Undercover is the Australian true crime story based on the journey of former Melbourne police officer Damian Marrett and how he fell into undercover work, then proceeded to take down the Australian-Italian mafia in the early 90's.
It was such a cold shoot that half the cast wore wetsuits underneath their costumes. See more »
Old Bill was holding his jacket in his arm when he exited the Town Hall building (with Cooper chasing him behind). In the next shot outside the building, Old Bill was already wearing the jacket which is neatly tucked. See more »
May not be a prizewinner but it's entertaining enough
There are a couple of times when there's what I judge an unnecessary jump in the plot line to accommodate something improbable in an otherwise realistic situation. They're minor flaws that actually brought a smile to my face rather than a groan, but they seem a little out of place even though this is an Australian film and they're famous for that kind of inclusion.
It didn't ruin my evening but it would have improved the film to have passed on them. This is an easily understood plot: a cop needs to get to a peaceful town in order that his wife can successfully carry their baby. Naturally, things go wrong his first day when a convicted murderer heads to the remote town to wreak havoc on his accusers. There little flashy gunplay or inspirational heroics, but the film will grow on you because it's very human and understandable.
All roles are artfully rendered by the cast and there's the constant feeling that you are there in a remote but beautiful area of Australia.
