    Really GOOD!

    Wow, This film is my favorite WWI movie, and one of my favorite war movies. The acting is great, the attention to detail with the weapons and uniforms is great. The Germans actually speak german, as opposed to some war movies, and the drama of the characters and the situation is really well shown. It is a great view of the Germans also, as we see their commanders and their feeling and thoughts of toward and of the Americans. The dialogue is great and the last scene when Whittlsey and the men ambush and charge the Germans is just amazing. One of my favorite war scenes ever. It really gets the adrenaline going!! 5 stars.

    Watch to experience how war is Hell.

    If you are looking for a good movie that will depict the fighting during the WW1 era then this is the movie for you to pick up. Often shown on the A&E channel this movie really moved me in everyway. I would really sincerely recommend watching this movie just to get a sense of what these men had to go through to come out victorious.

    Hidden Heroism

    This movie is unlike many modern movies that glamorize close infantry combat. The dirty business of close combat is brought to your home without the melodrama that tends to make a movie artificial. Moral courage and tenacity are exhibited by the battalion officers and men in the face of a determined enemy and apathetic higher command. This movie will leave you with mixed emotions: sorrowfull for the needless lost lives, but prideful for the honor of the survivors.

    Gritty movie about a gritty war

    Not too many movies have been made about World War I, but this one rates right up there with ''The Blue Max'', particularly as it tells the true story of a US Army battalion that played a key role in breaking the backs of the Germans on the war's western front. Rick Schroder is very believable as the young major who leads his men in an assault on a German position, despite his fears that the plan is terribly flawed. Events prove Maj. Whittlesey tragically correct; the Americans achieve their objective at great cost, but are surrounded by the enemy when other allied units fall back. The movie does a fine job in portraying the Americans' heroism as they hold their position against overwhelming odds. The Germans are also portrayed realistically and with a degree of sympathy, especially in the scene of a dying German soldier pleading to keep his last loaf of bread from the foraging, hungry Americans. With all the recent talk of the World War II generation, it would serve us all well to remember that the generation before that one also made great sacrifices in defense of liberty. ''The Lost Battalion'' portrays a key battle in their struggle in epic fashion. A word of warning, though: this is not a movie for the squeamish.
