0.5 out of 10 zzzzzzzzz

you'd think with such a great cast that this would be a classic but the director ruined it as he does with a lot of his films, think about the film 'new world' and you'll get a feel for this one. It starts with deserting soldiers philosophising about war on and island and is so boring I'm tempted to turn it off right then....I should have. Terrible rubbish. If you're really into terrence mallicks style then you will like this but otherwise avoid. I wish I had.

it is a slow film but I love it. the cinematography is superb and the pace is perfect. the voiceovers from various characters are inspired. just sit back on a sunday evening, slow down and enjoy the sights and sounds. one of my favourite films.

Same type of old war movie. Voiceovers are really annoying . Not a patch on movies like " All quiet on the western front" or "Platoon " .
