Synapse Films has announced that they are adding The Odd Angry Shot to their upcoming slate of Blu-ray releases. The film was directed by Tom Jeffrey and stars Graham Kennedy, Bryan Brown, John Hargreaves, and John Jarratt. The Odd Angry Shot will be available in stores and online August 13, 2013.
Harry (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 (Jarratt), the easy-going Bung (Hargreaves), the blunt Rogers (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.
The Odd Angry Shot was released on March 1, 1979.
