World War I movies don't drag crowds....remember Spielberg's 'War Horse', although personally I really like it

As a combat veteran and historian I can honestly say I was floored by this movie. It was easily believable that the things in this movie happened. Probably not to two men, but they happened, I have no doubt.

I saw it a couple of days ago - it is stunning! The attention to detail in the sets is extraordinary. The technique of telling the story in real time makes it very compelling and tense. I strongly recommend seeing it.
