You should see it with the captions on Monday morning or early afternoon. Only $5 and it helps with the understanding the British accents.

- I loved 'Saving Private Ryan' (on my top 10 list) so had high hopes for 1917.
- The promise of very few 'cuts/scene changes' intrigued me as well.
- Outstanding sets and production - truly amazing
- Most of the film puts the audience right there with them, very close in the action.
- Did not notice much CGI use throughout
- Biggest negative = the British accents... some very hard to follow...
- Not TOO much gruesome war stuff (if that's a turnoff for you)
- Outstanding acting - esp considering the filming perspective and action
- 2 hours, with much of the time immersing the audience with 'intensiveness'.
- Only twice during the movie did I have 'give me a break' moments

Bottom line SO WORTH seeing, so impactful. I may see it again.
