Oh dear, Oh dear..
22 June 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Seeing as the other people who have submitted comments for this pile of old trousers have kept it short and sweet, I will keep the ball rolling by simply saying:

1. This is the first film I have been able to follow on fast-forward just as easily as if I was watching it on regular speed with sound, that's how predictable it was.

2. It's not only Hollywood that knows how to beat the old bad-boy-turns-good redemption tale to death with a stick, the Aussies can certainly give them a run for their money.

That is all. Oh, and the soundtrack was absolutely terrible.
