Good Aussie Drama
7 February 2011 | by tbatkinSee all my reviews

Underbelly is a well known series in Australia and is now into its 3rd Season - "The Glitter Strip". This seems to be a TV movie centering in the brutal murder of 2 cops in 1998. It wasn't as punchy as the original series which was noted for its rawness, nudity and brutality! It is certainly worth a look, especially if you live in Australia, particularly Melbourne. It has a strong local cast, many of whom are recognizable from other Australian Dramas. The film also managed to get the feel and look of Melbourne suburbs in the late '90's. I was surprised that the subject of "Police Corruption" didn't feature much as that is the underlying intrigue of the ongoing series. Overall I enjoyed the film - although it was difficult not to compare it with the original series - which is "must see" TV. TPB
