somebody missed the mark completely
15 November 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I was very excited to see this film after all the hype, i was also looking forward to a funny, insightful portrait of 'SUBURBAN MAYHEM' especially having grown up in a place like the one depicted in the film.

I was extremely disappointed. I actually found myself bored for the entire length of the film and it only runs for 90mins. I really can't understand how people are saying this is thrilling or a fantastic Austalian film. It is actually very weak, boring with not much mayhem.

I thought Barclay was outstanding but the script and direction was sloppy, the 'documentary' format annoyed me, totally unnecessary.

I can see what was trying to be achieved but the script lacked a real depth and direction and i found the characters to be two dimensional.

I don't know who is at fault here, the direction or the writing, maybe it was both - but somebody missed the mark completely.
