Documentary My Dear Rat

"First I would like to say the transfer from film to DVD is only mediocre. Some of the dark battle scenes in the original go completely black on DVD. This movie starts out like a documentary in Australia with the commentator talking about the Australian cattle ranchers. From time to time through out the movie it goes back to a documentary style. This bored me to the point that I fast forwarded it to the point they go off to war. The rest of the movie moves at a decent pace and the acting isn't to bad. Peter Finch is in it and turns in a fair performance. However; there are a couple scenes where the commanders are planning their battle tactics that are very stiff. Overall the movie just doesn't make it in my library of those WWII movies to own. If you are really into Australia's war movies you may find this more redeeming than I did. I'm giving my DVD to a charity."

"If you are interested in the battle of Tobruk,you would be better

The Desert Rats or Raid on Rommel."
