Review of 'the trench'

Extracts from this document...


Review of 'The Trench' I think that the Film 'The Trench' portrayed the life of the soldiers in the trenches very well. It must have been awful living in the ground for so long. The conditions in the trenches were very bad in the film you could see the men having to sleep against the edge of the trench on the hard sand bags.

They could have been seen as wimps if they didn't want to join up and they wanted to make their families proud of them. Overall I think it must have been terrible for the soldiers leaving their loved ones for such a cold and hard time in the trenches before having to go over the top into the line of enemy fire for their country. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
