hour, being simultaneously too afraid to add any film-making creativity or character, whilst also stripping bare any sense of intrigue, depth, nuance, or potential for thought or reflection.

After 2 hours of this, the novelty had well and truly worn off and I was pretty bored with the whole thing.

Visual stunning but such a bore.

Breathtaking .

The story switches seamlessly from loud, intense, and anxiety inducing, to quiet, reflective, and almost tender at times.

His performance was absolutely stunning.

Make the film unwatchable!

There probably should've been more action scenes which would've made the movie a bit more thrilling and intriguing to watch.

Much of the film works only because of the stunning camera work and cinematography, and great acting by Dean-Charles Chapman.

Camera work is just amazing and the idea to adopt the one-shot like technique immersed me even more in the story.

The difference between this experience and root canal surgery is that this movie is visually stunning with a gorgeous soundtrack.

Although the protagonist has finished his task at last, unlike the traditional personal heroism movie, the way of shooting in the end enhances the audience's sense of experience and follows the sudden crisis around the hero, which is breathtaking.

Worth watching.

By using this type of cinematography it has meant that the viewer is kept on the edge of their seat throughout the entire film as they follow the two men from the moment the film begins.

Nice shots, beautiful cinematics, but nothing happens.

The night window scene features beautiful cinematography, breathtaking visuals, and an amazing score.

Intense,thrilling, unrelenting, heartbreaking.

The pace of the movie is very slow.

Cliche, poor performance, worse screenplay, long boring...

1917 is an intense powerful film.

After a long time I saw a movie which is as compelling and spell bounding as the Spielberg's saving private Ryan.. The emotions involved in this movie are so damn real..

The fighting scenes are as breathtaking as they are atrocious, it almost gives you the urge to jump out of your seat to run through the battle field and help those poor soldiers.

A gripping war story based on the real life account of two World War I soldiers given orders to cross the battlefield into enemy territory to deliver a message to a commander unaware of the trap his 1600-man contingent is walking into.

A War Story told with Stunning Visuals and Technical Excellence .

It is also visually stunning.

It just keeps you watching and watching it is a 10/10 for me if you love war movies if you love movies that keep you on the edge of your seat this is the one for you.

The story is compelling and lean so as to fit the movie's framework.

Quite gripping to watch this film except that it could have been much better with the flow of missing important background sound.

Him and Deakins produced a truly stunning shot as Schofield ran across the line, perhaps one of the most visual stunning and emotional shots I've seen.

Unbelievable obstacles along the way, pretty intense.

Overly contrived, bland, forced .

The long takes, the authenticity, and practical sets add so much realism and intensity to the story that they make every frame immensely gripping.

One of the most boring movies I've seen this year.

This movie is amazing and it is definitely worth watching right now.

From start to finish incredibly enjoyable!!

Each scene has a purpose which makes it engaging from the very start until the end.

Boring .

Overall, I believe one would love this film only if he has watched it in the theatres, else he would end up getting a bit bored.

Slow but intense .

Yet, this movie is a great movie, with a simple storyline but completely worth watching.

There are moments in this film that are simply breathtaking and jaw-dropping.

One of the most engaging movies I have ever watched.

The on-screen characters exhibit exceptionally common, stunning cinematography, realistic locations, wonderful score and a genuine bleeding edge war understanding, this film really lived up the advertised and is the following best film since Hacksaw Ridge was released a couple years back.

boring vomit.

Plain dull and boring.

While the people might gush about the cinematic feast, in terms of storytelling, it's yawningly boring and unrealistic.

The cinematography in this movie is absolutely BREATHTAKING.

It strikes the perfect balance of being calm and soft in some instances, or extremely intense in others.

An intense treat for the eyes .

Not all inclusive or ideal, but some very shocking and griping moments of the confusion and horror's of war.

Slow and Boring .

Don't waste ur time watching it!!

I mean how they made it so bad is a mystery to me and how some people actually enjoyed it is an even greater mystery.

This is surreal filmaking with stunning cinematography and excellent performances from both leads, one of finest war films ever made.

It's relatively boring and soulless in my opinion.

It truly is a riveting, exciting, tense, and heart stopping thrill ride.

It was So unexpected that the chatter in the Theatre was louder than the Movie for about 5 Seconds.

Good but contrived .

It make boring .

While it may be a technical triumph, the characters are boring, the acting from the two leads is poor, and the story is predictable.

Entertaining and stunning.

A couple hundred yards or so and he finds the troop he was looking for listening to some guy sing a boring song that we are forced to sit through as well...

Roger Deakins' fascinating cinematography is a perfect treat for the eyes.

The movie pace is kind of slow, but filled with intense.

A very cliche film and one where the novelty soon wears off and you start to pick holes in the story/casting direction (there were no black serving with any front line british unit), the soy boy nature of the main characters etc.Overall not great

Nothing happened...

It Felt like I was on a ride, It was So exciting.

Then there was the cliché dumb soldiers missing every shot on our main character making him look like a super hero.

It is exciting, tense, and keeps viewers fully engaged.

drawn out dramatic sequences and highly improbable events that seem totally disconnected from the mission and motivation of the lead characters and unrealistic in the middle of a brutal trench war.

Absolutely Breathtaking Movie .

Masterful, breathtaking.

Mesmerising cinematography fails to lift this unconvincing and boring costume drama.

Amazing technical feat ruined by major, pointless historical revisionism.

1917 flawless, riveting, engaging, 10/10

I wish I could have seen more of the backstories related to the characters, but overall I really enjoyed it!

Its intense, real, clear and very important you fall in it right after it starts.

Besides the great direction, landscape and cast i think that the plot is quite boring actually.

A very thrilling experience.

Entire film full of boring conversation and overuse scene!

Unbearably cringe-worthy and trite dialogue is the mainstay of this film.

1917 Is A Masterpiece - Stunning Cinematic Experiece Through A Single Continous Shot.

Some of the frames are visually breathtaking, and demand to be revisited to absorb everything they have to offer.

Cinematography very well done, and evocative of the Great War.

A lot of the scenes feel very long and drawn out.

Lack of story, character building and action becomes painfully obvious when the credits roll on, that was it!?

The hero simply rounds a corner and walks into a house with a girl and her baby, calmly spending a few hours chilling with her, as if nothing happened.

1917 is a brilliant, exhausting, thrilling, moving achievement to stand alongside Dunkirk to make a pair of modern war films that will stand as pillars of the genre.

Not a masterpiece, but still enjoyable .

The performances of the two young leads Dean-Charles Chapman and George MacKay are engaging, as facets of their otherwise ordinary personalities come through.

Just watching was intense, so i couldn't even imagine living in that fear for years.

It is ridiculous and really dragged me out of the experience.

Just Terrible - So Boring!!!.

It's not your typical action-packed war flick, and that's actually refreshing, but it is indeed suspenseful!

Just soooo boring.

In short, 1917 is a technically spectacular work which delivers a cliche and generic portrayal of the war.

Mind Blowing cinematography!!!

but at times, the plot just feels like black and white, good against evil war time propaganda.

Suspenseful, yes.

Nonetheless it was riveting, breathtaking at places.

Visually stunning and moderately engaging story of soldiers who need to transit the weaving front lines to call off a doomed attack.

The acting, story line, visual effects, and cinematography all come together to create a movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat!

Visually it's absolutely stunning, and the one take is well done (though certainly not perfect).

The movie isnt just meh because of lack of action its meh because i just felt bored most of the time.

Review: Now I know that a lot of people think that this is a cinematic masterpiece and that Sam Mendes deserves every award under the sun, but I personally think that it is just a toned-down version of Saving Private Ryan with some dull actors.

Felt like most of war movies are too slow or feels too long therefore boring.

A little bit boring I'm afraid.

The action, the score, the sound, the gritty realism of it all kept me on the edge of the seat.

NOTHING HAPPENS.

Looks Great, Good Acting, Boring as Hell Though .

Stunning .

I found myself bored since the first minute of the movie.

Also, for being a Best Picture nominee, there were a ton of contrived / forced scenes that seemed almost silly.

Which means is technically astute, highly pretentious--especially for a war movie--with director/writer Sam Mendes wanting to attract attention by filming it in a seemingly singular shot and employing cinematographer legend Roger Deakins to give extra-polished sight to his vision.

Worth watching for photography.. .

Overall the visuals were stunning, the acting was excellent and the true story was mind-blowing.

A breathtaking technical achievement.

Long sequences worked well with the long shots, but others felt contrived, and made it obvious.

For a history buff it is a complete, total waste of time.

The performances of the two young leads Dean-Charles Chapman and George MacKay are engaging, as facets of their otherwise ordinary personalities come through.

You really get to see all the details such as the vast number of extras with historical well-made accurate costume & make up work trapped in a claustrophobia sandbag trench surround by muddled empty field of craters full of corpses, barb wire, and shell cases.

Mind Boggling Technological Achievement .

The story is compelling and real.

It manages to tell a fresh story with breathtaking bravura.

The script is spare but gripping as not just MacKay and Chapman put in great performances; there are also great supporting turns by Mark Strong, Colin Firth , Nabhaan Rizwan and Benedict Cumberbatch.

I cant describe in words how compelling this film is.

Boring and WAAAY over rated .

If director Sam Mendes wanted to pull viewers into the trenches of the first Great War then he succeeded with flying colors: amazing cinematography, stunning visual effects, and masterful direction with the use of long takes make you feel like you're right in the heart of it, and the realism (and sheer horror) of the battle scenes are overwhelming.

The way the Germans were depicted reminded of old propaganda movies: they are cruel, murderous, and/or stupid.

We are totally immersed in the 1917 trench warfare and its worst horrors.

The plot is totally fake and contrived.

Technically Riveting .

It's intense and thrilling, overall satisfying and reliable action scenes.

Straight up boring.

History is breathtaking, there is no time to breathe, you get involved in a way that has probably never been experienced.

It never bogs down, even in the slower parts, and keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time.

It's visceral, fast, exciting.

Very gripping and excellent all around.

Instead you have a dramatic thriller of a movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat, rooting for the hero.

What a movie, story is of course sad but top notch acting and as said, the cinematograhy is stunning, one shot, almost unbelievable.

The Cinematography and Screenplay by Robert Deakins is absolutely intense added with powerful visuals.

So boring...

Sam Mendes and Roger Deakins create a visually stunning war atmosphere with some incredible set designs.

But, later on, you may have to forward it due to it's slow pace, if you are not a tolerable person on delay.

Well worth the watch.

This movie is absolutely stunning.

The colours and expansive landscapes are spellbinding and the trench scenes are particularly gripping and immersive.

This movie make me boring especially after half duration

Pointless, shallow, boring.

It is SO BORING.

It captures the thrilling, intense, and awe-inspiring resplendent of war.

That's how beautiful the story is, showing intense courage amid vast carnage.

Just another way to feel immersed, having the sound of gunfire, explosions, footsteps, and other sound effects to make you feel the same way as the characters on screen.

Roger Deakins is in charge, so expect stunning cinematography and environments feeling both beautiful and raw.

this movie is waste of time.

Every scene feels like a painting and it is absolutely stunning.

I mean, sure there's some interesting shots and some good scenes, but it's just so bland.

These two "superheroes" would've been toast once they encountered the enemy if it was a documentary, but alas it's an entertaining movie.

It's definitely worth the watch!

I was looking forward to this after all the rave reviews, but aside from the technical achievements with the whole single shot thing, it's just a boring movie.

The story, while relatively simple, is engaging enough to keep you invested in the objective of the main characters.

Boring emotional drama.

It was hollow and boring.

I've never before seen a movie shot like this, and it was a thrilling experience.

But, if like me, you actually have excellent taste in cinema and demand more than just a few cinematic pictures to make an enjoyable film, avoid this movie at all costs.

The storyline is so engaging and the action sequences are unparalleled.

It's captivating the whole time with unexpected twists and turns.

Because of its unique way it was filmed of one giant long take (well, a few obvious cuts big scenes), you either are going to get really bored or you are going to love how it feels non-stop and engaging.

Still, the action is compelling.

Predictable and bland!

Give us character and substance instead of bland novelty.

the movie is also ONE SHOT , like there is no transition, which more stunning.

In a way it feels like the buildup to a jumpscare in a horror movie however where jumpscares can be somewhat predictable in when they strike 1917 savours it's chances to shock the audience.

I should have walked out early like I did when Forest started running in that other academy award winning piece of garbage.

The way it was filmed is a way for the audience to be completely immersed in the story.

The level of tension as scene after scene continued without a cut, the camera spinning or fixing in place at unpredictable intervals.

I FELT AS IF I HAD BEEN DRAGGED THROUGH BARBED WIRE .

it was a very fascinating movie directed by Sam Mendes.

Stunning upon first viewing.

Prepared to be on the edge of your seat.

World War One involved a plethora of fascinating characters and events and was a truly paradigm-shifting moment in history......

BUT On a personal level, I did not feel as much involved as I hoped I would, all the plot twists were predictable so I was not able to empathize too much with the lead character.

Entertaining .

Movies like "1917" , in all honesty, don't need special treatments and reviews as they speak for themselves, especially, if not recounted by real experiences of combat veterans, making their reviews even more intense and filled with truthful realism.

However, the story is a bit dull, lacking story twist to attract my eye ball.

My wife really wanted to watch this movie, 2 hours of mind-numbing boredom, don't bother.

Stunning, everything, Music, directions, cinematography , performance ......

But well beyond the ingenuity of the one-take shot, the story keeps you on the edge of your seat.

This movie is intense, heartbreaking, mesmerizing, and at times stressful.

Aircraft flew slower than cars drive back then, so shouting could have worked to.

Yes, because it's a thrilling action adventure, BRILLIANTLY photographed.

That's it, I throw up my arms and leave the theater to wait for my girlfriend outside.

Breathtaking war film.

Pointless to explain more, this movie is really good.

Cinematographer - Roger deakins, was fantastic, absolutely, some stunning.

Wow, just wow, amazing, stunning, thrilling....

Worth watching .

I watched it in 2 sessions as I was bored after 20 minutes.

I'll try to keep it short so: Enviroment 10/10 Actors 9/10 Story 5/10 Emotional engagement 9/10 Feels like a real war(thrilling, scary, OMG scenes...

It totally immersed us in the atmosphere of the First World War.

Slowest War Movie Ever- Yawn .

Nice predictable ending.

Because, much of the movie has been made by using of "one single shot" (very linear plot) approach (like in the Birdman) for me, after an about one hour of its runtime "1917" became little bit too much and dull experience.

It's a boring movie.

It was an intense ride that kept me on the edge of my seat for the full 2 hours.

It's intense, it's sad, and it has great pacing.

"1917" (2019) is a stunning war drama within the frontlines of World War I.

I've never before seen a movie shot like this, and it was a thrilling experience.

Exciting .

It's more of a technical exercise with flat characterizations instead of an engaging vision about the Great War.

Having said that, it's an amazingly emotional war film, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone.

The protagonists engage in a series of mind boggling dumb non-soldier like behaviors.

It's intense and gripping.

Absolutely Stunning .

Don't Waste Your Time .

Based on intense angels, slow moving pictures that forces the audience to watch and watch and watch, and be in the middle of the war.

This Was such an enjoyable event.

i enjoyed it

Hell, even a game has more action and exciting scenes.

Breathtaking cinematography .

The film does not try to be a documentary, but instead uses a blank canvass to weave a compelling story of intense personal interest.

Painfully Boring .

Boring beginning .

An astonishing cinematographic feat with lifelike production design and evocative score.

I'm not in love with the characters but I reckon that's like life, the characters are flawed but the world the story takes place in is stunning,The barn scene was horrible and real.

This film left me completely drained, absolutely stunning piece of cinema.

But no story...

More good: it's a fascinating and thrilling spectacle from start to finish.

This meticulous selection of montage style deepened the reality of the viewing experience, and made it easy for the viewer to identify with the story's heroes, their sense of time and its centrality, whether at the level of the drama or the level of narration that increases the dose of excitement and suspense awaiting the unexpected that can be expected.

If you're not an intelligent adult, you might find this compelling.

This is as gripping as it gets.

Stunning war epic .

Exciting .

I was expecting a war movie but got 2 guys walking around the country for 2 hours now dont get me wrong it started off very interesting but got boring very fast.

yawn, falling asleep.

On top of being an engaging story, it is filmed in such a way that it makes it feel like one continuous take, for the most part, which ultimately begs the core actors to deliver their brilliant performances.

The masterful way in which this film is shot amplifies this tension astoundingly, the incredible cinematography from Roger Deakins makes you feel as if you are standing right there next to the characters experiencing everything firsthand whilst also managing to look absolutely stunning in its aesthetic.

It is also a stunning movie that looks like it is done in one shot to exactly transcend your film viewing experience, taking you into the desolate world of war-torn France as we follow the soldiers passing through unimaginable lands.

As a result it was boring and distracting.

The plot is straightforward and predictable and the characters don't have much depth.

The cinematography is incredible , the acting is top notch, George Mackay was robbed for not being nominated for an Oscar , the story will have you engrossed and on the edge of your seat.

I found it quite boring from the scene where the Lance Corporal encounters the sniper; the long scene with the girl and the baby; after he is ¿shot?

Don't waste your time!.

Gripping moments where you are horrified you do not know what is going to happen.

Fascinating endeavor, hollow in execution.

Boring.

The technical excellence blends into the gripping storyline seamlessly, and we feel for the soldiers as they embark on a near-impossible journey that ultimately, is for their reunion with their loved ones.

Not only is the movie shot and made to look like one continuous long shot, but the entire film takes place in real time (with the exception of when a character is knocked unconscious for a few hours), and it's an on the edge of your seat roller coaster ride from the time the title screen comes on at the beginning to the time when the credits roll.

I was dragged in to the year 1917 and so thrilling journey.

Gorgeous backgrounds and the horrors of the trench warfare are brought home in stunning reality.

So Intense .

Suited for families, because there is NONE real war horror to be seen, everything is presented as another exciting action game without disgusting violence, evertything constantly smoothed over by glorious sounding violins.

I didn't care much about any of the characters, they were uninteresting and monotone throughout.

Cliche after cliche that had more connection to 'Blackadder' than a drama.

The story was gripping from start to the finish and very realistic.

There are only so many contrived coincidences and inexplicably missed shots you can take before suspending your disbelief becomes impossible and all you can do is laugh.

A boring movie, if there is less than one star I will give it 0 or even in minus !!!

Slow and hard to understand .

1917 - 7/10Compelling visuals and masterful technical filmmaking from cinematography to editing to sound mixing - all fantastic (although, some of the "invisible cuts" were blatantly obvious) The fact that it's based on Sam Mendes' grandfathers memoirs also makes it all the more compelling.

Tense and suspenseful throughout.

The plot isn't character driven, the characters are pointless, do not develop and are basically scenery.

1917 delivers some stunning long shots that will take your breath away.

It still has a lot of wonderful moments and is well worth watching I would say just for the production values and sets.

I think there are at least two dozens of much better and entertaining war films, some of them from even eighty years ago.

The film also quite slow and full of boring conversation!

Instead just seeing them scout around was very intense as invisible enemies are always hinted to be nearby.

I really felt immersed and i wished there had been more to watch.

Sorry but it was so sad, slow moving, sound issues, and I am so disappointed overall considering all the rave reviews.

I have nothing further to add, other than the compelling need for eternal remembrance to those who sacrificed their lives in any way, we can not fathom.

Painfully boring storyline and movie.

Maybe it was because I couldn't focus on the visual effects to get the feel of the scene, so the plot was dragged down.

1917 is clearly a riveting film with a captivating timeline.

Quite a slow movie that is quite unbelievable, lots of very basic mistakes throughout movie.

This was boring eventless movie.

This movie really puts you on the edge of your seat it really does.

The main characters are annoying, boring and acted so bad it hurts.

All in all, a breathtaking movie experience.

It was way too clean and cliche.

This movie was so incredibly boring for a war movie, it was almost as unbelievable as the events in this movie.

It is so intense that I had to hold my breath many times and got goose bumps everywhere.

The one shot was clever contributed to how slow this movie was.

Great sound design, compelling story and characters-and the one shot cinematography is epic.

It can get intense in most parts and emotional in some parts.

Visually stunning.

Confusing.

Stunning from start to finish .

I was captivated from the very beginning and, considering the subject matter, enjoyed it.

This is one of the worst movies I've seen in a long time.

The story is slow narrated.

It was intense at times and emotional when it needs to be.

They should've cut down on some of the many fantastic actors that had pointless 5 minute appearances (if that) and paid some more extras.

However, the story was a bit ho hum, bland and not very believable.

1917 is most certainly worth watching.

marvellous and stunning .

Neverrminding the screenplay and my rating of 6 stars, it certainly worth watching at least one time.

I enjoyed it, It just gave such a sense of realism throughout, it left me so immersed in their/ his journey that I didn't want it to end.

1917 is a cinematic triumph in terms of its technicalities, the single-take storytelling style (like in a third-person shooter video-game), and the compelling tale it tells about war, survival, brotherhood, and compassion.

It is important to mention the ending; this film absolutely has you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end, and while it should have been a satisfying ending, with the characters succeeding in their mission, it leaves you feeling slightly defeated.

Breathtaking .

Totally worth watching and I'll probably watch it again to see what I may have missed the first time around.

Watch Alexander starring Colin Farrell instead if you want to waste a few hours of your life.

exciting, and provocative.

One of the best movie i have seen off late,,, gud acting by all the charecters.. specially the one who will go till the end to carry the msg of stopping attacks,,, mind blowing performance of all the actors

° The Sniper and Bridge Scene was So Intense!

No story, character development, or awesome battle scenes.

It's a waste of time !

intense and immediate .

Technocrats are boring as was the movie 1917.

All the events on the way to the destination are great and exciting to watch.

Breathtaking and masterful.

Boring .

War movies are so easy to make exciting and this was just kinda flat the whole way through.

However, the contrived coincidence moments involving the milk and the truck transfer just appearance out of nowhere was kinda jarring.

Its gripping story is filmed in a very interesting way that really elevates the viewing experience and the cinematography really deserved the Oscar it got.

Absolutely Mind blowing On what this movie sets for It,I was Speechless walking out of this movie,So If you don't have anything to do go See this Movie!

At times, it even becomes difficult to differentiate between real and dreamy - the sets have been marvellously put together, the flare-lit shots look brilliant, and the fluidic feel of the cinematography keeps viewers on the edge of their seats.

Overall entertaining.

The movie was slow and the actors had thick accents making them difficult to understand.

What is wrong with the movie is that it is a little slow, as if you feel that there is no struggle with time.

Very tense and keeps you biting your nails on the edge of your seat.

The running scene is one of the most expertly crafted and intense moments in any film ever, even more than in most horror movies.

Stunning .

The viewer is immedialely anxious, and immersed in the story.

The format makes the audience's vision into this world limited, albeit, that vision is still epic, and breathtaking nonetheless.

Enjoyed it even .

A very well done movie that is visually stunning.

A super boring war film!

The youth of the soldiers, horror of trench warfare and the pure mental, emotional and physical exhaustion extracted by a state of perpetual combat combined for an evocative experience that was simply overwhelming.

I also have to say I found the scene with the girl and the baby to be a bit cliche'.

The movie is also very boring after about 40 mins the bad story just stops and repeats the nonsense that happened earlier and completing the series of miracles that is truly unbelievable.

It it beautiful, intense, and depressing all within two hours.

It is stunning and moved me.

Even if afterwards you decide that actually you didn't like it as much as you expected, for the two hours you are watching it, you will be utterly immersed and you can't say that of too many movies.

It's one of the most tense and exciting movies I ever seen

Then some stupid and silly shooting scenes which I find funny instead of intense at all.

Director Sam Mendes and cinematographer Roger Deakins have created a thrilling work with real-time intensity.

Boring .

It worth a loud clap for its performance, direction, storyline basically everything in this movie is excellent and enjoyable.

A maudlin story and a trite rendition of WW1 trench warfare.

So every little detail we get to know about the characters feels compelling.

Consensus: 1917 is a visually stunning film, however, this is brought down by a story that never reaches its full potential, and an overall boring adventure.

Oh and two or three pretty pointless cameos to try and jazz the whole thing up couldn't really save a dreary and uninspiring plot and a rather unsatisfying experience.

It is gripping and moving all the way while paying tribute to those who made great sacrifices in World War I.

Still, Deakins's cinematography is stunning and even when the story lags the images we see are quite striking.

Also, his friend from the beginning that died 30 minutes in was pointless.

Cinematography is breathtaking .

It keeps you hooked and on the edge of your seat for its entire 2 hour duration.

The downside of this is that sustained periods without big moments, or engaging smaller drama, do give an up/down feeling to the pace of delivery.

This movie was very thrilling and a whole lot of fun to see in the cinema.

The 2 hours flew by, and was always on the edge of my seat.

The film shows their journey and the thrilling finale.

Intense and gripping.

A stunning work of art.

Extremely impressive and absorbing .

The journey is very absorbing and makes you feel the struggles and horrors of war.

boring .

Gripping and exhausting at the same time.

Overall its a boring and unoriginal movie.

That's way too predictable.

There are no artificial, invincible heroes - just men struggling to survive through constant vigilance, and it becomes more and more gripping as the action advances.

It completely sucked me in and kept me on the edge of my seat.

Immersive cinematography and stunning directing .

1917 is a powerful, riveting film about two soldiers undertaking a brutal mission to prevent a massacre.

Given the gravity of the historical subject and the truly visceral and real experience that should accompany any review thereof, I am very saddened by the pathetic treatment of the narrative evinced by the blithe, uninspiring and predictable dialogue.

7/10 for stunning One Shot.

This movie will keep you on the edge of your seat the entire way through, never giving you a chance to catch your breath.

Not relatives, boring, don't waste your time on it.

Moreover Dean-Charles Chapman and George Mackay are wonderful; they are like real soldiers and immersed themself in their character and make us travel.

Apart from that some scenes feel kind of pointless, one scene in particular featuring a woman in hiding with a young girl that doesn't really add anything to the movie, it could have been cut out and nothing would have changed.

While there are other compelling WWI movies, a war that has failed to ignite the same response and interest as WWII, especially in Hollywood, "1917" is a fine addition.

The title says it all, don't waste your time on this one.

The situations were very thrilling, highly practical and really true to life.

The most engrossing war movie I've ever seen.

Breathtaking .

Boring.

Every second and scene in this movie is intense and valuable.

Overrated and boring .

A stunning visual movie with cliche content .

Superbly engaging and affecting war drama, that doesn't let up even when it slows down.

If you still want know what is story of movie watch first and last 5 minutes of movie and you know everything, events in between are unrealistic or boring

A well made movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat

Having said that, there is enough excitement and suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Visually it was a stunning film, the scene with George MacKays character running through the ruined town was breathtaking, a real triumph.

The way the film illustrates the terrible waste of life, taking you right to the heart of the trenches and ultimately knowing that despite this short respite, nearly 10 million military personal died during WW1 really hits home.

Even in the "slower" portions the audience is left wondering what issue is going to arise next.

This film is made to look like it was shot in one-take and is used at its most effectively and brings you into the film even more creating one of the most intense films you'll see this year.

Visually stunning !!.

This was amazing , I enjoyed it and seeing WW1 from this one Camara motion was amazing , this opens up a new type of film where we don't randomly cut away to see another part of the story , it was continuous and an amazing ideaRecommended watching it if you haven't

The long lulls in between action do get almost dull and when the action happens the payoff isn't enough for putting up with the rest of it.

The narrative of the story was gripping.

Remarkable, Moving & Intense.

Boring!!

Even better what about a message airdrop from the slow and low flying British biplanes that are clearly cruising over the countryside?

Very engaging master piece.

Uniquely photographed, gripping drama .

I am surprised I liked it as much as I did since I always find WW1 movies kind of boring since its always about trench warfare.

All told, 1917 is an intense, well produced and ultimately enjoyable war film.

It was impressive, but it wasn't believable, the story and pace seemed to slow down too much too often, the magic of movies was broken by it in too many times and places throughout the film.

The plot was very weak losely following the 'saving private ryan' theme and there were some 'cheesy' moments with the woman with the baby etc. The beginning and end were very good but the middle just dragged and was a bit painful.

Performances of George Mackay and Dean-Charles Chapman are fantastic and the emotion they bring as soldiers in their situations is very realOf course, the one-shot take is stunning to see on screen, it completely immerses you into the story and for me, It worked a treatThe last 20 minutes of this...

A thrilling ride,will keep you on the edge of your seats .

Keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout its runtime.

What follows is not only visually remarkable with the superb cinematography of Roger Deakins, but a compelling journey that the audience is able to follow closely, owing to the film's 'one shot' style.

But well beyond the ingenuity of the one-take shot, the story keeps you on the edge of your seat.

What a waste of time .

The only few seconds which were enjoyable were the ones when the messengers were leaving the trenches, the guy playing the officer at the Yorks at least showed some talent.

This film kept me on the edge of my seat.

The story is predictable and boring.

It has stakes; it is intense, and it is psychologically raw enough to really hit at certain moments.

The level of tension as scene after scene continued without a cut, the camera spinning or fixing in place at unpredictable intervals.

The film is very boring, slow and ridiculous at times where the german soldier can't hit the lad from 10 metres.

Amateurish script resulted in a boring movie that was at least 50% filler.

Powerful Acting and Stunning War Visuals and Sound Design.

But my god is there any American cliche sauce left?

The most boring war movie ever .
