THE ODD ANGRY SHOT – News from Synapse Films

the-odd-angry-shot-blurayAnother powerhouse from the mighty continent of Australia! Tom Jeffrey’s 1979 action/adventure classic, THE ODD ANGRY SHOT!

Tom Jeffrey’s THE ODD ANGRY SHOT is set in the late 1960s during the brutal war Australians shared with the United States: the struggle for Vietnam.

Harry (Graham Kennedy), a hard-edged Special Air Service Corporal, meets a new company of soldiers during his second tour in Vietnam. There’s the naïve Bill (John Jarratt), the easygoing Bung (John Hargreaves), the blunt Rogers (Bryan Brown), the pragmatic Dawson (Graeme Blundell), and the youthful and innocent Scott (Ian Gilmour). Because of their training as professional soldiers from Australia’s toughest Army unit, these men believe they can deal with any situation. They pass the time playing practical jokes, getting into drunken brawls and humoring themselves to keep their minds off the war. But, when the first “odd angry shot” rings out, and an enemy mortar barrage hits their camp causing many casualties, the men realize their protective shield of humor is no defense at all against the harsh realities of armed combat.
