Entertaining & Educative portrayal of Australias Hardest Criminals
With the use of forensic experts, police accounts and witnesses, Tough Nuts delivers a broader understanding of brutal criminals.
Very entertaining by solid dramatization and beautifully presented and narrated by Tara Moss.
Australia certainly has its own breed of anti-social characters, whether it bee serial killers, gangsters or white collar criminals.
The recent Melbourne Gangland War gave real live showcase for scenarios that has captivated audiences for decades in movies like Scarface and The Godfather trilogy. I lived in New Zealand as the last and most intense years of the gangland war raged , and I just felt like it was Scarface in the shape of Big Brother everyday.
For all true crime lovers, this series combined with the Underbelly series is a must and gives us an portrayal of the hardest criminals in Australian recent history.
P.S I perceive and review this series as a documentary. However my sympathies goes out to all innocent victims of the characters portrayed in this show.
