Chopper tells the intense story of Mark "Chopper" Read, a legendary criminal who wrote his autobiography while serving a jail sentence in prison. His book, "From the Inside", upon which the film is based, was a best-seller.
It tells the story of Romulus, his beautiful wife, Christina, and their struggle in the face of great adversity to bring up their son, Raimond. It is a story of impossible love that ultimately celebrates the unbreakable bond between father and son.
Eric Bana is very talented but this show didn't quite work
I remember this show. This show was produced after Bana's successful run as a comic actor with the sketch show Full Frontal. And a couple years before Bana reached stardom, with his big break in the movie Choppa. The show would consist of Bana interviewing a guest, then changing outfits and doing a sketch comedy routine. I remember at the time Bana said in a TV guide that he wanted to do something different, then the normal late night TV host comedy show format. Frankly the format didn't work - Bana kind of looked too rushed interviewing a guest, then changing outfits and doing a sketch. While Bana is a good sketch comedian, the skits on this show were not particularly funny. And while Bana is a great comic actor, he didn't seem to have the quick wit that is needed to be a successful TV comedian host.
After the show aired for a couple of weeks, they moved it to a later time-slot. That tends to mean generally that TV executives are ready to Axe it. And hence it was canceled...........
