Critic Reviews for Queen and Country
Don't let the British pedigree and nostalgic trimmings fool you: this is no Masterpiece Theatre exercise but a broad, high-spirited, riotously funny service comedy, on par with M*A*S*H and Stripes.
The movie is a sweet-natured, easy-going bit of storytelling, and while Bill may be the central character, Queen and Country is really a movie about England. And it's a love letter to a particular time and place
The director gets all the period detail exactly right and there are plenty of historical and cultural references that evoke a sense of nostalgia.
Queen and Country finds exhilarating comedy in places usually reserved for drama, violence, loss.
In short, [you may realize] how expert presentation can draw you into a world, immerse you in the lives of others, and make you sorry to leave when it's over.
A little too silly to be taken seriously, yet also too heavy to get all the laughs it very clearly craves, "Queen and Country" at least shows where Boorman's schizoid, if less than wholly satisfying, sense of storytelling comes from.
Audience Reviews for Queen and Country
I really enjoyed this film. Well acted, with a great cast and a touching story about friendship through troubled times. This is apparently a sequel to a film called Hope and Glory so I will have to watch that now to see how it all began.
