5.0 out of 5 stars humanity at best and worst 1 Mar 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
War brings out the best and worst in human relationships and this film brings out both in startling clarity. The actors are all superb as they portray people whose basic humanity is strained in the most terrible of conditions. Some rise above the horror of the prison camp, some fall and courage is shown not in how strong you can be but in how you respond when strength is not an option. This film is deeply moving in its own right but to know that it is a true story and that the people actually existed ensures that its power does not cross the line into emotional manipulation. Watch this film and weep!

5.0 out of 5 stars Though provoking. 8 Nov 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I brought this dvd with some misgivings if it was, as suggested, heavily slanted on christianity. I found nothing of the sort. I watched a film depicting the ability of the individual to find a spirituality in the deepest, darkest face of adversity. It's release should not have been delayed, in fact the lack of publicity for this film is nothing short of disgraceful, echoing a similar lack of recognition of the lives and deaths of the people involved. 'To End All Wars' serves as a timely reminder of man's ability to harm and heal.

Robert Carlyle (Trainstopping, The Beach), Kiefer Sutherland (24, The Lost Boys, Phone Booth), Cieran McManamin and Mark Strong shine through in Oscar worthy performances in this powerful true story of (as the tagline says) the will to survive and the courage to forgive.
Director David L. Cunningham's film, based on World War II veteran Ernest Gordon's book, is a thing of beauty. Never mind all those so-called 'American Classics' like American Beauty and The Cider House Rules. Don't get me wrong, those are excellent movies, but I just see To End All Wars as better filmmaking triumph. The film shows the true horrors that British and American soldier faced in a Japanese prison camp during WWII.
With McManamin and Strong being little-known actors, I thought that Carlyle and Sutherland would over-shadow them. But that is not the case as they act as supporting material to McManamin's breathtaking leading performance and Strong is equally as 'strong'.
But To End All Wars doesn't just have wonderful performances. Every last detail is done to perfection, especially Cunningham's direction. But, there is one thing that does puzzle me and that is if Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black and The Rock are both in IMBd's Top 250, then why isn't this?

5.0 out of 5 stars to end all wars 23 Aug 2005
Format:DVD
a brilliant depiction of life in a p.o.w camp in burma.amazing acting by all the cast, especially robert carlisle.for people, like me who have a passion for military history it is a must see film. the film focuses on the argule regiment, based on reel soldiers and there experience under capture and the horrific triles thay had to endure under the japanese.the film is very upseting at times, as it shows some cruel seens. very well filmed and quite accurate historicly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and challenging 1 Mar 2005
By quinny
Format:DVD
An excellent movie that depicts man's capacity for inhumanity and the Christian morals practiced by the POW's that both bewildered and shamed their Japanese captors. In spite of the film's ethical slant, it ranks alongside the best war films.

5.0 out of 5 stars What can I say? 7 May 2004
By Akira
Format:DVD
Watched this for the first time today. It's assured not to be the last time.
While watching, I was compelled; drawn in to the story - moreso than many films. The emotional impact it weaves, and thus has on the viewer is...something very special indeed. The brutality tears away at one's mind; keeping a constant reminder of how inhuman and cruel our race can be. But more than just the pain and suffering, there is the conflict of revenge and mercy. These physical & emotional battles bring the viewer closer to the feel of the actions, with more success than some war films.
The acting on everyone's part, is breathtaking - throughout. The whole -feel- of the film is extraordinary. A perfect cast, with a sad and harsh true story. There were moments where I had to cry. I saw these moments, and not only saw it from the POWs' POV, but, also, I reflected on -myself- and who I am. I compared the flaws and strengths and the characters with myself; as me, and as a human being. This is truly one of the better films in a war genre.
It is a real big shame that this film has not received the attention and recognition and acclaim it well deserves. I would very easily rank it up with the best war films made. The story of a small portion of our expansive history, yet containing just as meaningful, just as powerful, just as important a group of lives and series of events as any war as a whole.
A portion of our history; dwarfed in size, like it is said in the film, that of the single human being, who weighs but only a feather.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent, very moving 7 Feb 2011
By nathan
Format:DVD
thought provoking, moving, emotional in parts and at times chilling. a fantasticly acted war drama which teaches the real meaning of forgiveness from both a soldiers perspective and a christians perspective. its even more harrowing to know its a true story. a must see for anyone wanting to be genuinely left speachless.
