It’s the time of the year that the Oscar hopefuls start hitting cinemas. Leading the charge this week is 1917, a strong contender for Best Picture with rave reviews all round.


1917

Age Restriction: 13 L V

At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (Captain Fantastic’s George MacKay) and Blake (Game of Thrones’ Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers–Blake’s own brother among them.

What Critical Hit has to say

1917 is a cinematic masterpiece in every sense of the word. What director Sam Mendes and cinematographer Roger Deakins has done here is marry technical miracle with raw human art on a transcendent level, giving us not just one of the greatest war films ever made, but probably the best you will see this year. – 9/10
