WWI: NOTHING MUCH HAPPENS,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Parade's End [DVD] (DVD)
Great production value, good actors, yet this story never gets off the ground. Nothing happens, in technicolor. Dull lives, conflicts that never seem to erupt or get resolution. Even WW1 is treated, at times, as if we were in a Black Adder spoof with people being paraded back and forth between barracks and train stations befor being pulled back at the last moment. Some good characters, great actors...but how many times can Benedict Cumberbatch get teary while his mouth droops like a cartoon character, before you lose interest? Too bad.
