Watch Dads Army - Alternative Versions.
As a Dad's Army fan (and with a keen interest in the history of the
REAL Home Guard of 1940 - 44) I realised this was never going to
'measure up' to the original TV series. In fact I thought it was going
to be terrible (!) but went along to see it if only to tick the box. It
was better than I expected and it was a pleasant surprise. Sadly I
think that Tom Courtenay 'killed' LCpl Jones's character with a very
wooden performance. However, there was good effort from the other
actors. I thought that Toby Jones (Mainwaring) dominated the screen
when he appeared and captured Mainwaring's flaws (and attributes) very
well. I enjoyed Michael Gambon's Godfrey very much, and Bill Nighy's
Sgt Wilson was an interesting re- interpretation that was nicely done.
There were other good performances too (e.g Mrs Pike etc).
As well as a some chuckles, there were touching moments, and I think it
captured the ethos of the time well (patriotism, paranoia reference the
enemy, 'all pulling together' etc). In all I would call it a pleasant
film to watch, and a homage of some sort to the original series and the
historical Home Guard.
It was a nice touch to set the film in 1944 when the Home Guard was
becoming ever more irrelevant. The original series (many have surmised)
only covered the historical period of 1940 - 42. I've always regretted
that and would have like to have seen the series set over the full
1940-44 period with perhaps a single episode covering their return to
civilian life in December 1944 to round it off. The last year would
have been quite comedic as Mainwaring might have struggled to enthuse
the men as they became less relevant to to the war, and quite touching
I wouldn't listen to too many negative reviews, the film is worth
seeing. I'd rather it had been made than not, even if it only points
people towards the original series and reminds them that the Home Guard
was real and that they lost 1,200 people to enemy action in WW2 (mainly
air raids while on duty etc), and also that although they never faced
an invasion (a real concern in 1940-41) they didn't know that at the
time, but they volunteered anyway.
