Film Review

I was very impressed when I saw this movie a few days ago. By watching the movie it gives a great outlook to the new generation of Australian film-making, now it seems that Australia is almost equal with the Americans in terms of effects and cinematography etc. I heard about the film at the beginning of the year and I was impressed that the Aussies have put together what seems to be their first attempt at a WWII film (They have been making WWI films for ages, most are very good films). So I followed the information on the movie closely and I was looking forward to the final product. The only problem when it was released was that it was such a small movie there aren't many cinemas around that were showing it, but I was lucky enough to find a place that did, and it was worth the wait; every last minute! The movie follows a group of 'chocolate' soldiers, which are ill equipped soldiers that have been said to 'melt' during battle. They have set up HQ on the Kokoda trai…

There is no doubt that the Kokoda Trail depicts a truly great event in Australian Military history the brave defence of Australia against the cruel barbaric Japanese Army.Howver this film fails to take into account the story of the "Fuzzy Wuzzy's" or the New Guinea natives that The Australians used to help them carry out there military operations. The film also fails to give a credible account of the Australian soldier and his behaviour in this event. It is more like an uninformed contemporary view of what is was like.Again the Australian film industry has failed to give this important chapter in Australia';s history the film it deserved. This is film making at its worst with arbitrary cinematography , bad scripting and dialogue , no character development and cliché jungle warfare scenes.It fails to imbue the audience in any meaningful perspective other than the Japanese Army were ruthless and cruel murderers of an ill-equipped and badly trained group of Austr…

There have been a number of relatively realistic movies about war that have been released over the past twenty-five years or so — "Platoon," "Saving Private Ryan," "Blackhawk Down" — but this one has to be among the most brutal of them.For one thing, combat in a rain forest is about as awful as it gets. The opening images tell us what to expect. First, there are some arty shots of leaves and war materials, all dripping with water, and a few shots of animal life — borrowed, maybe, from the poetic "The Thin Red Line" — while a solemn voice describes the situation facing an untrained and ill-equipped group of Australian engineers hastily conscripted into a military unit designed to stop the Japanese advance across the mountains of New Guinea, save Port Moresby, and thus Australia. The Americans are in no position to help and the "chocos" are outnumbered ten to one by the enemy.Then we see a mountain of yellow mud from which a half-clo…
