Movie Review: All Quiet on the Western Front (1930) *****

Finally had a chance to watch this movie and I was surprised by the level of realism in which it portrayed war, something I didn’t expect from a movie made back in 1930. Watching it today, in parts, it will be dated in terms of acting and maybe a little too preachy. But it still deserves the highest grade for the way it portrays the horrors of war while still telling a story. I now realize where some notable later war films such as Saving Private Ryan and Seven Days in May, took their inspiration from.
