Lost Classic. Great Theme Tune.
18 May 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie years ago, I hired it after seeing the theme song on late night music video show "Rage". The song was "Running From The Guns" performed by Die Laughing. Anyway this led to my curiosity to watch the movie, and after years of searching I found it in the 7 movies for $10 for a week section, on VHS. The result, a great Aussie movie, with great cast and Aussie humour, as well as great score. I haven't seen it since and have never been able to find a copy. Why can't they put this on TV instead of replaying the same stuff. Anyway if you get the chance watch it. It definitely is no Mad Max, Crocodile Dundee or Babe, but is worth a bag of popcorn and a tall beverage. Again the theme song is a classic - good luck finding that as well.
