Ratings & Reviews

  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Charge of the Light Brigade

    Un corps expéditionnaire franco-anglais est envoyé en Crimée (1874) pour bloquer la politique expansionniste du tsar Nicolas de Russie qui tente d'imposer sa domination sur les pays balkans. Visuellement, magnifique ! www.cinefiches.com

  2. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film The Charge of the Light Brigade

    The title could also be: "Good Men Are Dying For Nothing". This is about very bad leadership, ignorance, arrogance, inhumanity and stupidity of war. Mostly aristocratic, unexperienced commanding officer dilettantes "play war" and are quite comfortable to sacrifice their subordinates. This "horror" happened in 1854, but it can easily occur nowadays at any place, any time.

  3. Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Charge of the Light Brigade

    Not just a blistering satire on the folly of war but the hypocrisies of class, station and the underpinning institutions. It has a most unusual texture for the period and has suffered more than most under the editor's thumb. Seek out the longest version possible and marvel at the scaborous delights of the damning script and production.

  4. L. Nolan's rating of the film The Charge of the Light Brigade

    A war film that actually shows why wars occur.
