1914 tells the story of the 21st Battalion as they prepare for the battle of Courcellette in World War I. Taking place in real time, the film follows Sgt. Reid as he must get his men ready for the impending battle. Not only must he prepare his battalion Sgt. Reid must also deal with the day to day difficulties of Life in the trenches, including terrible injuries to his men, exhaustive supply issues, and an underage recruit who has joined the army in search of adventure. Entirely representative of the generation of young men pitched into the slaughter of World War I. Here they will encounter the bloody carnage of the Western Front.

The war to end all wars, this is the story of the human cost of war on a scale the World had never seen before; this is an intimate and powerful depiction of World War I.

I really looked forward to this film. We watched it last night and waited for something to happen-it didn't! The whole scene is filmed in a dugout and a few Canadian Soldiers that could be spared from the out of work actors list. This must have been the lowest of budgets, they didn't have spend on special effects-there was none ,they didn't have to spend on scenery background - there was none.in fact- did they have a real script or were they making it up as they went along? I cannot imagine anyone making this film and holding their head up high unless it was to be shot by the pretend Germans somewhere over the other side of the dugout that we were not privy to see. The picture on the front of the DVD shows a line of men walking with a dramatic background that you and I will not witness in this film, in fact that's likely to be the total cast in this film on the front of it!

Do not be deceived by the title of this film and the boast that it is an epic war film. Fact is this is a title known as 21 BROTHERS in the U.S. and its biggest claim to fame is that it was shot in one continuous take. As a drama it is okay but suffers from a non-existent budget and many military inaccuracies. The biggest travesty is that yet another distributor is trying to sell a 3 year old film under another title to deceive the buying public. This is the 21st century. Wise up. Caveat emptor.

Not the worse movie in the world, but as other reviewers have commented on here, the major issue here is the fact that this dvd is an absolute con!

The movie was officially called '21 Brothers' but has been released (I think for the first time) as '1914' - no doubt to tie in with this being the 100th anniversary of World War 1. It features a picture on the cover that doesn't appear in the movie, features quotes like 'brilliant movie' but with no reference as to whom has said it, and some of the pictures on the back aren't from the movie at all.

The film is 'very' low budget. It's set in some trenches (where the actors are supposedly up to their knees in mud - they're not - it's bone dry!) and are about to face 'zero hour' - go over the top and take on the enemy. We start 90 minutes before the order is given, and fair play, this is the first time i've seen a movie made in one continual shot. The 'older' actors in the cast do quite well with predictable lines and they've obviously had a lot to learn, but the younger actors are completely shocking with no talent at all, quite often looking at the camera or fluffing the odd line. The way the film has been made you can imagine that one really wrong line would mean the film would have to start again.

It does look very much like it's filmed in someone's garden rather than some war zone, and the 'explosive' effects at the end are just extraordinarily bad as they disappear in a 'Gallipoli'-esque finale.

The 2 stars is very generous and is more for the fact that it dares to be a bit different and I can respect the older actors here for their efforts, however, the fact that it is an absolute joke of a release leaves a very sour taste in the mouth and the distributors should be ashamed.

absolute load of inaccurate boring rubbish, soldiers complaining about being up to their necks in mud......in a bone dry, dusty & sunny ditch......not even a trench! shell's going off everywhere & they just stand around talking (sorry... swearing, because that's the only dialogue...with their heads well above the parapit ) wooden acting (if you can call it acting!) & an insult to all who served & died in ww1. I would not even try selling this at a boot fair......destined for the bin!!

I was utterly disappointed with this film. First the packaging deceives us by stating that it is "A Masterpiece of Film Making' and
"An Epic War Film..." This is absolutely nonsense and untrue! Also there is no indication of the timing of the length of the film. It is actually less than an hour. Badly conceived, poorly directed and produced badly. Do not be seduced and mislead by the cover of the DVD, it comes across more like an amateur production.

Before buying, please read! I can not believe I paid for this film. After watching it I decided to check on IMDB to find out the films (obviously very low budget. Guess what, this film isnt listen on IMDB, nor any of the actors from what I could find, nor director.
I then looked up Three Wolves Ltd, the studio (according to Amazon description) who made this awful film, and at the time of writing, the company is dormant and doesnt seem to have ever traded.
This film has 2 "reviews" on the front, one saying breathtaking, and one saying its a masterpiece. These, I suspect, are made up, or opinions of part of the crew. There are no references to who said these glowing "reviews".
"Breathtaking"? This film is ENTIRLY filmed in a short trench. The story is basically the guys walking around telling stories, and playing cards. None of it has any meaning. Its kind of like the british The Office, but not funny or entertaining. All of a sudden they go over the top and the camera man pans the camera round an empty trench the the credits roll.
"Masterpiece"? In what world? The acting is VERY poor. The whole film is filmed without any cuts, so, while the "actors" do a good job of remembering lines, the acting is therefore wooden like they are trying desperately not to screw up. There are no special effects, its just some guys chatting with a shaky camera. How is it a masterpiece?
Seems like someones tried to churn out a low budget film and make it look epic to get a quick quid or two while riding on the back of 100 years on.
These are ofcourse opinions, but I would advise not to waste your time.
