Be on the look out for Abe Forsythe...
25 January 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

If you are familiar with Abe and his work such as 'liquid blue' and his brilliant satire on the matrix 'computer boy', then you'll know what you're getting yourself into when you sit down to watch 'Ned'. A funny spin on the outlaw who Australia has always considered a hero and placed upon a pedestal, Abe flushes the legend down the toilet and does it his way, making Ned Kelly into a pony-riding, girly-running, frigid dork who just wants to save his families rubber plant farm. Yes, there are alot of fart jokes. A few controversial gay jokes and a lot of good old slap stick humor. But Nudge from 'hey dad' makes an appearance... and that's good enough for me!

I like Abe. I hope he continues to make movies, because he's young, fresh, funny and seems motivated and passionate about his career. Give him, and 'Ned' a chance... cause this is about as true blue as Ned Kelly is ever going to get!

p.s- listen to the feature commentary if you hire this on dvd.
