Not Bad - Like Bone Dry
21 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is not a bad movie --

not a good one -- kind of slow in places --

Standard Ausie Out-Back movie -- some parts are like Bone Dry --

others remind you of Wolf Creek -- Both of the characters played did a remarkable job in keeping you interested in the long journey --

It was rather cool how Rosco (Bryan Brown) took care of his friend Thommo (Shane Jacobson)...

All in all not a waste of time -- but not an on the edge of your seat thrill either.

You be the judge of this one. I gave it a 6 because they didn't supply a 5 & a half.
