Spends a lot of time with its characters, all building to a spectacular ending
Obi Wan doesn’t use a lightsaber once in this fucking movie!
Amazing classic war film. Great to watch as a father son movie. That’s how I watched it.
Well-directed film beautiful cinematography and great acting, along with a well-crafted and perfectly-paced, but anaffecting, story
An unusual and exceptional war film with characters based on real people. Alec Guinness’s performance is great. Excellent cinematography.
Classic WWII film. A layered look of characters and human survival instinct. Timeless, beautiful cinematography.
Alec Guinness's character growth is what sets this film apart from films of a similar ilk in the pre-Saving Private Ryan era of war films.
Nothing short of a cinematic classic. Slow but beautifully directed and acted.
Film classic with excellent drama, characters, action, music and acting. Downticked only because it's untrue - the POWs didn't collaborate.
Really enjoyable, absolute classic, if you like war movies you’ll enjoy this one for sure
An all time great, everyone should see this tale of determination in the face of despair.
A fantastic world war 2 drama. Alec Guinness is simply amazing here.
Without a doubt, one of the greatest war films ever made, Lean weaves a riveting film based on complex—and dark—themes of honor and duty.
An enduring classic with memorable characters, plot and set pieces. A must watch in my opinion.
One of my favorite movies ever. Masterpiece.
Impressive technical achievements, a bit historically inaccurate however
Great movie, is incredibly long but you will hardly notice the length
This masterpiece contains a spellbinding performance by Alec Guinness, suspense that rivals Hitchcock, and fruit bats. Madness!
Beautifully shot story of resilience in the face of despair.
"Madness". Most won't understand the ending.
