The credits for this feature film.
And it doesn’t fudge on attributing blame — to the incompetence of British generals – for the blundering that saw 700 New Zealand lives lost … funfortunately it’s boosted by two very strong lead performances, from Kevin J Wilson and Robert Powell.– Reviewer Mark Knowles in The Dominion Sunday Times, 5 April 1992
We’re going to make it worth it Sergeant Major. And that is an order!– Colonel Connolly (Kevin J Wilson) to a sceptical Sergeant Major South (Robert Powell)
Filmed on the coastal hills of Wellington on a modest budget, Chunuk Bair is more a confined chamber piece than an epic, but Bradley uses this to his advantage to create claustrophobia. It is war in close-up ... Like End of the Golden Weather, Angel at My Table and Mauri it is compulsory viewing if we are to begin to understand ourselves as a nation.– Reviewer Mark Tierney in The Listener, 6 April 1992
...today is New Zealand's day. Not a general in sight aye— good. Not an ally up here — good. Chunuk Bair's our game. We do it ourselves. Believe in ourselves. Now if anyone's going to win anything out of this war, we are– Colonel Connolly (Kevin J Wilson) rallies the troops
Harkness, I want you to make a run for those trenches. Your job is to draw fire, not win the bloody Victoria Cross — you're just a diversion.– Colonel Connolly (Kevin J Wilson) to Harkness (Richard Hana)
