Goofs

Several shots of tanks appear in the film, both Mark V (Mark Five) and Mark V* (Mark Five Star). They have been coloured green. In reality, tanks of these types were painted "a neutral brown colour". See the article by the British Tank Museum which states that. "Surrendering to the inevitable, towards the end of 1916 it was ordered that the tanks should be painted in a 'neutral brown colour' all over." The staff at the Museum told me they were surprised that the filmmakers didn't consult them. See more »

Should be mandatory in all highschools/universities/politicians
7 December 2018 | by MoistMoviesSee all my reviews

Besides it being a incredible feat of cinema that many reviewers have already pointed out.

The message of this Documentary needs to be solidified in every person under 30s brain and every politician. I went to see this luckily at a small theater. Me and my friend both in our 20's were by far the youngest in the small crowd.

Its a very heavy message of responsibly to ones country that is necessary under certain circumstances, yet it should be a responsibly that's to be a avoided at all costs if possible. That we should do whatever we can to not forget the atrocities of war and to live in a way that doesnt foster a scenario of resentment towards our fellow man that could cause this to happen again. Especially since modern warfare now includes nuclear arms, this scale of conflict ever again would devastate the entire planet.
