Really Really Poor Comedy ThrillerBy Goldenboots (53 reviews) from East Grinstead, England , 17 May 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]There have been a glut of enjoyable Australian movies released lately(Dirty Deeds, Black and White, The Dish etc), but this was not one of them. This was, to be frank, awful. Every thriller cliche was used, every 'suprise' telegraphed, and the ending could be guessed at after 10 minites. Acting was ok, but the direction was cluttered and muddled. Avoid this Aussie movie and watch some of their other better ones.

Very DisappointingBy Willis (8 reviews) from London , 24 Feb 2009This film came out in Australia while I was living there and my flatmate at the time went to see it in the cinema and came back raving about it. It has taken me now 8 years to get round to seeing this film and I really wish I hadn't!
Slow, confusing, and just generally rather dull!
Shame as I like Guy Pierce, Rachel Griffiths and Joel Edgerton as actors!
Not Bad.By a customer from Stirling , 01 Dec 2008Not as bad a film as some are making out on here. I found it slow to start but once it got going it was quite enjoyable. Okay it wouldn't have won any oscars but it's worth a watch
recommendedBy CheekyBum (42 reviews) from London , 16 Jul 2008a funny film about positive criminals))
Aussie HumourBy a customer from London , 10 Oct 2006Brilliant to see the gang again...and once again the wry and understated Australian humour I love and miss. I will see any movies of Guy Pearce though, good, bad or indifferent.
A good yarn!By Chris from London , 16 Jan 2006I was throughly entertained by this criminal tale of three bankrobbing brothers. It reminded me alot of an Australian Lock Stock and Snatch, it had violence, comedy and some great characters with Guy Pierce again playing a good part. Recommended!
