For fans of "The Great Bookie Robbery" & Aussie Nostalgia
7 April 2004 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

You can almost smell the sweat and testosterone !

This is a movie for the blokes. It's full of tough blokes, violent blokes, bossy blokes, union blokes, angry blokes and blokes who tell the sheilas to go away and let the blokes get on with important blokey business.

Hugely talented Australian cast with an equally talented director. This is what Aussie society was like before we all became middle-class and comfortable.

Oh, the plot? Crooked blokes are practically lining up to rob an armoured-car security firm. The siege mentality builds as the story progresses, as the company tries to work out where the next hit is coming from.

If I had to pick a fault, it was sometimes hard working out who was double-crossing who, some of the dialogue was up to "Law and Order" fast snappy talking standard, but it mostly all makes sense towards the end.

Three stand-out treats - 1. Jeanie Drynan (the mum from Muriel's Wedding) looking very trim & terrific, not at all like the side of a house.

2. The Beaurepaires Tyre man playing a sadistic henchman. (He played a similar scary character in Mad Max).

3. Lucky Grils being excellent light relief as a "Bluey" character.

It was also interesting seeing a young Bryan Brown (un-imaginatively cast as "Brian" !) playing against (later) type ie having a lack of confidence and really feeling the pressure, almost the opposite of his roles in "Cocktail" and "Risk".

So crack open a beer, send the wife out of the room, turn up the volume and enjoy this under-rated Aussie movie.
