Review: ‘1917’ Might Be The Best Movie Of 2019
By: Scott Mendelson (Forbes)

Universal just dropped a bomb on the ongoing Oscar season, because Sam Mendes’ 1917 is indeed one of the best movies of the year, if not THE best. That’s a conversation for another day, but the single-take World War I action drama, concerning two grunts attempting to race across enemy lines to deliver crucial, life-saving intelligence to allies readying to wage war, is a genuine marvel of movie magic. With one brief, and entirely fair, exception, this entire 110-minute picture unfolds as a single long take as the camera swoops in and out, dives here and there and essentially creates the illusion of a real-time war flick for its duration. Are there cheats? Oh, I’m sure there are. But, honestly, who cares? Movie magic is about the illusion of reality, and 1917 absolutely sells the truthfulness of its core gimmick.”

1917 review: Sam Mendes’s turns western front horror into a single-shot masterpiece
By: Peter Bradshaw (The Guardian)
RATING: 5 stars out of 5

“This phantasmagoric first world war nightmare from the British director is ambitious and unshakeable storytelling. Sam Mendes’s 1917 is an amazingly audacious film; as exciting as a heist movie, disturbing as a sci-fi nightmare. It is a first world war drama of the Western Front and a terrible journey undertaken by two boys like a ghost train ride into a day-lit house of horror, periodically descending into night as if going underwater and then resurfacing into an alien world, bright with menace.”

1917 Review – IGN
By: Jim Vejvoda (IGN)
RATING: 9.5 out of 10 stars

“Sam Mendes’ 1917 is one of the best films of 2019. Set over less than 24 hours on the Western Front, the harrowing 1917 is both simple in its story and breathtaking in its execution, intimate yet epic. Director Sam Mendes has delivered a completely engrossing survival thriller about two young British soldiers, Schofield (George MacKay) and Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman), on a perilous mission behind enemy lines.”

‘1917’ is a bold war movie whose striking cinematography demands to be seen on the big screen

“Director Sam Mendes may have made the next great war movie. This one is going to be studied and discussed for a very long time.”

1917 Review
By: Edward Douglas (
RATING: 10 out of 10 stars

“There’s a long, storied tradition of war movies capturing some of the greatest battles in history, yet seemingly, not so many of them, at least not in recent memory, have been set during World War I vs. other wars. Peter Jackson’s 2018 doc They Shall Not Grow Old allowed people to see actual film reel footage that was sitting in the archives for almost 100 years, and that centennial may be what’s creating new interest in what happened in the so-called “war to end all wars.” Filmmaker Sam Mendes (Skyfall) had a grandfather in the first World War who told him stories when he was younger, inspiring him to create an original story with co-writer Kristy Wilson-Cairns about two young soldiers on an important but seemingly impossible mission. What Mendes does in 1917 with his relatively small cast and a much larger crew is create a war movie that might be compared more to Alejandro Iñarritu’s The Revenant than modern-day war movies like Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk or Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan. Much of that has to do with the minimalism of characters and words that puts the focus squarely on the two young men’s journey amidst the chaos going on around them.”
