A great survivalist POW story, showcasing David Lean’s mastery of the craft of epic filmmaking.
Truly a classic that withstands the testament of time
Amazing classic war film. Great to watch as a father son movie. That’s how I watched it.
One of my favorite movies. It's so epic and emotionally impactful. It shows the horror and consequences of war.
The kind of movie made by the boys to resonate with the boys. Very three dimensional characters and great acting.
Good movie excellent scenery deserves a watch.
Spends a lot of time with its characters, all building to a spectacular ending
Well-directed film beautiful cinematography and great acting, along with a well-crafted and perfectly-paced, but anaffecting, story
