Danger Close Reviews

January 20, 2020
A familiar formulaic 'War is Hell' movie.

Danger Close ... exclusively paints with broad narrative strokes.

While Aussie audiences might find enough incentive to cheer their own, dramatically it seems like a missed opportunity.

Once you factor-in cardboard-thin characters, clichéd dialogue, and a distinct lack of context about how Australia found itself in Vietnam in the first place, Danger Close's stature soon shrinks markedly.
August 8, 2019
While the brutal and unflinching battle scenes are superbly crafted with an intensity that's truly unsettling, the film is let down by its overreliance on tired clichés and generic war movie tropes.
July 20, 2019
A war movie both impassioned and generic; often, despite the film's palpable sense of importance at bringing such an under-sung skirmish to the screen, it feels impassioned about remaining generic.

...the unquestionably good intentions aren't enough to outweigh the middling results.
June 20, 2019
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
It is an adequately made action film, but the grisly violence is numbing rather than emotionally rewarding, and the supposedly apolitical stance dilutes the depth of the story and characters.

Danger Close stays true to Australian sacrifice but walks a perilous line between honour and amnesia.
