Below you will find all of the reviews from critics & fans alike for Journey’s End & Sam’s performance as Stanhope as & when they arrive following the film’s screenings at TIFF & LFF prior to its official UK release in February 2018!

***

“There isn’t a weak link in a pitch perfect ensemble cast that stretches from Paul Bettany’s kindly, honourable father figure Osborne, to Toby Jones philosophical cook Mason and Sam Claflin’s embittered leader. All underplay beautifully, conveying the quiet reality of a desperate situation. It is a governing sense of restraint that lends the film such an emotional kick, and breathes fresh life into an old classic.”  – Screen Daily

 

“Director Saul Dibb is still able to make the dialogue-heavy drama feel cinematic with the help of Ben Wheatley’s cinematographer, Laurie Rose, who captures everything in a kind of drab beauty. In Journey’s End, filmmakers have created another fitting tribute to a generation of veterans whose fight really didn’t end that long ago. Contrary to what Mel Gibson may believe, this is actually possible to do without the use of excessive violence.” – Dork Shelf

 

“Much of the credit goes to the astute writing and punchy yet understated staging. But primarily, the film keeps audiences engrossed in the personalities involved, their fatigue, disillusionment and residual humanity, as well as the tenderness they extend towards one another where needed. The entire cast is fine, with Claflin (“The Hunger Games,” “My Cousin Rachel”) excellent in the role Olivier originated.” – Variety 

 

“This is most vividly felt in the character of Osborne, a thoughtful and altogether admirable fellow wonderfully played in an uncharacteristically low-key performance by Bettany. Butterfield has little choice but to play it earnest as the well-off young man too naive to know what he’s in for, while Claflin, in the role originated by a 21-year-old Laurence Olivier onstage, is quite on the nose portraying an intelligent man steadily cracking under pressure, bottle in hand. Toby Jones provides modest humorous relief as the unit’s cook”  Hollywood Reporter
