In the depths of the First World War, two young British soldiers (George MacKay and Dean-Charles Chapman) are faced with a near-impossible task. They’ve been ordered to carry a message, by hand, to the front line and beyond – across no man’s land, to a large British force that will, unless word gets through, be led into a trap and wiped out.

Sam Mendes’s film is a highly convincing welter of dirt, exhaustion, and decay, including a series of unrelenting challenges for our heroes. The movie is assisted by a steady supply of dependable British actors, including Colin Firth and Benedict Cumberbatch, and the cinematographer is Roger Deakins, who sustains the illusion that the entire tale unfolds in a single, sinuous take.
