Passchendaele Reviews

David Jenkins
Time Out
Top Critic IconTop Critic

As a director, Gross paints in big, emotive strokes, and though his dialogue often feels too tied to historical fact, this old-fashioned, patriotic war movie has its heart in the right place.

The scenes may be embarrassing, but at least Gross can't be accused of playing it safe.

A war movie that can't make up its mind whether war is bad or something one can be proud of.

Passchendaele hearkens back to war films of decades past, when patriotism, valour and integrity were presented without irony. But it is infused with the stoicism of people who know it is their job to try to find meaning within an insane situation.

Toronto fest opener crudely welds the grisly verisimilitude of Saving Private Ryan to the contempo cultural revisionism of Pearl Harbor but can't forge the disparate tones into a powerful whole.
