Conclusion: 3/5
You get the feeling in this that it was all about Brad Pitt and that all that mattered in this film. Shall I just say that the film is totally in love with him. There isn’t one scene without him in. This is a very tough, gory and grim film to watch. This is the best film that I have seen Shia LaBeouf in. Jason Isaacs is in this but way not long enough. His screen time is only about 5mins altogether. I found him to be totally convincing. I would have loved to have seen more of him as I think he is a brilliant actor. The whole screen lit up when he was on. It almost became a different film. The director had the actors fight each other on set before shooting scenes. This was to tighten their bond with each other and that actually came out very well in the film. Filmed in Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire, England. The scenes that I didn’t quite get or understand was all the scenes with the women in. I didn’t quite understand why two of the men went to their house or what in the film they were trying to prove. I felt it didn’t quite work. If you are looking for a film about war and tanks then I do think this is the film to watch. The main themes in this film are the evil in man, the reality of death and suffering and the pursuit of justice. There were quite a few scenes that are quite realistic and that actually show you what it was like in a tank and also what fighting was like it then. Just want to say check out Brad Pitt’s hair!!!!!!
