Breaker Morant is the 1980 Australian war film. It takes place during the Second Boer War. Several men are on trial for murdering Boer prisoners of war and a German missionary. The military wants to charge them with murder and put them to death to appease their opponents. Their attorney, Major Thomas tries to defend them, even though the deck is stacked against them. He gives a speech saying that war turns everybody into ruthless soldiers. Will this defense save them?

The movie is okay, if not the most memorable historical film. Some viewers may note the irony that even though the Boers wanted their independence, they were not willing to extent that to the African ethnic groups that live there first. Major Thomas does bring up a good point that many soldiers in war do questionable tings. Although most people may come up with a decent defense that the government should establish laws in order to prevent this things from happening again. Honolulu war film fans should rent this movie first.
