Directed by Saul Dibb; starring Paul Bettany, Sam Claflin and Asa Butterfield, Journey’s End is a war movie set in a dugout in Aisne, France in 1918.
Journey’s End is a story in which a group of British soldiers who are awaiting their fate and happen to be led by the the mentally disintegrating young officer Stanhope (Claflin)…
I’m interested because this trailer reminds me of a somewhat similar war movie I enjoyed more than expected. Namely, The Siege of Jadotville (2016), I’m onlso intrigued by the ‘mentally disintegrating young officer’ angle.
Stephen Graham, Toby Jones, Tom Sturridge and Theo Barklem-Biggs also star.
I remember being very excited after seeing the Mordecai teasertrailer in late 2014, for reasons including very promising dialogue and Johnny Depp.
What I didn’t anticipate is that upon seeing the David Koepp directed movie, my favourite thing about it would be the aerial shot special effects for the film’s various locations.
Why this particular response? It’s the overcooked accents that spoilt the experience really. Not to say that everything else about the movie is great, mind you. It may simply be the case that Charlie Mordecai’s particular brand of eccentricity is really just best enjoyed in small doses. I.e. the movie’s fun trailer.
Am I missing something? Did anyone absolutely love it?
Happy Film Loving, though, for me, I guess not in this case :-(… :-)
