Yann Demange’s new movie is ‘Training Day’ and ‘Casualties of War’ in one and even much more
It is really hard to make an interesting and thrilling (anti-)war movie, but it has been accomplished when it comes to ’71. All the elements of the movie are really well made/performed. The plot/storyline is packed with suspenseful elements and is 100% ‘pathethic-kitschy-war-hero-scenes’ -free, what made the film as realistic as it gets. 9/10.
