Attack Force Z

1981

Tim Burstall
Director

Elite Australian commando unit attempts to retrieve asset that crashed on Japanese held island.

Rather dour tale of derring do dispassionately told. Artwork slightly elevates Mel over main man John Philip Law. For Mel Gibson fans or war movie completists only.

Oddly an instance where the DVD is actually superior to the Blu-Ray - the Blu-ray is 1.33:1, you have been warned.
