Sam G’s review published on Letterboxd:
Once I heard this came out, it kinda set me in the mood for a War movie.
I actually haven’t seen the highly regarded classic, which I probably should have before seeing this, but this was easier to access and I just couldn’t resist. I love War films so from the jump I was into this story. Familiar overall, but brings out the horror in war as these things usually do best and that’s basically something I’ll always be enthralled by. Does help, this movie looks amazing and the visuals take it to that other level. The performances are also really great and once we get to those battle scenes, I was captured by every second. I can understand it not being like the book, by throwing most of the character development out the window, but I was all the way absorbed into this story, till the very last heart crushing frame and this was just incredible. 9.2/10🪖
