Knobbled before it can even get away!
11 May 2003 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Why do all contemporary Australian moviemakers suddenly want to make the next Pulp Fiction? Here's another example that brings to mind You Can't Stop The Murders from a few months back. It had a great premise (all the characters from the Village People - Indian, cowboy, bike rider etc. getting bumped off with the policeman next unless he solves the case) but the script and direction were, well, appalling. Here the direction is better, but the script is still heavy-handed, plodding and instead of being zappy is just plain dumb. The premise - a loser who wants to prove he's somebody by throwing the Melbourne Cup horse race - had potential. The acting isn't too bad either. But once again there's all this unnecessary nasty violence (it's cool! it's now! it's groovy kids!) and teen girls with wigs and guns (how very Tarantino) mashed in and the film just stalls at the gate. It's hard to imagine who this will appeal to, but one thing is for sure - there's unlikely to be a sequel.
