Movie Review 1917

Highly recommend it! Great storyline and character movie. Focus was not on the death count or explosions (though they were there). Simply about taking care of your teammates and honoring your word.

I agree. The whole movie was like a Message to Garcia on steroids.
Nunchaku skills... bowhunting skills... computer hacking skills... Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills!

Who is John Galt?

Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.

It was a good movie, probably not a movie for a lot of folks. The main characters did a good job portraying their parts.
The only reason some people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.

I thought it was good but not great. Seemed a little bit short and “unfinished” to me. When it was over and the credits rolled, the entire audience sat there for several minutes, waiting to see if there were more scenes coming.
