Critic Reviews for Danger Close

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (20) | Rotten (10)

  • By turns viscerally exciting and predictably formulaic - and, quite often, both at once - "Danger Close" is an efficiently crafted and consistently involving old-school war movie propelled by matter-of-fact professionalism on both sides of the cameras.

  • Anyone interested in the complexities and controversies surrounding Australia and New Zealand's involvement in Vietnam may find "Danger Close" disappointing. But the movie actually works OK as one long fight scene.

  • If it's not the most character-driven of Australian war movies, it's certainly one of the most intense.

    August 7, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Orchestrated on an impressive scale, the movie nonetheless feels both familiar and diffuse, with thinly sketched variations on a bronzed theme rather than characters...

    June 20, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The end result is about the ebb and flow of a conflict involving hundreds of combatants, not the scenes of solo heroism that typically make up the bulk of war movies

    March 12, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A familiar formulaic 'War is Hell' movie.

Audience Reviews for Danger Close

  • Jan 01, 2020
    I don't at all dislike War films, but they're also not of a genre that is particularly close to my heart. Danger Close didn't do anything for me that changed that, but, if you're a fan, and are interested in the ever-elusive "Anything other than the Yanks in WWII/Vietnam or the Brits in WWI/WWII", you could do a lot worse than give Danger Close a chance, but if you're looking for strong characterisation, you could do better too.
