The Last Bullet
Readers Reviews imdb
This movie is just excellent. It's a little war movie that no one has ever heard about and that's a real shame. At a quick glance it's not very
interesting: an Australian made for TV movie starring Jason Donovan. And it's 90 minutes long (for me that's the definition of TV crap, those 90
minutes). But all is not what it seems. It's the story of an Australian and a Japanese soldier (both the last survivors of their units) that square
of against each other in the jungles of Burma in the ending days of WWII. But it's not the action that's the allure of this movie. We get to know
these guys with flashbacks to their lives before the war. What's their motivation, their background? They are not one dimensional and we get to know
them and learn that neither of them is a bad guy (not even the Japanese who is always portrayed as bad guys in war movies). They are where they are
for good reasons and during this movie it's impossible to take sides against either one. They are both good guys and you cry for them and what
happens to them.
A great movie about what happens to men during war.
I was fortunate enough to catch this film on the Sundance channel one day. It has got to be one of the most powerful WW11 movies that I have ever
seen. I literally cried during the scene where he (the Japanese soldier) was flashing back to his life before the war. I just broke into tears when
his daughter was stuck up in the tree, and he was below telling her to jump and trust that he would catch her. This is just wonderful filmmaking at
its finest. I want to deeply express appreciation to director Michael Pattisen for such a fine exhibit.
Just seeing part one helped me remeber the rest
this a fantastic film
has anyone else seen it?
