Australian Movie inspired by the battle along the Kokoda trail. It focuses on a small group of soldiers who get cut off and try to return to their lines. Violence, torture, dysentery and malaria are all depicted in a graphic way… this movie is not for the  squeamish. Not much to see of the Japanese side and also not a lot of action, the focus lies on showing the hardships the Australian soldiers have to go through and the effect this has on the individuals. The Production looks a bit TVish but considering the low budget this is acceptable. “Kokoda” is not up there with the best of the genre but worth checking out. The DVD is currently dead cheap on Amazon UK.

Here is an interesting little documentary about the Kokoda trail:
