"War Game" seems to have slipped under
the radar for many, but is unforgettable
for those who have discovered it previously, during
it's Christmas 2003 broadcast,
or on the festival circuit, where it has garnered
many deserved awards. Illuminated's
Iain Harvey previously produced When
the Wind Blows, and "War Game" is built
on a similar foundation. We watch as our young
"heroes" progress from the golden
fields of England, to the shock and awe of the
trenches. This is, essentially, a
childrens' film so the visuals are restrained, but
by the end of our tale we are left
in no doubt of the horror as we peer through black
smoke and a wall of orange fire,
before our friends are led "over the top",
to dissolve into charcoal outlines, and in
Revelation's DVD release includes:
"War Game" presented in 16:9 widescreen,
