Movie Info

In 1916, the British Army suffered their bloodiest and most severe defeat ever in the Battle of the Somme; The Trench focuses on the awful prelude to the battle as seen through the eyes of a group of inexperienced soldiers. Billy Macfarlane (Paul Nicholls) is a 17-year-old boy who joined the Army to fight alongside his older brother Eddie (Tam Williams), whom he worships. As the members of their platoon wait for fighting to commence, Eddie climbs up on a hill to see what the German forces are up

Shadows on the Wall

Loaded with soggy, overused war movie cliches.

Audience Reviews for The Trench

Well made but overly soapy WWI drama featuring the usual mix of niave young recruits, hardened veterans and foppish officers who bond/squabble until the inevitable anti-war based conclusion.
