BENEATH HILL 60 (Theatrical Release Australia 2010)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.4|5.0 Starsìì

Beneath Hill 60
—fresh storyline that follows the efforts of an Australian miner during World War I—sadly, suffers from lack of realism and believe-ability. The special effects, especially the explosions, are poorly done by today’s standards. The actors, such as Brendan Cowell, do not seem sincere. The basic story structure is solid, but the story’s potential does not seem to be fully realized under Director Jeremy Sims’ efforts. With replacement of cast, tweaking on the special effects, and a rewrite of the script, this movie could be an A-class film.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

No. There’s more entertainment value in the World War II movie Windtalkers than in this World War I film.
