...the unquestionably good intentions aren't enough to outweigh the middling results.

Hollywood Reporter


Orchestrated on an impressive scale, the movie nonetheless feels both familiar and diffuse, with thinly sketched variations on a bronzed theme rather than characters...

Screen International


A war movie both impassioned and generic; often, despite the film's palpable sense of importance at bringing such an under-sung skirmish to the screen, it feels impassioned about remaining generic.

Sydney Morning Herald


If it's not the most character-driven of Australian war movies, it's certainly one of the most intense.
