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.

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.

This is the story of Paul, a German school who is convinced by his teacher to join the army. You follow Paul through basic training and up to the front lines of battle. I liked this movie a lot because it shows a graphic description of the war from the German side. One of the best scenes of the movie is when Paul is in the hole with a Frenchmen, and he takes care of him after mortally wounding the soldier. This makes him try to understand why the war is being fought, and why he has killed this man, who has a wife and childern, and friends just like Paul. This is hard for Paul to grasp. Paul survived the whole war until the end. The armistice hadn't come into effect yet and Paul is hit by a sniper while he is trying to reach for a butterfly. This last scene was very unexpected, and that is why it made this movie so good.

Fantastic movie! I use this in my history class and although it's an older movie, students are interested from beginning to end. An interesting look at the less glamorous side of war and the impact it has on the people involved.

Either this movie, or the original (black and white) version are excellent additions to the family bookshelves.
If you are viewing this with kids, they may prefer this slightly (to them!) more modern version. The acting is quite good in this made-for-TV adaptation of a classic WWI movie that was banned by Hitler (a good indication that it should be watched!) because it was anti-war, and his need was to encourage, not discourage, young men to fight.
From the viewpoint of young German soldiers who at first are eager to fight, until they face the realties of war, it is a classic WWI anti-war movie.
Although there is war-related violence, it may be OK for some kids, but parents should view it first.
Four stars because even though it is in color, it isn't quite as good as the original black and white.

This is a fine WWI film. The acting is outstanding. Richard Thomas is excellent as Paul Baum. Ian Holm is also very good as the drill instructor. Ernest Borgnine rounds out the cast of fine acting. Made for television, this film was not eligible for the Oscars but if it were it should have at least garnered a best actor or best director. (War films often do not win best picture) As the other reviews indicate, it does reflect the war from the German perspective. The battle scenes are very well done (even for 1979). It compares with the Razor's Edge. Both films are deep and demonstrate a youthful look at the world turning into the cold cruel reality of war and life itself. Amazon.com is amazing. I have been looking for this film for years. It is a grand film and one of the favorites from my youth.

This is a very good and tough movie. It is a big improvement from the 1930 version.

I saw this movie in school, and it made the ever-so-boring global class interesting for a few days. I think it woke some of my classmates up (and me!) about the physical as well as emotional hardships of war. The story is layed out very well, including many facts (that I'll need on a future test!!) and an interesting storyline. I have never had any type of interest in war, but this movie certainly was a wake up call. It was very realistic, and makes people realize that things like war shouldn't be happening.
