At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (Captain Fantastic's George MacKay) and Blake (Game of Thrones' Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. 

In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers - Blake's own brother among them.

Must get through

A WW1 tale of the need to fulfill a mission to avert catastrophe. The Charge of the Light Brigade would have learned from this story. Well told on the big screen in a largely grey khaki monochrome effect. German militarism only temporarily subdued.


Reviewer: WarfilmfanDate: 2020-02-12

As war films go, not quite in the same league as Saving Private Ryan. Not sure why people are banging on about the 'one take' being so marvellous. Also, the plot seems a bit unbelievable at times. E.g. German pilot reaction, woman & baby scene.


Reviewer: ThemanwhopaysDate: 2020-02-08

Way too clever for it's own good. The fake single shot thing was very distracting. The effects are incredible and the rats are big. It felt like I was watching somebody play a computer game on YouTube. Not a patch on Dunkirk.


Reviewer: Tell It Like It IsDate: 2020-02-07

A very slick film, believable actors in the two main roles and some surprise cameos along the way. A well told story that moves you and grips you however it is an A to B story that means once you've watched it you probably won't again.
