A really well constructed Australian film, that accurately portrays theVietnam 'feeling' in this country. Best described as a sad thought provokingwork, with some excellent and funny performances by the skilledcast.A low budget film that 'over achieves' its message.

The Synopsis for The Odd Angry Shot (1979) 1080p
A group of Australian SAS regiment soldiers are deployed to Vietnam around 1967/8 and encounter the realities of war, from the numbing boredom of camp life and long range patrols, raids and ambushes where nothing happens, to the the terror of enduring mortar barrages from an unseen enemy. Men die and are crippled in combat by firefights and booby traps, soldiers kill and capture the enemy, gather intelligence and retake ground only to cede it again whilst battling against the bureaucracy and obstinacy of the conventional military hierarchy. In the end they return to civilization, forever changed by their experiences but glad to return to the life they once knew.

I have seen this movie many times and never tire of it. Knowing peoplethat were involved in the conflict I believe that this is how theyacted. Graham Kennedy is excellent as Harry as are the other actors. Itis a no holds barred account of the soldiers time in the jungles ofVietnam. Showing the soldiers personal side to the story only makesthis film better.
This movie is also now available on DVD. It is well worth obtaining acopy as this movie is well worth keeping in any persons DVD library.This is one the better made Australian movies and future generationswill also enjoy watching an account of a turbulent time in worldhistory.
The posters have been accurate, but there are a couple of points tomake.
1) When Graham Kennedy made this, it was well past his crow imitating days -he was trying to crack into movies (and doing generally quitewell)
2) The original novel was based on the experiences of the author. That ishow he saw his experiences in the SAS. The movie is an excellent adaptation.So when you ask if these guys would have stormed Kosovo, the answer is'YES!' There is a very well done scene where they clear out a temple (ihope). This shows the true level of professionalism in the SAS at that time,despite all the nonsense they carry on with....
3) What most war films don't do is the extreme boredom felt by soldiersbetween combat ... this film does do that. Even Saving Private Ryan didn'tquite make it...
4) Apart from those minor quibbles, I agreed with the reviewers... Find thisfilm and watch it. While it is flawed, it is possibly the best Vietnam film,and the one with the least political baggage...
