YMMV: Gallipoli
  • Critical Research Failure: The film's treatment of the British is extremely disrespectful, as it creates a misleading impression that British incompetence and laziness were what caused the disaster at the Nek; in fact, British soldiers suffered the most casualties of the Allied forces at the Gallipoli Campaign and the failure of the attack on the Nek was entirely down to Australian incompetence.
  • Ho Yay - Between Archy and Frank
  • Tear Jerker - And how. Many parts, but especially the sequence where the men know they will die so they pin their diaries, letters and photos to the trench walls (so their families will get them) is particularly heartbreaking. The last frame before the credits, is this manifest.
