Movie Reviews

Brilliant perception of the Australian suburbia........
Jimmy | Byron Bay,Australia | 04/18/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I loved this film so much.It's got such strong performance's, it unfortunately started to remind me of most of my own mates.Ben Mendelson doesnt get the attention deserved of him and this film is his showcase along with the equally brilliant Metal Skin. The imagery and cinematography is quite stunning of terrible Sydney suburb backdrops and development, and the environment surounding the two hapless characters seems to enhance the desperation of their situation.Their interaction's with other people prove's compelling viewing,from the garage drug dealer to one's deluded wife.Theres a particuliar scene I will never forget,and still makes me laugh out loud every time. While some factors and scenes can be disturbing in this film,it never the less add's to the spiralling effect of the guy's assumption's of life.Overall 8.5/10 for this particuliar masterpiece."
Idiot Box is Top-notch Aussie entertainment!

"In Australia, this movie has been on video for years and it's always been a classic in my eyes. It has a brilliant cast, a truly honest screenplay and stylish direction. It is also a great spin on the bank robbery genre. (as is another great Australian movie "Two Hands")"
Aussie Movie at its best!!!!!

"Kev and Mick are 2 natural born losers that decide that it would be easy to rob a bank. Kev is an accident waiting to happen, angry, and unemployed, gets the guns. Mick is slack, cynical, and most of all unemployed, masterminds the plan! The reason for robbing the bank - FUN!!!Starring Ben Mendelsohn and Jeremy Sims, this Australian movie is hilarious. The hijinks these two idiots get up to will have you rolling on the floor. There is a lot of offensive language though, but this does help the reality and humour of the movie. The cinematography of the suburbs of Sydney is fantastic. The Aussie hard metal soundtrack is awesome as well. Recommended to all who want a different kind of movie."
