This film was not a block buster by any means. However, it is a very clever film and the acting really pulls it together. Bryan Brown is respectable as the leading role and he is helped out greatly by his supporting cast, mainly John Goodman. Goodman's trademark has almost always been the soft big guy type, and he proves in this film that he has playing those type of characters down to a science. Sam Neill plays the crooked cop, a part that seemed to fit him, but his character is dry and does not receive much screen time. The film starts slow, but after it gets going, enough of a storyline comes forth to keep most interested. The climax and is not what I hoped for but the conclusion of the film will leave most feeling satisfied and it does a good job putting everything together.
