      Good subject matter is fine. . . The main melody is disgusting

      It's bad because its main theme is too strong and it completely ignores the textual research and demeans the enemy

      . I really don't know how this film dares to claim to be based on real events. .

      About the research: There are few guns, the only bright spot is the Shaosha light machine gun and the Hachkes heavy machine gun. . . The result and together gave 4 shots. . . Shaosha is estimated that it is not a prop gun, so it cannot be fired. . . Too disappointed that the...

      story after

      After watching it, I felt it was good, and after I wanted to know, I checked the protagonist in the film: Major Whittlesey, whose birth and growth were omitted, after being rescued from the encirclement on October 7, 1918, as follows:
      Promoted from major to lieutenant colonel;
      10.29 Repatriated to the United States;
      12.5 Honorably discharged according to Special Orders No. 259;
      12.6 Received the Medal of Honor (the highest medal in the U.S. Army, two of his subordinates...

      No guns, no meals, the Germans sent us! ~ What a gentleman to fight in World War I! If you insist on it for a week, it will be like this, and Shangganling will be even more...

      In addition to the American arrogance and nerdy "loyalty", from the scene to the plot, there is nothing to...

      Quite true, the tactical literacy of the Americans in World War I was really not even the slightest bit worse, and even the shelling would hit their own...

      7 points. Adapted from the real battle, this motley army lost more than 60% of its personnel, and the intensity of the battle can be imagined. Due to cost constraints, the movie could not be as epic and magnificent as "Saving Private Ryan". At the same time, as a group play, the characterization was not successful. Except for Major Fantasy, others have some poker faces for the audience to leave. not impressed. In fact, it is not just a battle, there are many things in life, even if you are in a...

      Cepheglia: It's done.

      Rosen: It's not done. Anyhow, why should I share this with you?

      Cepheglia: Because I killed the guy you took it off.

      Rosen: Minor detail.

    • Yoder: Hey, how come nobody ever calls me Bob?

      Cepheglia: Who's Bob?

      Rosen: He's Bob you dumb Dago. Haven't you ever heard of a first name?

      Cepheglia: Your first name is Private. You're gonna be Private all your life Rosen. You'll never make Corporal.

      Rosen: All I wanna make is civilian.

    • Maj. Whittlesey: Lieutenant Leak, fine officer, from Texas...

      Capt. McMurtry: We lost over 60 men to our own fire today. We heave less then 200 able troops left. I don't know how they keep doing it.

      Maj. Whittlesey: Don't sell them short, Captain. Two days ago we had a Chinese working our field-phone, an American-Indian for a runner; they're both dead now but that's not the point. These Italians, Irish, Jews, and Poles, they'd never hire me as an attorney; we wouldn't be seen at the same events. But we will never, in our lives, enjoy the company of finer soldiers or better men then we do tonight.

      Capt. McMurtry: Major, I was with Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders. And I have never served with a finer officer then you. Do you know that your men would do anything, go anywhere for you?

      Maj. Whittlesey: Thank you, George.
