A great classic

I had the privilege to see this flick on the big screen but since it was already 15 years ago, a re-watch was really needed. And I wasn't disappointed.

This is a fantastic war film which is very underrated. This is a film about World War I which is the first film that I have seen about that. People seem to make more films about World War II because it was probably darker. This film showed both the similarity and difference between World Wars I and II. This film had often mixed ways with both films. The story is rather dark with very hard hitting ... read more

The futility and irony of the war in the trenches in WWI is shown as a unit commander in the French army must deal with the mutiny of his men and a glory-seeking general after part of his force falls back under fire in an impossible attack.

" Notes: Basically, the whole thing is just so shocking, heartbreaking and downright revolting. In my opinion, it is easily the best movie starring Kirk Douglas and one of the best directed by Stanley Kubrick. It is basically one of the greatest anti-war movies, it is as simple as that and even though it was only Kubrick's 3rd directing feature, he was apparently already one of the great masters. For example, the battle scene was just really impressive. It might not have been as bloody as 'Savin"
