Not What We Originally Anticipated.....But Still Worth a Viewing
on February 4, 2016
I originally purchased this Movie for my father, who is very interested in "all things Military" and/or related to WWII. He thought, at the time he mentioned the movie to me, that it would be more of a "Documentary" in nature as opposed to the "Hollywood-ized" story portrayed in Passchendaele.
While the end result depicted on this DVD was certainly well done, with authentic battle scenes and depiction of military life, etc., it did not meet our original expectations (that is more our failing than the movie's).
If you have a passing interest in the story of Passchendaele and the events surrounding Canada's involvement in the battle, then I believe you'd enjoy this movie. However, if you're looking for something along the lines of a Documentary detailing the Passchendaele battle, then I would suggest looking specifically for something that fits that description.
