    Saw this film today. A photographic and artistic masterpiece. I am overwhelmed with the simplicity of the plot and the sheer magnificence of how it was made.

    I note the young actor George Mackay is not up for anOscar although many other nominations are being made. He is head and shoulders above some of the other nominees. Breathtaking. If you only like romances then don’t bother but if you loved the Revenant you will love this.

    I know both my children saw the TV ads and wanted to see it, just checked the age cert and looks like son will have to wait 6 months (I realise it won't still be in cinemas then), although I know he has got into a 15 film at our local cinema before.

    My 15 year old grandson went with his sister and mother at the weekend and loved it. It brings the reality of the war home in a way history lessons just can’t do.

    My friend’s daughter is an artist in London and worked on the set of the film! She has worked on lots of big films.

    I thought we'd seen all the first World War films we needed to see last decade, there were so many of them: "Journey's End" "Passchendale" War Horse" "Private Peaceful" etc. etc. and along comes yet another one...

    Well I can't wait to see it, given that my newspaper tells me it netted $36.5 million (£23 million)
    in box office takings in just its first weekend of opening at 3,434 cinemas in USA.

    That's more money than Star Wars including the recent Luke Skywalker film...and about time too.

    Yes, I would like to see this film. I feel that the horrors of World War I are being forgotten and we need reminding. Just looking at the monuments for both World Wars shows that there were many more military casualties in World War I in the UK and Canada..
