Rating: 5/5 -- They Shall Not Grow Old proves surprisingly involving, given that 50 percent of the footage involves closeups of British tommies, who've clearly never heard the word "dentistry," chomping on cigarettes. Full Review

"They Shall Not Grow Old" is a nearly great talking-head documentary in which the talking heads are never seen, only heard. Full Review

Rating: A -- They Shall Not Grow Old is, at once, a technical marvel of historical importance, a deeply moving personal story of real-world heroes, and a timeless reminder that the atrocities of war must necessarily be avoided at all costs. Full Review
