Great cinematography and intriguing plot set up but lacking in substance
Singapore, February 1942. An Australian fighter pilot is shot down over the jungle and must find his way back to Allied lines, through Japanese-held territory.
The basic plot is what made me watch this: the survival theme set in war time is intriguing. Initial set up is good too.
Moreover, from the beginning the striking feature of the movie is the scenery and cinematography. Is very well done, with lush junglescapes and the stillness and peacefulness of nature contrasting with the violent war and life-or-death struggle the airman is engaged in. It reminded me a lot of the cinematography in Terrence Malick’s ‘The Thin Red Line’.
However, after the intriguing set up there is really very little in the way of plot development or substance. A human/relationship drama is introduced but it is not developed to much of an extent. The middle 60% or so of the movie involves far more style than substance, with the scenery largely replacing plot development.
Conclusion is fairly good and has an emotional element, but even that is underplayed.
Ultimately, okay, but could have been much better. Fairly disappointing.
Only Watch this movie if you like National Geographic
I agree with other reviewers, this has to be one of the most BORING war films ever. At least 30mins into the film and no action. Just two guys lost and surviving in the jungle in WWII in Singapore. Great visual shots of the Singapore jungle and the sound effects of the jungle and atmosphere are incredible. This movie feels more like a National Geographic film than a movie in the first 15mins. The acting is flat, one dimensional with weak character development. You start out with no dialog and the plot is thin. That said I would overlook all that if there was an interesting action scene in the first 5 mins of the film. Only Rambo could save this film from boredom!
Only watch this film if you are into the sounds and cinematography of exotic jungles of National Geographic documentaries. As one reviewer here said, turn up the volume, turn off the lights and enjoy the sounds of the jungle…and for that alone I would give this film almost 10 stars!
