I have attempted to watch this movie twice on TV, never getting past the first half hour before completely losing interest as I find it violently boring. After seeing pictures from the movie and reading about it, thinking “how could a movie with this stuff in it possibly be boring?!”, I was determined to watch it in its entirety.
Now I’ve watched it, and I still found it the most boring movie ever. Not only boring, but I disliked pretty much every character, especially Barry himself. I couldn’t concentrate on it all and had to do other stuff while watching it to get through it at all. The first part of it is all country people and military men, which doesn’t interest me at all, but later in the movie there are some very nice costumes. I have to say they’re not interesting or plentiful enough to watch a movie this boring though.
On the other hand I know many people love this movie and consider it a masterpiece , so don’t take my word for it being horrible. See some more film stills after the cut.
