Absolute Rubbish
3 July 2004 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I am a lover of Australian films, especially about crime however this is as bad as they get. Bryan Brown would be ashamed that he was in this film. The acting is pathetic, the storyline crap and the sound effects sound like they are from 1970, not 1980. Overall there is nothing which makes this film remotely interesting unless you are an Australian film buff who just wants to see it for historic sake. Otherwise do yourself a favour and give this one a miss.

P.S. A fantastic Australian crime movie is "The Great Bookie Robbery" a 3 part mini series based on a true story. This one will not disappoint !!
