What we think

Its central conceit always keeps you at arm's length, but embraced as an intersection of cinema and gaming, it works like gangbusters.

What others think

Sam Mendes’s 1917 is an amazingly audacious film; as exciting as a heist movie, disturbing as a sci-fi nightmare.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
Although 1917’s filmmaking very much brings attention to itself, it’s an astonishing piece of filmmaking, portraying war with enormous panache. This is big-screen bravado, and then some.
Alex Godfrey Empire
Any fears you might have going in that technical trickery is usually short for “gimmick” are instantly allayed by the film’s palpable sense of intimacy.
Peter Travers Rolling Stone
The director's descent into the hell of the Great War relies on a bold storytelling technique, but the gamble doesn't just pay off, it makes the entire movie.
Katie Erbland IndieWire
Astonishing as the filmmaking can be at times, it’s Mendes’ attention to character, more than the technique, that makes 1917 one of 2019’s most impressive cinematic achievements.
