All Wally Mellish, an ex-convict in 1960s Australia, wants to do is live a quiet life with his girlfriend Beryl. Unfortunately when two police officers come around to disturb this, a misunderstanding quickly becomes out of control, resulting Wally, Beryl and her child being trapped in their house, surrounded by armed police under the impression that Wally is holding everyone hostage. Events quickly spiral into a media circus as, through the siege, Wally - inadvertently - manages to become a symbol for the anti-war movement. Written by
In my opinion, Mr. Reliable has a great production. I do not feel any disturbing mistake in the production for the whole film. I also think that all actors do good jobs. I normally like McKenzie, especially in Under the Lighthourse Dancing, Romper Stomper and Angel Baby. So I enjoy watching her role.
It is a story of Wally who gets involved with a single mother. He takes the mother and also the kid to a (poor) renovated house. The conflict happens because he wants new decoration for his house. He then steals the figures of car. Polices come along to arrest him but he tell the polices that he has a baby hostage. The situation is bigger becasue Sydney police commissioners try to control the situation. People are also interested in the case as well as media.
This disturbs me too much. People think that Wally is a great guy. They act against police's violence. Actually, police is not really violent becasue they want to help the baby who is not really a hostage. People also support and celebrate the loser Wally. I do not think of the reason why I would do that if I was in the situation. For me, Wally is not a hero at all. And he should repay for what he has done. The ending is too happy. He should get a lesson or even penal.
