Couldn't recover from a bad start
So remember Moulin Rouge? It started with a lot of quick talking, bad acting and was just SILLY, with dwarfs and narcolepsy and all. But, for me, it changed when Ewan hit that note in 'your song' and I loved the movie from there on (though I do tent to fast forward the 'like a virgin' bit).
Australia starts the same with a silly fight and Nicole Kidman overacting in an embarrassing way. The whole thing reeked of comedy (the kangaroo scene could have come out of 'the gods must be crazy') rather than the historical epic/romance the trailer advertised and I just couldn't get into it after that.
The romance, action etc just seemed cheesy. Instead of using the natural beauty of Australia we were shown some truly bad CG backgrounds and effects. Come the bombing climax at the end I just didn't care.
This could have been great
but ended up average at best.
