Both a fitting testimony to the courage of the thousands of Australians and New Zealanders who died fighting for their country and one of the most powerful cinematic examinations of the futility and tragic cost of war.

The friendship between town and country boys Lee and Gibson is real and personal, and the final shot transcends cliche.

The central section devoted to training in Egypt sags badly through its crass buddy antics and its crude caricatures of wogs and pommies.

One of the best war films ever made....a triumph for the AFI

Weir goes so far in humanizing Archy and Frank before they head off to the dehumanizing crucible of combat that he commits the greatest sin of all... he's boring

Weir's work has a delicacy, gentleness, even wispiness that would seem not well suited to the subject. And yet his film has an uncommon beauty, warmth, and immediacy, and a touch of the mysterious, too.

Gallipoli is a powerful World War I drama about some Australian soldiers fighting in Turkey that depicts the horror and tragedy of war.

Regarded as one of the very best Australian film's ever made (with Mad Max and Picnic at Hanging Rock). Mel Gibson in one of first roles, and a touching but ultimately tragic tale of war.

War has rarely felt more nonsensical in film than it does here.

The magic of Gibson here is in his remarkably wide-open, guileless face; for a time, he was one of those rare screen presences who suck us in with the simple nakedness of their gaze.
