With the "First world" is two news. First the good: coming soon in theaters will be a powerful picture of the great War — "1917", taken according to the trailer attention to detail and the desire to penetrate deeper in that era. The bad news is that until the screens (thank God that monitor) came the "First world" — inept film, shot almost on the knee, so clumsy and biased in that other anti-racist films such as "the Green book" or"Selma" seem forced — you haven't seen such inept agitation on the topic, "racism — is bad." With a stunning message "let's put aside differences and work together," "First World" leaves a very sad impression — even this era of political correctness and the winning of liberalism in American cinema these things the show looks outdated and dull.

The scenario is clearly fictional blends facts with real events. So, the main character — Lieutenant William and his team have to release a platoon of African American soldiers, nicknamed the "company Buffalo NY". Blacks (excuse me, atrophy) got into a trap for the front line on the German side. The operation of the level recorded for a pittance "private Ryan" leads to that raised the morale of soldiers, but U.S. General Ron Perlman and Colonel Billy Zane, located on different pages of the script, trying to figure out what they, in fact, to do with new soldiers. At this way there is a lot of debate, shootings, fist fights and other "charms" of the war. Cheapness is visible to the naked eye: the weapons — false, short action like shooting entertainment, reenactors, and durability of the actors keep a straight face in such strange dialogs you can be surprised.

Generally speaking, each of the flaws (from lighting that makes you cry when the day scenes to the syrupy blood) makes you hate every minute "First World". It would be possible to blame the Directors in a low budget that appears almost in every episode, but the overall lack of sophistication with the film indicates something more disturbing: the lack of taste in principle. Here there anything is acceptable as in the pages of the script, and other side of the camera. How else can you explain the appearance of a female heroine that comes out of nowhere, gave a lecture on her choice to participate in the war, lazily alluding to feminism, immediately disappearing unknown?
