Storyline

Brothers in Arms is the story of the lead up, reasons and the repercussions of the "Milperra Massacre" where two warring Motorcycle Clubs faced off in the car park of a western Sydney pub on Fathers Day, 1984. The two clubs, the Bandidos, and the Comancheros were once under one club, only to later split, which then caused a rift that would lead to many deaths. Whilst the show is "based" on real events, there are inaccuracies that can easily be ignored and give the viewer an insight into not only the bikie (biker) culture, but also one of the worst massacres in Australian history.

Mostly terrible
22 May 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I watched two whole episodes just to make sure. This really is mostly terrible, best illustrated by one unfortunate piece of casting.

Colin 'Caesar' Campbell was a big man, tall, broad shoulders, an imposing, perhaps threatening presence. He is portrayed here by Anthony Hayes, who is about as imposing as a teddy bear. He has narrow shoulders, a pot belly, he really isn't up to the job. He's not alone in that but, more than any other cast member, illustrates how this show falls so far short of anything remotely resembling a true portrayal of an outlaw motorcycle club.

It's quite clueless. These rough, tough bikies, who mostly look like a bunch of nice middle-class youngsters after a biggish weekend, ride around on shiny new Harleys, straight off the shop floor in 2011. So there you go, how many telephone calls would it have taken to line up some authentic old motorcycles? One, if you rang the right place, it wouldn't be that hard.

There are whole sequences where nothing happens, nothing is learned about the characters, the narrative grinds to a halt. There is the occasional brief flicker of a scene that isn't all that bad, usually featuring Callan Mulvey and Matt Nable , the two leads.

Okay, so we've got some pedestrian direction and photography, a lousy script, woeful casting, fair-to-middling acting, some reasonable art direction and set direction, poor attention to relevant detail and an overall look and feel of the whole project being rushed along too quickly. So it's pretty much your standard Australian teev series.

It's quite extraordinary in its own way. A show about bikies that is boring and mundane.
