Armed Robbery has never felt so good
3 March 2006 | by (Melbourne) – See all my reviews

Well here we have it, the way Australian drama should be done today. This mini-series is a true Australian gem, showcasing the many wide and varied talents available to modern-day writers and directors to use.

The city of Melbourne is its own character here and it really shines. The acting is top notch as is the writing. In the same way that Kubrick's The Killing was often noted as a very tight, suspenseful thriller, The Great Bookie Robbery is a very nicely structured and scripted drama experience.

It is a shame that the Australian industry don't make them like they used to. This is a great example of what has been lost over the past 20 years since it was made.

One of Australia's best drama mini-series.
