Haunting and atmospheric gothic western that maintains the exact right tone throughout. The characters with no redeeming features are suitably dispatched, and those with some hope are left in a battered... Read more state from which they may emerge, except the unfortunate whipping boy. Gripping.
A moral tale that isn't self-righteous and the best Australin film for a long time. Brutal scenes, but completely fitting with the story. Excellent acting from all the cast - not a hint of the Home and Away or Neighbours school of acting.
One of my top ten movies, although it does (unfortunately) lose a little on the small screen ... we nearly went out and bought a bigger telly half way through. Beautifully made yet also not completely... Read more unreal, and complex characters in an straightforward story. Not for the faint-hearted.
A good Australian western. Good storyline, with greating acting Ray Winstone and Emily Watson who added greatr value to this movie for me.
Good movie though a bit disturbing to watch Guy Pearce looking terribly gaunt and anorexic. Amazing setting in the Australian desert, beautiful aboriginal music score and songs.
This was a great movie, Guy Pearce is a great actor and it shows in this. Loved it and the story line. Well worth a look.
Overrated synopsis - level of violence was quite shocking no real story to it at all.
I was disappointed with this. The synopsis sounded great but the film didn't stack up. Guy Pearce was disappointing and talk about grisly!.
Different, starts out guns and fire then slows down abit, not for children as the violence content could be disturbing. Good movie though if nothing eles to watch.
Oh well, the spell has been broken. Up to this movie I have never seen Guy Pearce in a poor film. This one was certainly lacking. Guy Pearce hardly said a word the entire time - I had more lines... Read more in the school nativity play when I was 4!
The plot was rather good, and the acting from Ray Winstone, Emily Watson and David Wenham was all good, but the pace of the film never really got going. Watching this movie I felt like a time traveler stuck in reverse. My wife resorted to reading her book...
It's a shame, as this movie had so much potential. 2 stars only from me. Rent it if you fancy an early night.
