Non Australian
2 June 2013 | by mark-701-467758See all my reviews

The animation is the only thing decent in this movie! None of the voices even go close to Australian accents. The scenery is inaccurate and the wildlife depicted are a far cry from Australian creatures. The creators of this movie would have done a much better job if they had hired some great'Australian voices like Geoffrey Rush, Hugh Jackman or Nicole Kidman. To hire New Zealand and American actors to depict Aussie accents is an insult to Australia. They should have also visited Australia to get a more accurate view of the scenery in the Outback! Do yourself a favour and watch Crocodile Dundee instead if you want an Aussie fix.
