British Commander-in-Chief Lord Kitchener is determined to see the men found guilty, which he can use as a bargaining chip in an impending peace conference with the Boers.

Critic Reviews for Breaker Morant

Audience Reviews for Breaker Morant

  • May 18, 2021
    A surprising courtroom drama that both indulges in the conventions of the genre (i.e. lots of speeches and flashbacks) and finds ways to expand the narrative in appropriate ways to include the world beyond the courtroom.

    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.

    Riveting, and strong as a thunder. Authoritarian figures and the misuse of power will always be problems to deal with as long as more resources are given to the wrong political candidates. The big picture is how many lives have to be sacrificed in order to maintain dignity and honor.... errr, peace. However, that's just the background. The real issue is whether this unjust decisions and stupid "holes" in the law will carry on with even more serious social and political issues in the future. God, how stupid can man be sometimes. 95/100
