Truly Excellent drama
3 November 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Rarely do I feel compelled to share my thoughts on a movie to other movie fans. A movie has got to be either really bad or exceptionally good. In the case of Jack Irish: Bad Debts, I am pleased to say that it falls into the exceptionally good category.

First up I compliment the previous two reviewers, whose views I share, and who have thoroughly set out some of the merits of this production.

This movie is outstanding in virtually every aspect. The actors are great. Guy Pearce is brilliant, as are all the other actors. No wonder, as they are all extremely experienced and each one manages to bring that little bit of extra depth, right from all the leads even down to the very minor roles.

The script is great; even though the story goes through quite a few twists and turns, it was entirely believable and had me hooked in.

The direction and technical side of things are first class.

For Melbournians, there is that little bit of extra joy hidden into so many parts of the film, but these traits also add a nice background and feel to the movie, which international viewers will also enjoy equally as well.

One of the best movies I have seen this year, either in theaters or on television. If you love a good yarn, don't miss catching up with this one. I give it 10 out of 10!
