  • The movie is half a great film about Kokoda.

    Jan 31, 2011 | Full Review…
  • One of the great strengths of Kokoda is the unflinching honesty with which it recreates the nature of the fighting. The film brims with detail that is physically, emotionally and psychologically authentic.

    Jan 31, 2011 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Kokoda is long on the muddy-bloody details of jungle warfare and short on fleshed-out characters.

    May 6, 2006 | Full Review…
  • It's a remarkable feature for so many reasons, not the least of which is the haunting tension that fills every shot of every scene.

    Jan 31, 2011 | Full Review…
  • The film deserves absolutely top marks for really re-creating this nightmare -- the rain, the mud, the dysentery, the horrors and it is almost like a horror film at times, as the Japanese get so close to them.

    Jan 31, 2011 | Rating: 4/5
  • First time director Alister Grierson is excellent at recreating the physicality of the Kokoda Trail but misses an emotional factor so that the film, while convincing, is not as moving as you would want or expect.
