Saul Dibb's World War 1 tale of British soldiers in the trenches is a bleak, sobering experience that puts audiences through a wringer. It's also an emotional powerhouse you will not forget.

This new film doesn't have a particularly new take on the material. It's Journey's End, told again, and told quite well. So whether or not it will astound you has a lot to do with how familiar you are with the source material.

For a movie based on 90-year-old source material, "Journey's End" works remarkably well.
