Excellent but unoriginal...
15 January 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

It's a shame when Film Makers have to rip off other movies. Especially when the idea for their's is good enough, yes it's always going to be done, but most can pull it off without making it obvious... This film was great, I thoroughly enjoyed it, but with the Tarentino like soundtrack, to go with the pulp fiction style development of the plot, it just pi#%ed me off! If they had just re-scored the tracks it would have made all the difference. They also had a bit of bad luck with using the same amnesia problem that Drew Barrymore suffered from in '50 First Dates'. As that was released only months before, but it was just another factor grating at the unoriginality for the films overall structure. Other than that it was very entertaining & I do recommend you check it out. There are many great moments and I'm proud to admit it's an Australian made film.

Without a doubt a positive step forward for the Australian Film Industry.
