Movie Reviews

A bit overhyped....
Jason | Münster, Germany | 12/06/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Although the surfing and localism is quite incredible, the long pleas for trying to justify the Aussie "thug life" that these guys lived goes a bit overboard and actually bores the audience. A little further editing could have cut at least 30 min off this movie and had the same effect, without the boring narrations and interviews. Sometimes ignorance just can't be justified.
Coverage of the "murder in self defense" is the most interesting part of the film. Worth a watch, but I would doubt that this is a film most could watch twice."
Well worth a watch

"A fascinating & absorbing documentary.
I found "Bra Boys" eye opening and awe inspiring.
I came across this film by chance and I've watched it three times now - each time getting something new out of it.
The surfing is incredible - as you'd expect - and the story of the Atherton brothers and The Bra Boys is fascinating.
I highly recommend this film."
