Good, but basically stole the plot


Of Gallipoli (1981) starring Mel Gibson. The movies are extremely similar. While I think 1917 is very good, it shouldn’t win Best Picture and it isn’t some original masterpiece people are making it out to be.

I agree that movie is an underrated gem.

Is it true(ish)?

Look it up and watch the movie.

You can't tell if a movie is true by watching it.

Gallipoli is based on a true story.

Wow, Sam Mendes stole someone else's idea and is now getting the fame and credit for it? Shocker.

reply

It's nothing like Gallipoli.

According to Wikipedia, at one point in that movie someone does deliver a message.

Pretty much the same movie, LOL.

1917 sure has brought out the trolls, but that seems to happen with every popular film.
