      Luke Buckmaster Guardian Execution is a little hammy but the film's staginess gets more palatable as it goes along, until it finds an unpretentious homely vibe that makes it hard to hate. Nov 20, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews

      Mr Q One of the greatest war movies of all time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/08/24 Full Review Jason M Cheap movie that is poorly researched. The presentation of Australian soldiers is poor in the detail. Movie should be considered as a broad high level very basic idea but not an accurate historical reference. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/04/24 Full Review Audience Member Little budget but huge heart! For such a small budget this movie packs so much punch. Good balance between action and drama. Some actors are a bit wooden yet the cast carries the movie effortlessly, feeling like a true family that suffers every other members' suffering. It's a hard watch, especially for anybody that served, but I assure you all the pain it brings is worth the catharsis! A gem! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member If you are looking for a big budget movie filled with jaw dropping Hollywood special effects and political far left slight of hand, this film is not for you. This film, at it's core, does a wonderful job telling the story of a family's many sacrifices in and around WWI, " the war to end all wars", calling into question the need for such sacrifices in the first place, in a way that is honorable towards all those individuals, families, and communities who pay the true price for wars they did not start. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Completely historically and factually inaccurate ...please check tge haircuts, tge AIDS ribbons on tge band the effective range of tge SMLE the number in tgw firing squad etc etc etc its just completey innacurate in so many areas. Decent acting might have saved it. But its a fail there too. I could bear an hour hoping for improvement...didnt happen. Turmed it off. Very very poor Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member An ambitious story for such a low budget film and the film suffers horribly for it. The film extends from a war film into a strange and completely unnecessary bushranger murder story. The war scenes were full of terrible cliches, poor acting and horrible sets. Had the filmmakers lowered their ambition and made a simple war film they could have made a reasonable film. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews
