Yeah, this film is a blend of Momento and Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, but I'm yet to see a completely original film that hasn't borrowed something from another film. Under the Radar takes these themes and makes them its own. The actors do a top notch job and the director handles this well written piece with pace and style. Evan Clarry and Steve Pratt have managed to weave together the multiple genres seamlessly in a form that keeps us guessing right to the end. The locations across the Gold Coast look stunning and are well utilized and the surfing sequences take you face first into the waves. The stunts are big for a low to mid budget film, but it looks and feels anything but low budget. In my opinion this is one little Aussie gem that has truly slipped; Under the Radar. Steady Eddy - Keep on shaking'. You owned the screen with a great first time performance.
