All Quiet on the Western Front

All Quiet on the Western Front ★★★½

Maybe it's because I'm already non-violent and anti-war. Or maybe it's because I'm such an admirer of the original 1930 movie. But this movie abused its point a few too many times by the end.

That being said, you have to appreciate the craft that went into making this version. On a technical level, it's the best war movie we've seen since 1917. It just doesn't have the same emotional resonance for me as 1917 and certainly not the original it's based on.
