Hi All,

I generally dont post in regard to movies, and in this case the movie in question, to be honest i wasnt to enthusiastic to watch it.

However i have just watched it and found it interesting in many ways, especially realting to the subject matter of many threads on ATS.

Here is some info on the movie -

www.imdb.com...


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 lol.

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.




Scary if things were to end up like that!

You do realise that this movie is exactly the same as the book (or series of books) by John Marsden, who wriote them way before ATS was even in existance, right?

How can something writtent that long ago relate to todays situation

Yes, this series by John Marsden was my fiance's favorite book series when she was in primary school - it's been around for quite some time.

BTW the movie was excellent - I was sceptical but my fiance tied me to a chair and propped my eyes open with matchsticks and I thoroughly enjoyed it

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 tracks yeah.....

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

Actually it just made think, it's ironic that the US military was never held to account for all the civilians the Nuclear weapons killed.....

Fair enough Japan in accord with the rules of engagement started the conflict, the US killed many more innocent civilans dont ya think???

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 that.
