There haven't been many great WWI films. Besides All Quiet on the Western Front and Galipoli, there isn't too much else. Well tonight at Best Buy I discovered Lost Battalion, a History Channel original movie from 2001 starring Rick Schroder. I had never heard of it, but since I own about every war film on DVD available, I picked it up unseen. What a tremendous war film. It's basically Saving Private Ryan set in WWI, with all it's trench warfare. It's shot very similar to SPR, gore and all. It's effects are on par with SPR, the budget seems very high. The film pulls no punches and is graphic and incredibily realistic. The story revolves around a battalion led by Schroder who becomes seperated and surrounded by Germans while holding a crucial position with no support. It is filmed 1.33:1 for TV, with effective 2 channel sound. Highly recommended.
