Storyline

Nazi skinheads in Melbourne take out their anger on local Vietnamese, who are seen as threatening racial purity. Finally the Vietnamese have had enough and confront the skinheads in an all-out confrontation, sending the skinheads running. A woman who is prone to epileptic seizures joins the skins' merry band, and helps them on their run from justice, but is her affliction also a sign of impurity?

Trivia

The character of Hando was originally written for Australian actor Ben Mendelsohn. However, Mendelsohn did not look menacing when his head was shaved, where as Russell Crowe had shaved his head, gotten into character, and had been persistently contacting Geoffrey Wright to reconsider his casting decision. When Wright decided Mendelsohn didn't have the look, the role went to Crowe. See more »

Quotes

Champ: [while Hando has Nguyen in a headlock on the ground] We hate you gook, we'll never let you go.
Hando: This is our place gook boy, our place. What are you going here? Hey? The only thing for you here is pain.
Champ: We don't love you.
[Kisses Nguyen on the cheek and then punches him]
Hando: [while shaking Nguyen] Understand? Understand? I hope you do mate because I don't speak monkey talk.

Insanely fantastic
27 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

Very violent and if for any reason you need to get your heart racing, this is the ticket. Takes awhile to get going and for a plot to actually form, but when it does all bets are off and the movie is running at 1000mph for the rest of the running time. There are moments of human interaction and even some tenderness but they make the violent scenes so much more meaningful. Different from "American History X" but similar in many ways too.

Crowe is great, as always. He can play anything, I am starting to believe his recent Oscar win was a really great thing. Hando is a totally different person from Bud White in 'L.A. Confidential', Maximus in 'Gladiator', Andy in 'Proof' and Jeff in 'The Sum of Us'. I can only imagine what he'll do in 'A Beautiful Mind' but I bet it'll be something.

8/10
