4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD DRAMA BUT A BIT OVERPRICED, 31 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
really enjoyed this aussie drama of the robbery and held the tension through to the end.good script,good acting and well worth watching but my criticism is that the dvd qaulity is poor for the price as i think it's too much anyway and am a little disappointed in that respect but otherwise good drama.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Peacemaker, The [DVD] [1997] (DVD)
what a load of tosh!!!! typical hollywood tripe with big stars to boost it at the box office...awful script and total patriotic claptrap by the americans... how anybody can give this above a 2 star rating is beyond me ???? it's the mcdonalds and chips of the film world to me.i like george clooney but this must of been to boost his pension plan and for nothing else.

1.0 out of 5 stars under suspicion but over rated, 23 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Under Suspicion [DVD] (DVD)
what should of been a good film and plot was the exact opposite..i felt like it didn't give me any sense of drama and lacked the tenseness of gene hackmans position.even though it had two big stars in this you would of thought it would see a film through but it's way off for me.would of been better i think if they swapped roles as morgan is too nice to be badgering someone and jene is too bad to play someone who is not in control and doesn't get angry !!very poor

took a chance on this film as some people seem to go into overdrive with their stars!!!...but this one didn't let me down good from start to finish..well made ,good acting and keeps you focused right to the end.If you have clicked onto the film then buy it.

1.0 out of 5 stars a biblical nightmare !!!!!!!!, 24 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Body [2001] [DVD] (DVD)
What a load of rubbish... this is just a lot of clips banged together to try and make a film.the film subject is good enough but there is no atmosphere or sense of excitement at all,it should be a thriller but it just limps along with no real energy and seems to rely on two well known actors to give credibility to the film...the plot sounds good enough but this film falls apart quickly as the acting!! a bit melodramatic to say the least!how anyone can give this more than 2 stars is beyond me....this is a biblical mess and shouldn't be resurrected!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars "all right at ease !!!", 18 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this has to be one of the all time classic war films for me,from script to actimg it's brilliant throughtout.this isn't just a war based film it's thriller with a comical edge to it that has you gripped to the seat from start to finish.If you haven't seen this film before then i am extremely jealous of you as wish i could see this again for the first time!!!!!!if you have no problem watching in black and white then your in for a treat this is a little gem.not going to bore you with the content of the film and tell you half of the plot like some other reviewers so buy the damn thing!

for me this is a fantastic low budget film,love the characters.if you have a straight sense of humour not sure if this is your type of movie and if you have no sense of humour try watching this little beauty you may find you have one!great film and a classic

2.0 out of 5 stars "NOT GOOD ENOUGH", 6 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tracker [DVD] (DVD)
this is not a bad film but for mr winston it's just not good enough!!thought he should of stuck with his native accent for starters like all film actors should it just never sounds right to me and think if it's that important in a movie then they should get a actor who speaks the language.the script wasn't the best and think they just relied on mr winstons name to sell this.really dissappointed and another movie that people give 4 and 5 stars to? i can't see it myself!!!!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars "HISTORICAL MAYBE BUT NOT EPIC", 6 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 1612 [DVD] (DVD)
i enjoyed this film good atmoshere,characters(loved the spaniard) and thought great setting.not sure how people give this such a high rating?!just short of a 4 star for me as although the scenes are excellent and battles well shot thought it was a bit disjointed,didn't bounce along quite good enough....not sure who the fellow is on the front cover and agree with the other reviewer that is about as much as i can remember seeing of him????????But enjoyed the movie,a good movie but definately not an "EPIC"
