Trivia

When Ned Kelly rides to "work" there's a shot where he rides his bike on a long, desolate highway in a big sweeping bend. This highway is the same location as used for the climactic tanker-crash in Mad Max: The Road Warrior. See more »

Seriously, what happened to Yahoo Serious when he made such entertaining films?
20 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

In Australia, there is a legendary true Robin Hood like hero named Ned Kelly. His descendants still live on their own special island where the "newest" son is also named Ned (Yahoo Serious). A master of gunshots, Ned can and does shoot down flies if they bother him. He's also into bank robbing, where he meets a beautiful, Shakespeare reading bank clerk (Melora Hardin). She doesn't care for him. In addition, the bank head, Sir John (Hugo Weaving) detests Ned and is out to stop him. Soon, John has located a Japanese firm to buy the Kelly's island out from under them. Since Ned's bank heists in Australia must go to the poor, Ned sets off to rob banks in America. Along the way, he is asked to shoot a movie, using his skills as a shooter and a motorcyclist. Will Ned return in glory to re-buy the lsland with a boatload of money? This funny film is one of the few made by Yahoo Serious and it is highly entertaining. Just as its star, the movie has an offbeat charm and humor that has to be seen to be appreciated. Also fine are the supporting cast (Weaving is hilarious), the exotic scenery, the clever script and the fast-moving direction. What fun it is, seriously, to discover the gems of past movie making, Aussie style.
