Movie Reviews

..Is this complete anywhere on dvd???
Chris J. Stilley | Dallas Tx | 04/23/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"....I was hugely dissapointed in the Troma release of this film..I thought finally after paying more for company dvd with a little more prestige that the usual bargain bin varieties..I'd be getting a complete version of this film finally on DVD!...NOPE..all the nasty tidbits were cut!..the Head getting blown thru at the beginning in the Chinese opium Den..the more graphics aspects of the prison rape..the bucket of animal guts scene...the [...] scene in the Bar..the old man mooning the Bush Cop...even the mention of the word Scrotum!..All cut in the Troma Release!...I'm sticking with my old Thorn EMI VHS!!!!..I'm Pissed!..cuz I love this movie!"
Wrong aspect ratio on Troma DVD transfer
a listener | pacific northwest | 01/02/2006

"The film was originally shot in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio. But this 2005 DVD release from Troma Entertainment presents the film in a 1.66:1 aspect ratio print cropped directly from the "pan and scan" full-screen print that was made for VHS releases. The film has never been seen in its original 2.35:1 aspect ratio since its theatrical release."
Talk About a Sleeper!

"I picked this movie on a whim, having nothing better to do that Saturday afternoon, and man, was I glad that I did. Filmed in 1976, this fairly low-budget movie stars Dennis Hopper as an Irish prospector-turned-outlaw during the Australian gold rush of the 1850s-1860s. He joins forces with an aboriginal renegade (played by David Gulpilil, who would cover similar territory a year later in the film of Thomas Keneally's THE CHANT OF JIMMIE BLACKSMITH) and goes on the lam, evading psychotic former prison guards and police. This movie, with its atmospheric cinematography, innovative folk music, rather seems like the Australian answer to BAD COMPANY. Hopper is really good as the harassed Morgan (with a respectable brogue, no less) and Frank Thring (who was rewarded with the greatest closing line in any movie since CASABLANCA), probably best known for playing Pontius Pilate in BEN HUR, is a sinister magistrate who tries to give Morgan his comeuppance. Don't overlook this movie."
New special edition sucks
Michele De Angelis | Italy | 12/17/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"BEWARE THE TRANSFER IT'S STILL HORRIBLE AND THE ENCODING OF THE DVD HAS PLENTY OF DIGITAL ARTIFACTS. LOOKS TROMA JUST RIPPED OFF THE OZ DVD, I'LL CHECK ABOUT THIS AND POST MORE,AFTER I'LL GRAB THE OZ SPECIAL EDITION. I WAS MISLEAD HERE CAUZ' I THOUGHT THAT THEY GOT THE NEW MATERIALS CREATED DOWN THERE, AND CAUZ' THEY HAD HERE EVEN A DIRECTOR'S INTRO.

BY THE WAY BUY AT YOUR OWN RISK I'LL TRY TO BE REFUNDED.
