A funny, enjoyable Aussie film
20 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

Here is a fun film with a stellar Australian cast with enough turns to keep you glued yet plenty of laughs in between. Brad and Gregor, two broke medical students in their final year must resort to contentious lengths to finance themselves. With a large debt to the local loan shark they have little left to lose as they chase any opportunity that arises.

This is a very funny film which includes a few very, very funny sex scenes. The film has an exciting third act which others have compared to Lock, Stock. However this doesn't detract from the films fun, intelligence or tension.

All in all, I've given Muggers a few viewings and each time it's a thoroughly enjoyable film. Definitely recommended for fans of Australian Action films.
