But a Ride you should not miss!
24 June 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I hate rating movies, but I give this one a 10, because it deserves it. I always been a fan of Hugo Weaving and he was twice as rewarding in this movie because he was so good in it, then it seems that he stepped out of the screen and came again to have a chat with the audience with writer, producer and "Max".(as reported being done in Brisbane in an earlier entry but this was in Sydney.I also missed out on the opportunity to get the inspiring book as it was the reward for those who asked questions but I was a little shy about it!) During this time I also learned that the book for once was actually shorter than the movie! So you take your seat and the films starts. The photography is stunning especially as you move, close and personal, into a wonderful Australian outback. No cliché, not too much to distract you away from from the unfolding drama. There father and son seem to learn about each others, but the hard way. Occasional flashbacks help you to understand a few aspects of the present situation. And you continue the ride, warts and all which focuses very closely on these two characters a middle age man who evolved from the school of hard knocks, and his somehow estrange son. We were told by the producer that the "ride" had to end somehow and there were alternatives on how to end this ride. I feel they made the right choice although the alternative would not have been unthinkable. Hugo's acting is very impressive in this work, and his 10 years old co- star is almost equally to the task. "Max" does little but very well too. I can't wait to read more comments from some of these excellent people who regularly share they thoughts here, because I'd be surprised if this does not prompt them to praise and elaborate much more concisely about it. Yes don't miss it
