Early in the film, Happy Jack uses the word 'moxie'. This word came into common American parlance in the 1930s and was derived from the beverage of the same name; The Legend of Ben Hall is set in 1860s Australia. See more »

A mildly interesting story about an Australian bush-ranger that runs about half an hour too long. Very slow moving and not-engaging. By halfway through I'd completely lost interest in finishing the film, much less the "history". Apparently, for a review to be valid, it requires 5 lines of text, but I'm not sure that there are 5 lines worth of useful thoughts on a movie where almost nothing happens in 2 hours.
