THE GREAT WAR (Theatrical Release USA 2019)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.2|5.0 Starsììì 

The Great War—weak presentation that relies on a stage setting that varies little throughout the film—does not do justice to the story it has to tell.  While one recognizes Ron Perlman, the other actors do not have a commanding presence that creates the commanding performance. The plotline is shallowly developed and the reasoning for the final fight seems irresponsible, tasteless, and wasteful. There is little to recommend here other than the use of High Definition video that creates crystal clear video imagery. 


WWI soldiers fight up to the last minute that the war officially ends.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

No. A better war flick is Saving Private Ryan with Tom Hanks and Matt Damon.
