    Saw this last night, glad I made the effort to watch it at the cinema, definitely the type of film that would be more enjoyable on the big screen. Having a whole film shot in what appears to be a couple of continuous scenes was really impressive, really heightened the traumatic nature of the story.

    Saw it last night at an IMAX, if ever a film was made for IMAX it's this one.

    Very few youngsters at my showing, I'd be interested to know what young people made of this film. My gran lost her husband and two brothers at the Somme, when I was growing up in the 60's all the old fellas had fought in that war, so the fact that it has now slipped beyond living memory feels very real for me.

    I would urge anyone who has not seen it to watch the Peter Jackson documentary They Shall Not Grow Old.

    Have to agree. Saw the film last night and thought it was disappointing given the hype.

    I watched it on IMAX.. not sure it was worth the extra £... It was OK (a novel way of filming) until the plane crash part ... then it got a little OTT / silly

    Glad I watched it but not sure I get the hype

    It did make me think that the things they portrayed were happening throughout the war.. A totally senseless waste of life on all sides

    Don't tell me what happened to the Plantagenet cunts. I'm still at the Normans.

    Seen this said a couple of times on this thread. What is it after the plane crash you thought was silly?

    it may spoil it for others if I mention the specific details but the altercation with the pilot and the random meeting he had in the town for example...
