1917 (2019) (BLU-RAY/DVD REVIEW)
DIRECTED BY: Sam Mendes
Starring: Dean-Charles Chapman, George MacKay
RATED: R/REGION A/2:39/1080P/NUMBER OF DISCS 2
AVAILABLE FROM Universal Studios

In 1917 at the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (MacKay) and Blake (Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers—Blake’s own brother among them.

1917 is one of the best shot films I’ve seen in a very long. This World War I story tells about a man on a mission along with his friend to get from one place during the war to another and war his brother’s squad of the trap they are heading into and what they have to deal with along the way. With a movie like this, you can never be too sure and there are a whole lot of tense moments coming at you in this one. That doesn’t even count just the moments of dread this one has along the way as well. It also has some of the best acting you’ll see in a recent movie as well. You feel the story you see on the screen because the cast makes it really believable and that’s why 1917 works really well.

There’s something about war movies that oftentimes just works really well. Or at least it does when it has the right director behind the camera. 1917 has a very good director behind the camera and the story told here is a very gripping and compelling tale. It also dives into a very violent story from time to time too. 1917 is one of the better war movies to come out in a long time and if you have not seen it yet then I highly suggest you do. It’s just a really solid movie. From the acting to the story, to the way this whole thing looks. It all just works and makes for a very good movie.
