When I ran across the movie, I found that I can't understand it.

what does "how much like them we are" mean?


It's a sad way of admitting "We are quite similar to them.", most likely spoken after some kind of difficult or unfair situation with "them".



How much like them we are.

the definition of how is:

  1. used in exclamations to emphasize extent ⇒ how happy I was!

It is emphasizing the amount of similarity between "we" and "them".
