That wasn't Sean Bean reprising his role from Pixels was it?He Who Dares: Downing Street Seige.
It's on Netflix and it's a fcuking scream. I'm not going to spoil it for you but an SAS major has a debrief at No. 10 as a badly dressed Corporal with PTI swords and a face full of George Michael stubble. The officer debriefing him has a beard, at the end after they take his Army ID card he salutes, sans hat, like Arnold Rimmer or a Yank with roid rage.
The acting is top notch, seriously. If you have some time to kill, pour a hefty measure, sit back, relax and enjoy.
I made it to 20 minutes in and had to stop, my toes curled inside out.
I liked Kokado, it showed the ww2 digger was made of chocos and regulars. The CO at the orders bit was so proud to take part, he refused to take a wage for his cameo.Bet they have been mentioned before, (maybe even by me..)
9th Company. Foreign language pic of Russian soldiers in Afghanistan.
Some of the action scenes are pure Hollywood, but by and large I like it.
And one about the Australians on the Kokoda Trail... Kokoda 39th Battalion.
Maybe not the best ever, but both a really good watch.
When Darko and Jack are creeping through the bush, you can see a figure run past in the distant background. The director admitted in the commentary that the figure was his safety officer running for the toilet.
By a remarkable coincidence I just watched JoJo Rabbit last night at the insistence of my son. I sat down ready to harumph my way through 90 minutes of sentimentalist, ahistorical nonsense.JoJo Rabbit best Kiwi War film and up there with 'Come and See' and Die Brucke (The Bridge), with the latter it is a 1959 West German film:
A squad of very new recruits and a veteran NCO ordered to defend a small bridge against the soon to arrive Americans.
Its really excellent and should be better known, it shows all manner of things that would no doubt ring very true to the audience who lived through those times, including the perils of using a Panzerfaust indoors and being away from the front without the right papers.
Made and acted by people who had experienced those times
If you have not seen it seek out the 1959 original, avoid the 2008 remake – subtitles not dubbed if you please.
