The movie is an honest attempt to portray the story in the book. However it misses the mark and is highly edited to show evidently what director Delbert Mann and writer Paul Monash [Salem's Lot (1979) (TV)] thought you would want to see and not what Erich Maria Remarque wrote about. Do you remember the scene that Remarque wrote about befriending a cat while enjoying the spoils of protecting the abandoned town? How about the night they crossed the river to meet some girls at their house? The time he faked sick to get off the train and stay with his buddy? No? I wonder why?
You are right movies cant be books. But the Lewis Milestones 1930 classic comes a lot closer. It is sort of distraction to see Johnboy playing Paul Baumer. Younger viewers at least wont have that distraction. If this is the only exposure to the story you have then it is masterful. However it is only reflection of the book or other movie versions. If you only taste ersatz coffee you may still drink coffee but you will never know what it is like to drink real coffee that does not say "cinnamon crumb cake" on the label.

As the 70's came to a close, nobody exactly knew what was beyond the horizon of the 80's...much to say it's taste in TV movies. "All Quiet on the Western Front", a 1979 made-for-tv movie, said it all. You have your all-star cast of "The Waltons" Richard Thomas, academy award winner Ernest Borgnine, cult fave Donald Pleasence and British actor Ian Holm. Unlike it's 1930 counterpart, which places itself in the hall of fame of war epics, this update gives more and askes for little.
Much like the book and the original movie, the story takes place in 1914 central Germany at the eve of World War I. Many schoolboys (and yes, just like the original film, they oddly speak English with American and British accents, yet its...Germany?) are destinted to join up with the Kaiser's army and fight for the "Fatherland". Paul Baummer (Thomas) is an eager young boy who doesn't exactly look like the fighting type (truth be said, Thomas is giving into too much of his John-Boy image from "Waltons", but nevermind that), in fact he gets distracted easily. But he and his school buddies join the resistance. After going through harsh training with anal Himmelstoss (Holm), they are sent to the frontlines of France. There, they meet Katczinsky (Bognine) AKA "Kat", a seamlessly old warhorse that takes the boys in and teaches them how to fight. And unless you haven't read the book or just know the story like everybody knows the Cinderella story, one-by-one the boys die horrible deaths in the trenches and it's to a point where even some lose their minds. Paul is sent back home because of injuries but returns because he feels like the trenches are his home.

For some reason a whole host of classic films were remade for television in the 70s. Most, like the remakes of "From Here to Eternity," "Miracle on 34th Street," and "It's Wonderful Life," were dreadful, pale imitations of the originals. This remake of "All Quiet on the Western Front" is an exception. It is really well-done and the production values are very good for a television movie probably because it was made for a theatrical release. (It was released in theaters in Europe; but not in the US.)
Along with the great production values are the terrific performances. Richard Thomas was a household name at the time due to his role as John Boy on the TV show "The Waltons." His performance in "All Quiet in the Western Front" is very good. He certainly had the talent to move on to bigger and better things, but he was never able to fully shake that image of John Boy. Ian Holm is great as the spiteful, martinet drill instructor. And Patricia Neal does a fine turn as Paul's ailing mother. Borgnine is ok; but he is a little too old and fat to be believable as an infantryman.
The original is an undeniable classic. Still the greatest anti-war movie ever made. Yet the remake is not a pale imitation and some viewers might prefer it to the original simply because of its more modern acting techniques and color cinematography.

This movie is not done with the special effects of Black Hawk Down or Saving Private Ryan. But it is definitely ranked among them as being a great commentary on World War 1.
World War 1 is the forgotten war, one that few people can even name the causes of. This movie not only looks at the war, it takes it from the point of view of the Germans. However, you will forget that they were our enemies in this stunning portrayal of 20 young men enlisted in the German army. From the first scene with the teacher telling the men to defend the Fatherland, to the final moments of the war, when the desperate Germans are calling 10 year olds to the fields, it will have you hooked. A good movie for kids, as it really brings out the human aspect of world war 1. Along with the 1930's version, a definite must-see. One of the greatest war stories of all time.
