Released in 1930, this classic war piece slightly let me down. This is a very good movie, no doubt. The visual effects and battle sequences were fantastic, especially for a film that is over 80 years old. The visuals were even better than another great WW1 classic, Wings, which also blew me away. This film was completely ahead of its time. Also, the message is very powerful. This is one of the absolute best anti-war films around, even in its old age. But, the acting was mediocre and the dialogue bordered on terrible at times.
