Plot
Gallipoli follows two idealistic young friends ( Mel Gibson and Mark Lee ) who join the Australian army in World War I and fight the doomed battle of Gallipoli in Turkey. More of a character study than a conventional war film, Gallipoli is all the more affecting because of its unusual approach. The first half of the film documents the lives of Gibson and Lee in Australia, detailing their personalities and beliefs. The second half of the movie chronicles the ill-fated and ill-planned battle, where the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps is hopelessly outmatched by the enemy forces. Peter Weir 's subtle, masterful direction and the stunning performances by Gibson and Lee make Gallipoli one of the most powerful and moving war movies ever made, as well as one of the most effective anti-war statements ever filmed. — Stephen Thomas Erlewine
