Classic Aussie Crime Flick
11 June 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Director Jon Hewitt who also created other classic Australian flicks, Bloodlust 1992 and Acolytes 2008 has created another gem in Redball.

Starring the talented John Brumpton who has been in other classic flicks, The Loved Ones 2009, Storm Warning 2007, Dance Me to My Song 1998, LIfe 1996, The Combination 2009, Romper Stomper 1992 and another classic Aussie crime flick Red Hill 2010.

Also starring Belinda McClory who was also in Jon Hewitt's Acolytes and Life with John Brumpton and also the classic flick, The Matrix 1999.

I loved the violence, drugs, sex and music by The Meanies in Redball.

If you enjoyed this film as much as I did then check out other classic Aussie crime flicks, The Horseman 2008, Chopper 2000, Dirty Deeds 2002, The Boys 1998, The Magician 2005, Money Movers 1978, Getting Square 2003, Two Hands 1999, Blue Murder 1995 and West 2007.
