Powerful - well acted piece

As someone from Sydney, Australia I was proud at the way this was filmed. Using the Hollywood model, there would have been lots of sets but using actual buildings allowed a lot of warmth to come through in the natural light. Gibson is a fine director, I was impressed with his framing, he shoots very closely for the acting stuff (more head and shoulder) which is quite interesting on the eye. Using more natural light it is quite beautiful. I suspect Gibson will not yet have been forgiven for his personal life to get the recognition he deserves.

This movie could have been another Forest Gump, it could overly sentimental, instead, carries an appropriate amount of sincerity. The backstory is a major part of the movie. Doss is portrayed as uneasy with the girls who fell for the first pretty thing he saw. This could have been so Forest Gump-like but strikes a nice chord.

The cast was excellent. Hugo Weaving was perfection. He carried the first half of the movie as the battle-fatigued (PTSD) WW1 vet father. Some may complain that the women are poorly portrayed as are the Japanese, who are largely like ants coming from their mound or canon fodder.

As brutal as the second half is, I am sure it could not convey how truly gallant Doss was or brutal it was in reality.

That was excellent!!!

In general the movie is good. In my opinion the protagonist is a hero because he saved his friends.Al the movie has good effects for example when the war start. I love this part.

Nominated for best film oscar ... seriously?

George Clooney said you can make a bad film out of a good script but you can't make a good film out of a bad script. How could this film be nominated for best film but not be nominated in the screenplay category (Titanic anyone?).

I really wanted to watch this in the cinema and didn't. I made the mistake of buying it on DVD without checking which oscars it was nominated for and now a part of me wished I hadn't.

It isn't by any means a terrible film but I didn't feel emotionally involved with the characters not in the same way as I did with "Saving Private Ryan".
