Continuing my plan to watch every Mel Gibson movie in order I come toAttack Force Z from 1981.

Plot In A Paragraph: A group of commandos go on a secret mission tocheck for survivors of a plane crash.

By the numbers, cliché ridden, dull, flat and instantly forgettable.There are some good individual performances, but the film, thoughproduced with efficiency and what looks like a decent budget, is toughto say great things about this movie.

It probably wasn't helped by my DVD having a poor transfer. I'd go sofar as to say if Mel Gibson and Sam Neil weren't in this movie itprobably would have even had a DVD released.

Attack Force Z; A movie saved from obscurity solely because it providedearly rolls to Mel Gibson and Sam Neill. Throw parallels to The Guns ofNavarone (1961), The Dirty Dozen (1967) and Where Eagles Dare (1968)and you got yourself an Australian knock-off of early tough-soldier-man American bravado.

A group of Australian special forces is deployed during WWII to recoverthe passengers of a downed plane in Japanese occupied Dutch EastIndies. There they kick the proverbial hornets nest and try to stayalive thanks to the help of an underground resistance movement.

It was hard to get into this one largely due to its constant clichés. Iguess I have seen the dramatic self-sacrifice of a noble comrade andstealth gone awry because a twig snapped way too many times. Thecharacters themselves aren't incredibly developed and any attempt toflesh them out feels jerky and unnatural. At one point it just getsabsurd as one character stays behind to protect the love interest hehad shared a room with only a few cuts ago. Granted she prevented himfrom being discovered but besides a common enemy they had little toreally bond over.

Another major problem I had was the elongated scenes involving otherlanguages like Japanese and Cantonese. Perhaps it was just the versionI saw but with no subtitles provided, I was forced to guess what theywere saying and only later confirm what was going on. Plus if I'm notmistaken, they speak Malay in Indonesia not Cantonese.

Better than average Aussie "B" feature, where the producers have certainly gained maximum bang for their buck in more ways than one.

Let's be clear from the outset. This is a fictional story, supposedly based on the real life exploits of the Z force. The high body count pretty much attests to that. But high body counts do mean there is action and I have to admit some surprise as to how well director Tim Burstall, not really known for action films, choreographs the action sequences in this movie, bearing in mind that the budget he was working with was minimal. Still he cleverly manages to include realistically; a submarine, an exploding plane, fire - fights, martial arts and a climactic battle (of sorts). Attack Force Z may be many things, but it can't be accused of being dull.

Burstall even manages to throw in a couple of unexpected twists. One of the supporting cast members who was (and arguably still is) a very well-known Australian actor of the 70's and 80's, plays a character who barely has 5 minutes of screen time before suffering a probable unforeseen fate.

A bonus of course is we get to see both Mel Gibson (complete with Aussie accent) and Sam Neill playing together in pre-Hollywood fame roles. Gibson is the mission leader and Neill is effectively his trusty sidekick. I have to also say John Phillip Law plays the (token) American-Dutch, mandarin-speaking (LOL) character very competently.

The story itself too is quite interesting with its variation on the war against the Japanese in the Pacific, by this time, strongly highlighting the involvement of the ethnic Chinese.

I was pleasantly surprised with this film, as I'm sure others will be too.
