Fighting On Film: The War Below (2021)

We were lucky enough to see an advanced screening of J.P Watt’s ‘The War Below‘ to bring you our exclusive review of his debut feature!

The film, set during the First World War, tells the story of a small team of civilian sewer engineers who are plucked from their jobs and tasked with helping dig mines underneath German strong points on the Western Front. They are called up by the legendary ‘Hellfire Jack’ played by Tom Goodman Hill.

This Anglo-American production punches above its budget to deliver tense tunnel sequences and brutal depictions of tunnel warfare.

You can watch The War Below on VOD here.

The episode is also available on all other podcast platforms, you can find them here.
