The rat-infested trenches of Northern France are no place for a boy in the spring of 1918. But that's where Second Lieutenant Raleigh naively requests to be sent.

If you're claustrophobic, best to leave Journey's End off your viewing list, but all others will find treasure in these trenches.

I couldn't believe how much time was spent debating eating military rations.
February 22, 2019
A worthy war movie that's too held back by its stage origins.
January 28, 2019
A sober, grim and powerful war story.
January 24, 2019
Exceeds expectations and Bettany is sublime.
November 25, 2018
The period recreation is vivid, especially when the whistle blows and the men climb over the top and into a battlefield strewn with barbed wire, bomb craters and mud-soaked corpses. It's a gruelling drama, yet a worthwhile one.

The horrors of war are on display in this tense and affecting film in which we are taken in the trenches and into the lives of the men who wait for the inevitable. Director Saul Dibb has made a sensitive film...

If it's not pacifist, it's certainly a profoundly anti-war statement about men under ultimate stress. One hundred years on, it's never too soon, never too late for that idea.

It remains pretty damn powerful even if some of its thunder has been slightly stolen by the mighty army of war movies that have come before.
November 6, 2018
A terrific companion piece (and Armistice Day weekend double bill) to Peter Jackson's similarly set documentary They Shall Not Grow Old.
November 2, 2018
Journey's End is a powerful and moving tribute to the men who fought in the trenches.
September 30, 2018
The sheer horror of the first World War is captured in sobering detail in this quietly moving adaptation of a powerfully emotive play of the same name.
August 28, 2018
Harrowing and heartbreaking.
August 27, 2018
Journey's End is dependent upon the change that comes to the psyche when one's life is literally ticking away.
August 21, 2018
It's a visual assault of the most important senses - heart and mind. A must see.
August 14, 2018
"Journey's End", is a powerful real-life story about the toll that war can take on a soldier, even when they're not directly on the battlefield.
April 19, 2018
The trenches are insane, but what awaits is worse.
April 18, 2018
These performances dovetail nicely with Dibb's intention to keep us in the soldiers' headspace.
April 16, 2018
Gripping, myopic and brilliantly-acted, if a tad predictable as such WWI films inevitably are.
