Brad Haynes directs this Australian World War Two drama based on real events. In 1944, a group of Japanese soldiers held in a P.O.W. camp deep in the Australian outback make an escape attempt. One young soldier, Masaru (Shingo Usami), ends up hiding in the remote hilltop farm of reclusive farmer Jack (Jai Koutrae), a World War One veteran who never recovered from the traumas he experienced as a soldier. Despite their differences and mutual suspicions, it soon becomes evident that the two men share the understanding that war is not simply a question of good versus evil but a complex set of rules by which each of them is duty-bound to abide.

R138 Discovery Miles 1 380 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Restrepo is a feature-length documentary that chronicles the deployment of a platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley.

The movie focuses on a remote 15-man outpost, "Restrepo," named after a platoon medic who was killed in action. It was considered one of the most dangerous postings in the U.S. military.

This is an entirely experiential film: the cameras never leave the valley; there are no interviews with generals or diplomats. The only goal is to make viewers feel as if they have just been through a 90-minute deployment.

This is war, full stop. The conclusions are up to you.

R175 Discovery Miles 1 750 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Fictionalised account of the battle to secure Hill 937 (aka Hamburger Hill), an objective which resulted in one of the bloodiest conflicts of the Vietnam War. Focusing on the exploits of 3rd Squad, 1st Platoon, Bravo Company of the 101st Airborne Division, it shows the extreme duress suffered by the soldiers involved, as they do their best to win a pointless prize in a war being fought without popular support and which - like the attempt to secure the hill itself - is destined to end in failure. Written by John Carabatsos, who himself served with the 1st Air Cavalry in 1968-69.

The story of the 1879 battle of Isandlhwana, one of the worst defeats in British colonial history, 'Zulu Dawn' describes the diplomatic errors and ill-advised military decisions which led to a confrontation between 1,500 British soldiers and a 25,000 strong Zulu army. A prequel to the 1963 classic (and schoolboy's favourite) 'Zulu', the emphasis is again placed upon huge, awe-inspiring battle scenes and the brave stand the soldiers take against unsurmountable odds.

Two are picked up by other ships in the convoy, but the third drifts for days until its crew spies the burning 'San Demetrio' on the horizon. Do they board the ship, try to put out its fires and get it back to English shores or do they stay in the drifting lifeboat in the hope of being rescued?

As US soldiers occupied war-torn Afghanistan in 2002, a young Afghan taxi driver called Dilawar was arrested, along with his passengers, at a checkpoint for an alleged involvement in a Taliban rocket attack.

Confined to a solitary cell at Bagram, Dilawar was chained and exposed to continuous beatings and torture from the US soldiers. Five days after his arrest, Dilawar died.

Winner of the 2008 Oscar for Best Documentary Feature, Taxi To The Dark Side is a searing insight into the modern-day role of torture and political corruption in the war on terror, from Abu Ghraih through to Guantanamo Bay.

Starring Robert Beatty, Jack Warner and Simone Signoret, it is the story of a diverse group of people from very different backgrounds, who were brought together in one of the strangest enterprises of the war. Sabotage was their job; sabotage organised from London in the form of macabre practical jokes as ingenious as they were injurious to the enemy. The work was over-clouded with the constant fear of discovery – and what it would mean.

There are no wars to fight. But Gunnery Sgt. Tom Highway, a dog-faced relic of past wars, still has a lot of fight in him.

Besides playing "Gunny," Eastwood also directs and produces this tale of a Marine Corps lifer who, starting his last tour of duty before retirement, sees the bumpy road his life has taken become more complicated, due to feisty recruits, by-the-book officers and a salty ex-wife to whom he's still attracted,
