Always another war film!
17 November 2001 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

This Oz war offering just doesn't cut it in the big time. Slow in 1947, totally dead in 2002!

Terry Regan (a very young Charles "Bud" Tingwell) enlists in the Australian Navy hoping to emulate his father's record of service. He finds action in the Mediterranean and the Pacific, not to mention love and romance on the home front.

The action sequences, filmed at Flinders Naval Depot in Sydney as well as on location during actual Navy exercises, were reasonably good. The film is let down by less than credible dialog during the romantic interludes and are today dated to the point of inducing a coma.

No doubt a useful study-project for students of early Australian film but from a layman's point of view today, in a word...tortuous!
