Watch Forbidden Ground - Alternative Versions.
Forbidden Ground is an Australian-made rendition of the plight of
British soldiers trapped in no-man's land, and should have been the war
epic it was (once) anticipated to be. The unfortunate truth is that it
falls short of all expectations, and as a patriotic Australian I take
no pleasure in saying it.
From the first moments the small budget is apparent. Close-ups try and
disguise the limited scale of the production. The battles in the film
are all no more than small skirmishes and never really produced with
any flair, impact, or suspense. The constant reliance on CGI for
special effects cripples the action, unlike it's predecessor Beneath
Hill 60 - which it will surely be compared to - which used mostly
practical visual effects and captures gritty violence effectively. As
such, when the horror of trench warfare comes along in this film, it is
woefully un- engaging, and downright boring in parts. I felt no
connection with the men going to their deaths. The obvious
computer-generated explosions and squibs left a lot to be desired and
had no "punch." It's an anti-war film, as most WWI films are, so you
would expect a focus on correctly portraying the shocking waste of war,
but Forbidden Ground lacks the budget or know-how to do it properly.
There are some tired clichés including snobby, arrogant officers and
the hard-nosed NCO, and while historically accurate in some ways,
Forbidden Ground doesn't cast the roles with conviction, simply
recycling scenes and minor characters from a dozen better war films.
The other problem with authenticity is that most of the cast is
Australian, and while our accents may be more or less similar and we
often are mistaken for Poms, the actors on show here can't quite make
it sound natural and every line feels laborious and forced. If they'd
just spoken with their normal accents they would probably have sounded
more comfortable with their characters, but alas every Pommy soldier on
screen sounds like a caricature of British stereotypes.
Another problem with authenticity is that the unit that is focused on
seems to be an amalgamation of British accents. Whether intentional or
by accident, units were formed from specific locales (universities,
rugby clubs, towns, cities, etc) and would only occasionally be mixed
with troops from broadly different locations (casualty replacements).
So the end result is a disappointing straight-to-DVD war drama without
any magnetism or flair. I praise the cast and crew for doing what they
could to commemorate the war, but I can't recommend Forbidden Ground as
good viewing. Better luck next time.
