Dramatic and involving story of a romantic villain/hero.
15 March 1999 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a careful, engaging and dramatically convincing biography of Australia's favourite bushranger, that is, outlaw, Ned Kelly, his defiance of the law, robberies, murders, courage, capture and death by hanging. It is slightly fictionalized and certainly romantic, as is his legend, but the writer has tried to keep close to the facts and probable motivation. The acting is good, with John Jarratt a convincing Ned and Sigrid Thorton as his feisty sister, Kate. The series does justice to the myth of Kelly, the semi-literate robber who could write inspiring dreams of an Irish-Australian republic and face heavily armed police wearing rustic armour made from farm implements. The supporting cast is very fine, the most memorable (and possibly true) line being that of Ned's mother before his execution: "Be sure you die like a Kelly!"
