All’s Quiet On The Western Front

This movie does an excellent job at examining the horror of wars. From people dying left and right to 16 year olds being drafted to fight. It also attempts to showcase the effect on those who are fighting which is usually PTSD. I however feel that this falls short showing just how bad PTSD can get for the individual experiencing it. Overall I enjoyed the movie and feel it did a good job exposing the track from enlisting to actually fighting and the mind set of not actually wanting to kill but needing to survive. It was also refreshing to get a German rather than an American perspective of the war situation. Since most war movies that are produced in America are more often than not from the American solider’s perspective.
