Based on a true story but playing like a close cousin to Stanley Kubrick's 1957 masterpiece Paths of Glory.
"Breaker Morant" is an anti-war film that takes no prisoners.
Bold, uncompromising and completely compelling filmmaking.
It's deservedly one of the most acclaimed Australian films.
Memorable Aussie epic with Edward Woodward particularly good.
Excellent anti-war flick from Austrailian "new wave"
The film all Australian films since have tried to live up to - and couldn't
contains one of cinema's most undernoticed and passionate speeches
Woodward delivers a fine performance as the soft-spoken commander, Brown is effectively hot-tempered and Fitz-Gerald is terrifically naïve.
Breaker Morant is a top-notch film about an injustice in the annals of military history.
A superb war movie with an unsettling moral.
engrossing military drama that contains a wealth of insight into the intertwined tragedies of power, politics, war, and human nature.
Zulu. The Man Who Would Be King. Breaker Morant. I just love jingoism!
At the beginning of the 20th century 3 Aussie soldiers are court-martialed for killing 6 Boers in South Africa, only the game is rigged. An ugly tale of military necessities versus political necessities made real by rich performances.
Checking out the movies inspired from real events, I came across this one. Especially interested in crime genre movies based on true events, I just couldn't overlook this. An IMDb rating of 8/10 (at the time when this is been written) only added to my eagerness to check it out. It was like any other courtroom drama (here it's court-martial). Nevertheless, it was worth a watch. It depicts how some brave lieutenants are used as scapegoats in order to seek peace!!! The case was presented marvelously & it was intriguing to see how the relatively inexperienced lawyer of the accused defends them. However, one can easily deduct that the outcome of the case was already decided upon before even the case has started. The movie was handled excellently; it was interesting thoroughly for what could otherwise have been a boring predictable docudrama. All the actors play their part quite impressively. If you're a fan of movies based on true events, you might like to check this out. It's not too great, but is worth a shot.
Memorable Aussie film with some good performances and great dialogue.
