    Great film. Historically reverent, respectful and authentic. A Herculean effort to put together.

    I am blown away at this incredible movie! This is what the world has been waiting for...a comprehensive historical review of the war that was suppose to “end all wars”!! I saw it in Charleston two weeks ago and even my daughter in law loved it...it is in color and it’s amazing!!!

    It was incredibly well done and while they didn't have sound back then had you not realized it when you watched the movie you wouldn't have known that it wasn't authentic. I find it interesting that someone would "rate" a movie that they haven't seen. It is being shown at different times in different areas. If you see it, do yourself a favor and stay till the bitter end. It's too late now for Island 16, but hopefully this movie shall be shown elsewhere. It was truly remarkable.

    A simple google search reveals they used forensic lip readers to determine what the soldiers were saying and then hired voice actors from the particular regiment's region to voice the words over the authentic footage. It further adds to the life that is given to the film by the frame rate adjustments and colorization.

    They didn't have sound in the films back then, so I tend to doubt the authenticity of the movie.
