A gripping account about a duo of eccentric youths that join the Austrailian Lighthorse in 1915, during the second year of World War One. Mark Lee plays the patriotic Archy Hamilton, who was once a nationally acclaimed sprint runner in his country. Torn from becoming a proffesional athelete and the war, he decides to quit running and fight for his country. Mel Gibson puts on a believable role as the con-man Dunn, who eventually joins together with Hamilton making the ultimate duo of the century. Drawn together from across a continent, the two men meet their destiny on the rocky slopes of Gallipoli, a famous engagement with the German supported-Turks in which the British army attempted to use the Austrailians as a decoy. The under-equiped Austrailians are slaughtered by Turkish machine guns as they try to leap out of the trench. The movie has a terribly sad ending, but is an excellent view on what part the Austrailian Royal Army had in World War One.
