Revitalising the Australian film industry!
2 August 2018 | by theycallmetheghostSee all my reviews

This film is great! Let me tell you why;

Comparing this film with Hollywood blockbusters is difficult, but seeing what the production team have accomplished with just a few percent of what a big budget film would spend ($5M>$100M), and you truly come to appreciate the work put into this film.

It is honest. A real portrayal of what the film makers believe would happen during an invasion of this nature. There are no precedents for a situation like this, and they have taken great liberties to create something believable and grounded, while also allowing for a wider scope to let the story grow.

The cast are all tremendous with an ensemble cavalcade delivering touching, emotional and at times brutal performances. They take stock of the situations they're in, and are pushed and shaken, during victories and losses. For a number of the cast, this work is some of their best to date.

Is the film perfect? No, but what film is. Are the performances perfect? Some, but not all, and again, no film has a completely perfect casting slate. But, this film deserves to be praised, for taking a chance, for pushing the boundaries of what local content can create.

To achieve so much, wiht so little, is remarkable. Give this team a Hollywood size budget, then see what they could create.

To the audience complaining about this film, and giving unjustified scores... Where's you film? Because I can't wait to review it...
