surprisingly good! Funny, sad, AND a happy ending!
So it's on DVD in America!

"A few years ago, I drove about 25 miles especially to buy this movie (used, on VHS) from Blockbuster. I wanted to see everything Heath Ledger had ever acted in, and I couldn't find Two Hands anywhere else.
I'm not a big fan of black comedies, but this is a pretty good one. There are some funny bits (particularly the parts with Heath's character's dead brother--Jimmy?), some intriguing bits (parallelism between a couple characters, for instance), and some nice little pieces of continuity in the plot (the way the plot traveled actually reminded me a little of the movie Go).
I'm glad I got the movie and watched it, but I don't think I'm going to buy the DVD; I may even sell my videotape. I just don't watch the show that often, and I'm not sure I want my kids to have access to a show this dark & violent at a very young age."
Classic Dark Comedy

""Two Hands" is a classic dark comedy starring a young Heath Ledger and Bryan Brown. Unlike American comedies, this is not a movie with big red pointers saying "laugh here".
The film is very much in the Australian style and is for people that can appreciate subtle humor. The bank robbery scene alone is worth the price of the DVD. Another bonus is the kickass soundtrack featuring a lot of Powderfinger songs."
Heath Ledger is fantastic in a great Aussie flick....

"Heath Ledger (Casanova, Ned Kelly) is fantastic as Jimmy who is supposed to do a clean in and out job for Pando, played by Bryan Brown (Tai-Pan, F/X movies) and delivery 10,000 dollars but he eventually loses it to some kids. Now, Pando is out to get Jimmy so he can kill him for screaming the job up. Jimmy falls in love with Alex, played by the cute Rose Byrne (The Tenants, Wicker Park) who gets caught up with Jimmy's problem. Jimmy's dead brother Michael, played by Steven Vidler (Blonde, Dog Watch) watches over him, narrates sometimes, protects his brother. The characters intertwin with one another at some point. It's Australian, yes! But this crime caper, comedy/drama, whatever you wanna call it is a scrorcher, a blazer. The direction itself is awesome and the performances are great. The best parts and the highlights would have to the the whole Bank Robbery scene and the getaway....comical and brilliant. One of the movies Heath Ledger was in before he became famous. Brown is a great badguy and Byrne, like I said is cute and that accent is adorable. Also starring David Field (Black Jack '03, Chopper), Susie Porter (Better Than Sex, Feeling Sexy) and Tom Long (The Dish, Echo Point). I recommend this highly to anyone in the crime caper genre...it's great!"
