Having watched it I wonder why I bothered. How did it win all those Oscars? Foul mouthed soldiers whose communication left me out. A lot of the time I could not understand what was going on in the narrative nor in the action. It was bitty in plot. I remember being critical of Saving Private Ryan but that was great compared with this. It communicated the horror of war and the frightening tension of bomb disposal. I have nothing but admiration for these bravest of soldiers. But I have no admiration for the makers of this film.
