Audience Reviews for The Lost Battalion
You can see many differences in how WWI and WWII were fought in this movie. Rick Schroder did a fantastic job in this movie based on a true story.
This was rather graphic but it's a true account of our WWI battle against the Germans in the Argonne Forest.
WWI movies are uncommon. A WWI movie this good is even more uncommon. A well-made rendition of the American soldier's short-lived but valiant contributions to the Great War. The production is very impressive considering this is a made-for-TV film. The acting is generally good but I felt that the diverse ethnicities stereotype (especially the inevitable New Yorkers) and the uncaring general stereotype were a bit overdone. What really impressed me was the take on the Germans. They are shown as hard-fighting, competent, and honorable soldiers as opposed to merciless brutes, which tends to be the norm in world war films shown from the Allied perspective. A splendid war piece, overall.
