Movie Reviews

You need to be an Aussie to understand

"I have no idea why they compare this to the shield, and I agree with the other reviews, in the fact that if you like the shield, then this isn't the best movie choice for you. This is though a docu-drama, based on real events from one persons point of view. For those people really interested on the comings and goings of NSW cops then I suggest some of the books written, namely by the cop who was shot. I enjoy this movie as an Australian for the attention to detail of Sydney back in the late 70's early 80's. I feel sorry for you Yanks who can't understand our version of english, and I agree subtitles would be helpful. This movie though is for Australians and I wouldn't recommend it to people from any overseas country. I would like to point out as well, that thanks to cops like the ones depicted in this movie, NSW (New South Wales) police have virtually no power nowadays, which unfortunately has led to a decline in good public behaviour."
The Shield ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

"To compare this masterpiece to a fictional TV show is pretty pathetic. This is simply one of the best movies I have ever seen & if our US brothers have trouble understanding the queens english then that is their problem.

Those that lived through the times & experienced the corrupotion first hand (such as myself) know that this is as real as it gets & as dirty as it comes.

Maybe some of you actually thought it was a fictional movie or something.

Anyway ***** is not high enough."
Real life vs make believe

"Blue Murder is a dramatisation of real life events that occurred in New South Wales and which caused Royal Commission investigation and subsequent restructure of the NSW Police as a result. To say the storyline was 'corny' is a ludicrous comment.

Other than that, it is an excellent presentation, with top class acting and production.
True Blue Aussie Classic gets the treatment it deserves

""Blue Murder" is simply one of the finest pieces of filmmaking ever.

The direction, scripting, casting and editing are all top notch. Performances from the lead actors, down to the bit players, are all outstanding.

Those who didn't like it, need their heads read.
Those who had trouble understanding what was being said, should put in the effort and try harder.

The commentary track with Director Mike Jenkins, Editor Bill Russo and Filmmaker Mark Savage is really excellent, providing a great insight into the behind-the-scenes making of this true aussie classic. All are very talkative with lots of interesting things to discuss and chat about.

"Blue Murder" is an amazing piece of work.
