  • Sam Mendes delivers the film of his career by mashing up the survivalist thrills of The Revenant with the helter-skelter mayhem of a shoot'em'up video game, and setting it during the Great War.

  • [I]t's hard to totally invest in the plight of these frazzled grunts when they're both filmed and characterized like video-game avatars, guided from one "level" to the next.

  • 'Once Upon a Time on the Western Front', as you could subtitle Sam Mendes's nerve-fraying rollercoaster of a war movie, is a simple men-on-a-mission dressed up with all the technical bells and whistles at the director's disposal.
