Fantastic Aussie Film
3 September 2005 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I am an Aussie film buff and I can honestly say that this is one of my favorites. A great story about the brotherhood between blacks and the way they are treated by law enforcers. Also shows the difficulties of a criminal trying to change his ways. Its basically a real down to earth no nonsense film. There is nothing flashy about it and it was probably made on a low budget, but the story is great and very entertaining.

John Hargreaves is very good as the mongrel cop. John Moore is also great as the lead and the rest of the cast are also terrific in their roles.

Do yourself a favor and see this one !!
