Editorial Reviews

Attack Force Z (alternatively titled The Z Men) is an Australian World War II film, directed by Tim Burstall. It is based on an actual event that took place during World War II, and was shot in Taiwan. Sent to rescue survivors from the site of a plane crash in the South Pacific, Capt. P.G. Kelly (Mel Gibson) and his elite squad of Australian commandos must keep tabs on a defecting Japanese official who could hold the secret to peace.

No need to review the movie here, HOWEVER, the Blu-Ray is sub-standard. Advertised on Amazon as having an aspect ratio of 1.77:1 this BD has only a 4:3 pan/scan image (labeled as 4X3 on the package). The picture is washed out and of general low quality. The existing DVD from 'Image Entertainment' has a better overall quality even with it's non-anamorphic 1.78:1 widescreen presentation. In short, avoid this Blu-ray like the plague!

One of my all time favorite movies that I never thought would see the light of day on bluray. April 4th I receive my copy from Amazon and put it into my bluray player only to shrink in horror into my couch. The film is washed out, presented in 4x3 format and is just downright pathetic. I would suggest purchasing the incredible import version of this movie on DVD. It deserves 5 stars, is widescreen and an excellent transfer. If in the US however you will have to watch it on your computer as it is PAL version and won't play on your US TV or bluray player.

This negative review is not about the movie itself it is about the blu-ray. The movie deserves 4 stars it has a good story and features good performances from a great cast. There have been very few world war 2 movies about australias soliders and the bravery and sacrifice of these great men. I belive most fans of war and action movies would enjoy this film and appriciate the contribution that austraila made toward victory. That said this is the worst blu-ray I have ever seen. The transfer on this disc looks little better than a vhs tape and is in the same 4x3 format as vhs. Amazon listed this disc as widescreen 1.77 to 1 they have now changed it to 1.33 to 1 but it still says widescreen. I don't understand why Cinevision Int'l Inc or any company would bother to relese a good movie like this that was filmed in widescreen and use such a horrible transfer and worse yet in 4x3! The only thing that looks blu-ray about this disc is the blue case that it came in. I own this movie on dvd and the dvd has a better picture and is shown in widescreen.

This is the story of a group of Australian Commandos from "Z" Force sent to rescue a group of diplomats, including a Japanese, whose plane has crashed in the jungle. Stars a VERY young Mel Gibson, John Philip Law, and Sam Neill as the Commandos. It's a race against time as to who will get to the crash site first...the Commandos, the native partisans, or the Japanese. Starts somewhat slow but builds up to the final shootout with the Japanese. I rated it 5 stars because I like "commando" films, however, the real rating should be 3 stars...simply because of the somewhat low budget, the script, and the acting....never the less...it is an OK film. Supposedly based on the real WW2 Australian Commando group "Z" Force.
