Just  :notworthy:

It sucks you in within the first minutes, builds the tension, you sort of anticipate some things coming and are completely wrong and other stuff takes you by surprise.  Some parts would fit well within the single player Call of Duty, Battlefield and similar games, but aren't in any way gung-ho or cheesy, indeed for a war film comparatively little is out and out action.   And the way it has been filmed to create a single camera effect is really clever.

The silence of the full cinema audience at the end credits says it all.

I watched it today and thought it was very well shot. I wasn't as good as saving private ryan, but that maybe just personal preference. It is a very good watch.
