Surprisingly Good but cinematography let it down
17 June 2006 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I'm over in Sydney on business and I popped in to see what was on in the local cinema. All the films that were on i'd seen, and the only thing I hadn't was Caterpillar Wish. I kinda groaned a little when I realised it was an Oz picture, I went in almost expecting a not great film. A "We have to show something home grown because the government says so" type film. BUT I was amazingly surprised! It was so much better than I expected. Oz really does have talent! The actors were pretty good, the only thing I felt that let it down a little was the cinematography. Things could have been a little tighter, I think the crash sequence (without giving anything away) could have been done more effectively, in my eyes it just didn't work.

Good fun! go see! :)
