So apparently Umbrella Entertainment, an Australian label specialising in releasing local films, is expanding to the US for home video releases, starting with Attack Force Z
While Attack Force Z is a bit of a footnote in the careers of both Mel Gibson and Sam Neill, it's not terrible. It's just not good, either. But hopefully this is a good step for Umbrella into an overseas market, because they're also responsible for distribution of ozploitation doco Not Quite Hollywood
, a large swathe of Brian Trenchard-Smith films including a recent release of The Man From Hong Kong
that includes Deathcheaters, Stunt Rock, Kung-Fu Killers, Dangerfreaks
, and The Stuntmen
all on the same disc, and releases of genre classics like Long Weekend, Body Melt, Road Games, Mad Dog Morgan
, and even more "legitimised" Australian film history such as Jedda
. One to keep an eye out for, if you've any interest in Australian cinema.
