    Almost a live-action cartoon or videogame, with insane circus stunts.

    I didn't find this funny at all, it's a fun adventure story. Overall I'm glad I watched it and will checkout more Buster Keaton films. An overrated but worthwhile film that should be seen at least once.

    Super Film! Der Film ist 90 Jahre alt, aber so gut gealtert, dass er immer noch unglaublich viel Spaß macht. Der Slapstick ist präzise getimed, sodass ich über all die dummen kleinen Witze laut lachen musste und die Action mit zwei Eisenbahnverfolgungsjagden ist explosiv.

    Ich hatte sehr viel Spaß an dem Film, vor allem daran, dass es ihm gelingt sehr viel Dynamik in die damals noch starre Kamera zu bringen, einfach indem im Bild viel mit Bewegung gearbeitet wird. Außerdem…

    The General's straightforward yet engaging plot is perfectly realized by timelessly enjoyable performance of the one and only Buster Keaton; silent comedy at its finest.

    Directed by Clyde Bruckman and star Buster Keaton this film also features Marion Mack. During the US civil war a railway engineer from the South who was rejected by the army seeks to foil the plans of Northern spies.

    Compared to some of the Chaplin films I have watched lately this film has more of a clear plot but the humour is less frequent. The plot is a fairly average action adventure piece as the hero tries to regain the…

    Critics aren't wrong when they say The General is the height of silent comedy. An outstanding movie with production values light years ahead of its time

    The era of silent film was the time of some of the greatest comedians of all time. Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd and the comedic duo of Laurel and Hardy are legends in cinema and they can still elicit laughs from practically anyone almost a century after their heyday. Perhaps the greatest of all these comedians, and certainly the biggest daredevil, was Buster Keaton.

    Keaton, who was world famous for his death-defying stunts and gags, is most famous for his classic…
