Aussie Classic!!!
15 November 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Straight up, The Postcard Bandit is brilliant, directed n' shot so well and acting is top form. Only thing with true story's is that i wish they would keep it real as much as they could for legend sake, they don't go off the rails to much here but as other reviewers have noted, the truth is a little stretched.

Putting that aside, this movie is classic, a true Aussie flick that should have gotton more than just a TV airing, but if you like the slick stubby wearin' yobbo laugh's then this is it. The score contains mainly of Australian singer/songwriter James Rayne and flows this film very smoothly as we travel with Abbot and crew across our red land on his mission robbin' banks. Australia needs more movies like this, n' one thing we do love is our outlaws. Tasma Walton by the way is another good reason to check this one out!!! She rocks!!

Right up there with Chopper Two Hands and, Dirty Deeds.
