Very disappointing.
8 December 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The trailer for Red Hill had me curious, but it turns out it's really bad. Essentially, Red Hill wants to be an Australian No Country For Old Men, but just fails to pull it off.

There is no story to speak of for the majority of the movie, then when it finally decides to arrive you really wish it hadn't. A simple revenge flick quickly becomes saturated with boring scenes, plot holes, gaffes, and bad writing (including but not limited to panthers).

Acting is abysmal all round, most notably Ryan Kwanten in the lead as Shane Cooper, and Kevin Harrington as Slim also gets a special mention. Tommy Lewis as Jimmy Conway could have been replaced by a statue, as he doesn't move, blink, or even attempt acting at any point. In any event, the actors were largely hindered by meagre dialogue and poor direction.

Director Patrick Hughes stole everything in this production (lighting, music, etc.) from about three other films. Red Hill is entirely unoriginal and cliché in every possible way. Having said that, Hughes has not stitched a few films together to make something entertaining or... watchable, but a boring mess encouraging you to check your watch frequently.

A western set in Australia. I like the idea, but bloody hell, mate...
