    When the movie keeps its focus on retribution and Rambo-esque ambushes, however, this slice of Ozploitation doles out grind-house pleasures by the dozens.

    The problem is that Hughes fails to imbue this homage with anything personal. Aside from splicing together a policier and a Western, there's no spin here, just a checklist of clich├ęs.

    It's a Clint Eastwood role that only proves you can't send a boy to do a man's job.

    It's clear that Hughes knows his Midnight Oil, but he's ignorant of the craft of economic action filmmaking. However arguably noble his film's intent to redress historical grievance, a poorly filmed shoot-out is never more than exactly that.

    a really good independent thriller/modern-western. but beware it is a slow movie, don't expect a fast action shoot-em-up movie. the best moviea really good independent thriller/modern-western. but beware it is a slow movie, don't expect a fast action shoot-em-up movie. the best movie i can compare it to is the american, if you liked that you'll like this. Ryan Kwanten does a really good job (it was fun to see him play someone other than jason stackhouse), the story is intriguing, and the direction is good. not for everyone, but still a good movie. 94% Full Review »
