Bought two movies at Target today, “They Shall Not Grow Old” and “The Great War”. The Great War has to be one of the worst war movies I’ve ever seen. It is basically a rip off of saving private Ryan. It’s about a captain in WWI leading some guys to rescue a regiment of negro soldiers behind enemy lines. The premise isn’t bad but the acting and the screenplay is awful. It actually copies scenes from SPR, just changes little things and the time period. The captain has flashbacks and is mentally unbalanced. In some scenes it even copies SPR almost word for word. I can not say it enough, Stay Away! ( unless you need a laugh). Just my 2 cents

Perhaps "The Not So Great War". It's surprising they have not been sued. Then again, if the movie bombed at the box office perhaps the makers of SPR don't want to be associated with it.


My wife, the high school teacher would call this plagiarism... an automatic "F".
