  • Summary: If this movie was in color it would be better. If the budget had of allowed for some more special effects ( not cgi necessarily but like at least ONE supernatural/psychedelic experience). Showing 'something' in the hole woulda been fun and then a clearer ending.

  • Summary: "A Field in England" es una buena pelicula de terror dramatico, con un buen argumento para presentar; esta pelicula tambien tuvo buenas actuaciones.Lo malo del film es que en algunas escenas la pelicula se pone densa y aburrida, pero dentro de todo esta buena.

Give this one a miss

  • Summary: Possibly the worse film I have ever seen. Looks like it was made on a budget of £100 Acting is grim and no point to the plot - forget it.

Failed the ten minute test

  • Summary: If after 10 minutes of watching a movie it hasn't entertained me I start skipping ahead to see if it gets better. This one failed the test and didn't get any better. Well-acted but obscure and dull story line. One for the art-house crowd to chatter and enthuse over.

Not what I was expecting

  • Summary: There we were expecting something along the lines of Sightseers but that was well off the mark. It starts off in black & white, Umm... style over substance if I'm not mistaken, and sure enough there was more than a little bizarre and pointless camera work as well as long pauses where the actors just stood still and silent as though posing for a photo to be taken.

Artistic merit? Perhaps.

5 January 2014
  • Summary: I had quite high expectations of this film, having enjoyed other offerings from Ben Wheatley, especially Sightseers. But I found this incoherent, bizarre and, most damningly, deeply boring. Artistic merit? Perhaps. Quirky? Yes, but .. neither particularly interesting nor amusing. Self-indulgent, with very limited appeal, in my opinion. Sorry - I expect it's my loss.

Creepy and weird..

  • Summary: Whilst nowhere near as good as Kill List, A Field In England for me was better than Sightseers and one extreme trip into the bizarre. Despite being as nutty as a squirrel it holds a kind of haunting charm. The scene in which O'Neill takes Whitehead into the tent and then comes out in a bizarre daze was one of the most creepiest moments I have ever seen in film. Definitely one for the aqquired taste but still has an odd feel that draws you into the madness.

Give this potential classic a chance!

  • Summary: A brilliant original film. I have a notion this will be viewed as a classic in years to come. Of course it will be hated by those who go to film for easy and predictable kicks or Hollywood-budgets and cliches. Give this a chance is all I would say. It's disturbing, funny, visually stunning, magical and it makes you think and feel in ways that most movies do not. Well done Ben Wheatley and team (again !
