Walter M (it) wrote: It is 1916. Like many other young Englishmen, Stephen Wraysford(Eddie Redmayne) is serving his country in the trenches of France. Unlike many others, he is an officer. That entitles him to his own space, along with threatening a soldier with court martial for dereliction of duty and complaining to another officer about his soldiers being used to guard tunnel diggers, especially after one drowns.It is 1910. 20-year old Stephen has traveled to France to inspect the factory of Rene Azaire(Laurent Lafitte). One day, Stephen spies Rene's younger wife Isabelle(Clemence Poesy) bringing food to striking workers.Even though it has nothing really new to say about its none too subtly expressed themes of the randomness of war, there are still things to appreciate about "Birdsong." First, there is Eddie Redmayne which is very important. Then, there is the sensual love affair which works to help illustrate the movie's contrast between peace and war in early 20th century France.

It is hard to get past the hard core gangster that turned US Border Patrol. Evidently they don't DO background checks anymore and gangstas from the hood can speak flawless English when the occasion demands it. The movie would have been better without the stupid gangbanger angle and if they had focused on a tight border patrol-smuggler-minute men triangle.

Chris A (it) wrote: John Ford + Shirley Temple + Victor McLaglen = Incredible Movie. This is sensational family entertainment. It has all of the innocent fun of a Shirley Temple picture, combined with the masterful direction of John Ford. The chemistry between Victor McLaglen and Shirley Temple is wonderful. Every scene they have together is just perfect.

Brett H (ag) wrote: A surprisingly fun and creative sci-fi flick that doesn't take itself too seriously and paved the way for Roland Emmerich's career of overblown and ridiculous blockbusters. The story is fairly original and as the mystery unfolds I found myself getting more and more invested in the characters' predicament. The two leads are 80s legends James Spader and Kurt Russell who are passable, though Spader always sounds a little flat and uninterested to me; he did do the film for money after all. The special effects hold up amazingly well, especially in the portal scenes involving the title's, Stargate! It's a bit hokey and I couldn't see myself watching it again, but it spawned a very successful TV series and set Roland Emmerich on his career-path to destroy Earth in every consecutive film; so it has some merit!

Eric H (de) wrote: Well, I haven't read the book, which seems to be better, but I liked the movie. I agree that it was pretty inconsistent, and the end could have been done better, but overall, I liked it a lot.I even liked Nicole Kidman in this movie, which says a great deal because normally I can't stand her. What can I say? Romantic comedies appeal to me. Not the best ever made, but enjoyable.
