Great Western... Australian Style!
2 June 1999 | by (Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I never have been a big fan of westerns, but this movie quickly became a favorite! The fact that it is presented from the point-of-view of the "bad" guy, creates an interesting perspective. I do enjoy this movie immensely, and this is partly why. By the end of the film, I found myself sympathizing with the "bad" characters, despite the fact that they were thieves and cheaters. The plot was simple, but didn't need more. I did find some parts of the film unique. This is refreshing in a time when movies are so often alike. If you are looking for a movie that's good fun, and solidly acted, this is the movie for you! Even if you don't like westerns!
