Movie Info

This anti-war drama, set in WW I, tells the stories of five soldiers from five different countries who are trapped in a no-man's land dugout during a bombardment. Each man's life before the war is chronicled as are the ways in which they became soldiers. The men; an Englishman, a Frenchman, a German, a German Jew, and a black man also offer their opinions about the war.

Critic Reviews for Hell on Earth

All Critics (2)

With this apotheosis the film ends. It is only an apotheosis, no reality.

January 13, 2021 | Full Review…

As a result of these defects and failures, Hell on Earth is not as effective, even as propaganda, as it might be; but unlike most war films it does express a clear and uncompromising attitude toward its subject.
