Watch It Now
A well-groomed Australian low-budgeter undermined by dull pacing and cliched characterizations.
You've got to give full marks for the look of the film. It looks absolutely great.
Perhaps the tension of the situation is not exploited quite as much as one would hope but this is an ambitious project that will resonate.
How they did it, and what it cost is the real story. I'm glad it's told as well as it is.
The film certainly deserves to stand alongside such films as Gallipoli (1981), Kokoda, The Odd Angry Shot (1979) and Breaker Morant (1979).
This is our first really good movie about the Western Front. It's not faultless, but it does what it does very well.
Has every chance of joining the ranks of Gallipoli and Breaker Morant. It may even contribute to future generations' understanding of the Australian experience in the Great War.
Driven by a fine script and top performances, this powerfully affecting drama reveals an astonishing untold Australian war story.
Marks the welcome return of the epic war movie, in this post-Gallipoli true life story of heroism, mateship, and the consequence of warfare.
Beneath Hill 60 for a while feels almost embarrassed to be a big war flick, but once it finds its nerve, it genuinely excels.
A superbly crafted, tension-filled drama based on a little-known episode of the First World War.
