AmaranteI love the music in this film.
NostraReally great movie and some amazing shots. Audiences must have been stunned by so much action during the twenties...

Greg FoxAn all time classic!
DieguitoSo simple, so brilliant! Funny and intelligent movie, the whole movie has real action scenes and a real suspense on how the hero will achieve his mission..
rwjGiven its age, this movie was actually not bad with ok story and some of the humor still worked 7/10
PickmanThree words for one General: clever, gentle and breathtaking.
It's a shame we waste 3D on blue humanoids and not on masterpieces like this one.
Pallium InvisibilitatemSimple yet elegant....
dchauvinGreat battle scene towards the end. The final shot was pretty amusing too.
thetallguyinthecornerI honestly can't see how anyone could find this movie boring. I was laughing throughout the movie and the fact that almost all of the train scenes [/i]were[i] actually happening only added to my appreciation of the action sequences. The plotline was simple but very well executed. I can see why this is considered the number one movie of the silent era.
SiskoidI'm not really up on my Buster Keaton, so though it is often played as slapstick comedy, The General was much more of an action flick than I could have imagined. The connective tissue is a little dull, but the real reason to watch is the two incredible train chases, on real moving trains, as the "General" is first stolen from the South by Union forces during the American Civil War, the taking the return trip with Keaton's heroic engineer at the controls. Amazing stunt work. The final battle has huge production values as well, so don't stop watching. This was loosely based on a true incident, and that takes the sting out of the North being villainous and the War essentially being about saving Keaton's kidnapped girlfriend. The real issues behind the conflict have been completely whitewashed, if you know what I mean, so it really plays as a fantasy with a vague background. A setting for prat falls and awesome stunt work.
