As with the casting of Midori (Youki Kudoh), there was really only one person to portray Colin. Several actors were considered, but ultimately director Craig Lahiff and producer Helen Leake felt that only actor Russell Crowe had the right blend of machismo and vulnerability required. See more »

Admittedly I'm a dedicated Crowe fan and have almost all his old movies but when I first got Heaven's Burning I found it a bit odd and would have said - well all great actors have to put in time on mediocre movies before they get to the top stuff. However after watching it again today for about the sixth or seventh time, I have to say that it really is very watchable. Even those awful sideburns. But thanks for not inflicting them on us again Russell. Yes its a road movie crossed with Bonnie & Clyde,Aussie version, but the tender little love story, the fast pace, the violent bits and the collection of grotesque characters met on the way make for an interesting ride.
