you dirty Water Rats....
14 February 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Unreleased in cinemas, HARBOUR BEAT was a good idea with an interesting cast. However, as an idea, it ended up more successfully on television in a TV cops in speedboats show called WATER RATS. Scot actor John Hannah went onto greater heights in FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL and THE MUMMY. Australian lead Steve Vidler worked again with the same director (Elfick) in the excellent rural family drama NO WORRIES and later directed the dramatic rape murder pic BLACKROCK. HARBOUR BEAT filmed on Sydney Harbour and around Bondi Beach probably has more interest for International viewers; in Oz it plays more like a telemovie and turned out to be basically that: the in adverted pilot for what turned out to be a network series about exactly the same thing. It is well made and looks good...all sunny and sparkling with groovy cars and handsome lead actors. Even the gorgeous Peta Toppano makes one of her rare screen appearances.
