"YOUR BULLET PROOF BOYS"
27 April 2020 | by waynegavin1See all my reviews

I enjoyed this NED KELLY parody & any historical inaccuracies did not bother me because the premise is there regardless.GEORGE MacKay plays NED well & cameos for RUSSELL CROW & CHARLIE HUNNAM help give this movie some substance & star quality,the movie can be gruesome at times to the point of nervous laughter were your not sure how to take it as comedy or not but the insane nature of this families existence provides many disturbing scenarios.this film has been ridiculed for not being accurate but to me if I didn't know any different watching it I would not be surprised if it was,I mean who's to say what people will do when they are driven by poverty , lack of social status , oppression & extreme violence,I recommend watching this one regardless of whether you believe it or not it is not a disappointing movie......
