    A haunting and moving tribute to the Australians who sacrificed their lives in WWI against not the Germans but the Turks at the lesser sung battle of Gallipoli from the assured hand of Peter Weir.
  2. Director Weir and cinematographer Russell Boyd's re-creation of the invasion and battle action is stunning, but what makes Gallipoli such an affecting film is its intimate presentation of the friendship between Archy and Frank (wonderfully essayed by Lee and Gibson).

    Peter Weir's Gallipoli tackles a legend in human terms and emerges as a highly entertaining drama on a number of levels, none of them inaccessible to anyone unfamiliar with the actual events.
  4. Mr. Weir's work has a delicacy, gentleness, even wispiness that would seem not well suited to the subject. And yet his film has an uncommon beauty, warmth and immediacy, and a touch of the mysterious, too.

    Well acted and, within its limited terms, well made, Gallipoli represents a failure of nerve as well as design.

    Classy and lifeless - a prettily photographed, heavily directed antiwar film.

The acting is great throughout and the direction is phenomenal. It is as tragic as one might expect and certainly leaves you wondering about the point of war and if allowing these young men to do actually has some kind of positive impact. Top notch war film.
