A great film but there's something missing.....
22 January 2007 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie last Sunday which I taped from the previous night as it was on a little late for my liking.

Throughout the film I liked the story and especially liked the moments where there was humour thrown in to take away that this is a comedy and not a real action movie.

I thought most of the acting was superb. I personally thought 2 of the 3 actors did a very poor job. They had the perfect chance to show off playing a slacker but ruined it.

The performances of Fink, Able, Willing and Jesse were my personal favourites. They really hit the mark. They were absolutely perfect! It was all in all a good movie with some actors lacking in the acting ability. It's not your typical Hollywood rip off. It's something else! There's something about Australian film which distinguishes it from any other film made outside of Australia. They have their own style and often show you the different perspectives of the characters and what really happened. Full of twists and a real surprise! This film is worthy of 9/10 with -1 for the lack of good actors in roles in the film.
