When their country is invaded and their families are taken, eight unlikely high school teenagers band together to fight.
I will also post the trailer below. Basically i group of teenagers go out into the wilderness / country for a couple of nights and return to find our
country invaded. Some scenes reminded me of the FEMA detention camps.
Also please forgive the Aus accents, they are really accentuated, i have scene these actors in local tv series and we really dont sound that redneck
But it is worth a look! As i said when i first saw the trailer i wasnt really interested but it was actually very interesting.
Yeah fair enough the books may have been around for awhile i just thought it had interesting timing for release, also by watching i can tell this must
have been the biggest budget Australian Movie since the movie Australia.
yeah yeah compaired to US movie budgets it may not be much, but yeah they did an ok job. Hey look i dont know it might just be a random movie with
real significance at all. I just though it may be worth posting. All the crap i see on ATS, it has some parts the are relative.
There is one part in the movie where the teens wander upon what used to be a fair ground or carnival, the ferris wheel is still spinning but there are
people locked up in wire fences, mobile guard towers and people being shot point blank for no real reason.
But hey maybe its all just theatrical.... who knows.
Yeah i just watched the trailer for Red Dawn, yeah i see what you mean very similar of not almost the same except for a different enemy.... but yeah i
still just thought the movie was worth sharing
It seems like the enemy in the recent is the Japanese, man i have thought for a long time now, i wouldnt be surprised if the Japanese were a silent
enemy, now i might be wrong and there nothing to justify that statement but lets look at history:
They were very speaky before the bombed Peral Harbour, US and also Darwin, Australia during WW2, and a formidabal enemy. The only way they were
stopped was by the use of the Atomic bomb which killed almost if not more than 1 million people over Hiroshima and Nagaski. That stopped them in thier
Well i gotta say from empathy and prospective if i was them i would hold a damn big grudge!
Just think about it.....

lol hey dude im not knocking the aus movie to be truthful American movies really have taken a dive in recent years. Im just saying if you cant get it
red dawn would be a good replacement. personally the bbc and hbo did a series called Rome it was awesome and i personally think non American actors
are better actors maybe it just because im American or maybe its because i haven't seen them in 12 other movies so they fit into the role better

These books have been around for years, I wouldnt think it has any thing suspicious about its timing. More so I think if any thing its just
capatilising on current times as people do feel insecure with whats going on and also fear sells and so do disaster movies. Personally the film wasnt
bad with the cinematography and fx but like always it was extremely fake with the actors and the exagggerated accents..why do they do the accents?
Because aussie movies are made for other countries. Ridiculous, when was the last time you actually heard some one in real life with an accent like
