Continuing my plan to watch every Mel Gibson movie in order I come toAttack Force Z from 1981.

Plot In A Paragraph: A group of commandos go on a secret mission tocheck for survivors of a plane crash.

By the numbers, cliché ridden, dull, flat and instantly forgettable.There are some good individual performances, but the film, thoughproduced with efficiency and what looks like a decent budget, is toughto say great things about this movie.

It probably wasn't helped by my DVD having a poor transfer. I'd go sofar as to say if Mel Gibson and Sam Neil weren't in this movie itprobably would have even had a DVD released.

Cliché Australian Version of American War MoviesReviewed bypopcorninhellVote: 6/10

Attack Force Z; A movie saved from obscurity solely because it provided early rolls to Mel Gibson and Sam Neill. Throw parallels to The Guns of Navarone (1961), The Dirty Dozen (1967) and Where Eagles Dare (1968) and you got yourself an Australian knock-off of early tough-soldier- man American bravado.

A group of Australian special forces is deployed during WWII to recover the passengers of a downed plane in Japanese occupied Dutch East Indies. There they kick the proverbial hornets nest and try to stay alive thanks to the help of an underground resistance movement.

It was hard to get into this one largely due to its constant clichés. I guess I have seen the dramatic self-sacrifice of a noble comrade and stealth gone awry because a twig snapped way too many times. The characters themselves aren't incredibly developed and any attempt to flesh them out feels jerky and unnatural. At one point it just gets absurd as one character stays behind to protect the love interest he had shared a room with only a few cuts ago. Granted she prevented him from being discovered but besides a common enemy they had little to really bond over.

Another major problem I had was the elongated scenes involving other languages like Japanese and Cantonese. Perhaps it was just the version I saw but with no subtitles provided, I was forced to guess what they were saying and only later confirm what was going on. Plus if I'm not mistaken, they speak Malay in Indonesia not Cantonese.

Film kind of under attackReviewed byvideorama-759-859391Vote: 7/10

Attack Force Z is a strange one. Based on fact, regarding an elite squad of soldiers on a mission to rescue an important man, believed to be a plane that's crashed, this is a group that takes no prisoners, and are frighteningly unrelenting Gibson had done this the same time as Gallipoli and is strong, in his role, as the head honcho, with great support from Neil, Haywood, and sadly a short lived Waters.The other, John Phillip Law, who played a character I really liked is more a lover than a fighter, and I was grateful, the screen time I had with this guy, one near 20 minute duration, before we cross back to Mel and squad. Yes, this film has great action, but I found the film, sloppy in bits + some cheesy moments. Yes, good research has gone into it, but this is just a forgettable film. Great music score, one the film's assets, above not many years. Definitely worth a view, for the actors, in their young, talented prime.
