Anyone ever seen this movie?? I saw it when I was a kid, and just happened to catch the last 45 min on TNT. I really liked the movie. Any opinions?

I remember it was a romp I tried to find it at the video store a couple months ago, no luck. I looked it up at Amazon and it is currently out of print.

Yeah... Mel was in that. It had a big impact on me, I saw it first as a kid. It was on TNT or the like a few months back, and I got to watch it start to finish. Love those silencers! A lot of dead bad guys in that movie! I remember the part of them killing one of theri own when he got hit in the knee blew me away when I was younger.... I could not believe they would do that! Seems like they never ran out of ammo.... So, what kind of guns were those? This came up on the boards a long time ago, but I cant remember.

It was on cable about 5-6 months ago, I believe. Australian commandos in WWII, if I recall. I didn't get to watch the whole thing, but I remember a scene where they arrive in-country and one of them gets wounded. Gibson and the others go on and the wounded guy stays back with a teammate. He has a smoke, and is then shot dead by his 'mate, who rejoins the rest of the squad, and they proceed with their mission. Harsh.

They were using the suppressed version of the M3 Grease Gun. Cant remember if they were called M3A2 or were just a 'E' suffex- since any grease gun can become a suppressed version just by changing the barrel, and that screws out real easy, I suppose the answer is moot. But even then I do remember being suprised that it wasnt a MkIIS or VS Sten. A .45in Grease Gun made a much better suppressed weapon than the 9mm Sten but still. I wonder how accurate that was, Aussies using US equipment I mean?

The movie was on LAST NIGHT on HBO. Good flick with supressed grease guns.

Sweet movie. I saw it many times when I was younger (in the 80s). Just saw it again a year or so ago. The squad was made up of guys from different allied nations. Australia, Denmark, Holland, and Britain were all represented I believe. Those were in fact supressed M3 "grease guns" Now I have to watch it again. I cant wait... JRB

Denmark??? Austrailia, New Zealand, Neatherlands, Britain all had colonies there in the Pacific but Denmark??

I know the team was made up of Dutch, British , and Aussie members. I must have has a brainfart as I was typing my first post. Isnt everyone allowed one brainfart per thread? Denmark perhaps was not represented, I'll have to watch it again to be sure. Darn JRB

The actor in the middle of the pic, is he also in Jurassic Park? He looks damned familiar.
Link Posted: 12/23/2001 7:16:29 AM EDT
timh70, yup. A check of IMDB shows Sam Neil (dino-doc from JP 1 and 3) is in AFZ. Good eye. I thought he looked familiar as well, but I watched JP3 yesterday so he was fresh in my mind. On a side note, did it piss anyone else off that they set up the "20mm cannon" (ala shoulder mounted Barrett M82 .50 cal) and then they NEVER use it against a dino?? Christ, "Bambi" had more gun use than JP3. LAter.
