    The setup for this movie is based on bad decisions which is common. While the predicament unlikely to happen, it was still believable for the film.
    The first part is getting into the situation, next is realizing the situation, and then attempting to get out of the situation. All of this requires tension and relief. It does have that and some "I hope that never happens to me" injuries.

    The snow scapes are nicely filmed as every film shot is…

    I went into this not knowing anything and I think I appreciated it more because of that. The opening scene was fun and hooked me in.

    We then get a Utopia that is not quite all it is cut out to be. The fifties angle was great and all the nuances dropped along the way were intriguing.

    Whew! This is a cinematic achievement. It is not just a film but also a harrowing experience.

    The camera work and cinemaphotography are a major part of this film. You feel like you are right there. The long shots without edit in this movie are super impressive.

    It is not an easy film as it shows the brutality of WW I. It is intense and your blood pressure will change more than once.

    This film should be seen on a big screen. The sound and soundtrack enhance this experience.

    Brutal, sad, honest, and an experience you will not soon forget.

    Peace, it really is worth it.

    No spoilers or plot details here. Chalk me up as one of the people who enjoyed this film.
    I am reacting on feelings here and I felt happy with this and I was smiling at the end.
    I have no idea if this is how the arc was originally intended or not. Certainly neither of the two earlier films in this trilogy could be ignored. Yet, I feel an honest effort was made to please old school Star Wars fans…
