‘Danger Close’ is an epic recount of the Battle of Long Tan with no Hollywood exaggerations, no excuses for narrative cuts, and no colourful tie-ins. Kriv Stenders has created a film that explores inherit Australian values, history and entertainment – whilst encapsulating friendship, and a modernised respect to the ANZACs. - Lily Meek Read Lily's full article... https://www.maketheswitch.com.au/article/review-danger-close-the-battle-of-long-tan-close-to-home Head to https://www.maketheswitch.com.au/sff for more Sydney Film Festival reviews.
I don't at all dislike War films, but they're also not of a genre that is particularly close to my heart. Danger Close didn't do anything for me that changed that, but, if you're a fan, and are interested in the ever-elusive "Anything other than the Yanks in WWII/Vietnam or the Brits in WWI/WWII", you could do a lot worse than give _Danger Close_ a chance, but if you're looking for strong characterisation, you could do better too. _Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
