Map of 1917

I watched the movie last night, and am a little confused about the map logistics. If they were just going to their allies, why did they have to cross into no man's land? Couldn't they have just gone around the back of their own trenches? Were the Devons set up at that trench for a while? If so, how were they totally set up in very recently occupied german territory?

And this might not have to do with map logistics, but why were there 3 random german soliders in an abandoned village in british controlled territory?

If anyone can draw me a map of the region, that'd be awesome.

Like most other movies, you just have to go with it. Don't worry about the 100% reality of it, just accept it as the story you're being told.

what a terrible advice, you're one of the many reasons why there are shitty movies. I suppose reality of belief isn't important, might as well watch a bloody movie with cows flying through space

I'm more interested in how those two guys can not get blown up and die from being in the same room as a booby trap bomb in the german bunker. They walked out without even hearing loss or bleeding from the ears.

The bomb was most likely planted inside the walls of the trench in order to collapse the whole system. If it was in the open it would not have done as much damage to the structure, which was the Germans plan to bury them.

The map, the distances, the “close calls” like that are exactly why I was left uninspired by this movie. I have a strong love for Sam Mendes but this wasn’t his best movie. Honestly, the single-camera gimmick is what pulls it back.

I'm not trying to hate on it, just had a question. I really enjoyed it.

I tried mapping out a plausible route and german and british lines, but I couldn't figure it out.

I enjoy a lot of Will Ferrell's work. I love Anchorman, I really enjoyed Talladega Nights, but some of his other work can be pretty hit or miss. So I always put him in the category of "Funny with hints of greatness but not there".

Mark Wahlberg, on the other hand... Not exactly a brilliant track record in my opinion.

So how the hell did the two manage to make the masterpiece that is "The Other Guys"?!

The movie is wall to wall packed with hilarious material. Ferrell and Wahlberg have this incredible chemistry as the characters just riff from one another. Alan (Ferrell) is this quircky and uptight accountant who is aloof to the fact he's somehow extremely attractive to women while Terry (Wahlberg) is a guy with deep emotional troubles and infantile tendencies obcessed with being a good detective.

And holy crap the number of iconic scenes: Alan not realizing he was a pimp at college, Alan's ex girfriend and her husband attacking him, Terry's insane antics to get his girlfriend back, the two being repeatedly unintentionally bribed by the evil businesman with broadway tickets, SAM JACKSON AND THE ROCK just jumping of a rooftop for no reason in the first 10 minutes while "Here Goes My Hero" plays triumphantly. The quiet fight at the funeral. MICHAEL KEATON having the time of his life playing Captain Gene, a police captain who is way more invested in his job at Bed Bath and Beyond and keeps quoting TLC lyrics unintentionally (or maybe not). And many others I'm forgetting.

This movie is utterly insane but it's like every single joke they threw at the wall just stuck.
