Crikey! What a bloody great Australian film!

"Welcome to Australia!"

Epic in the truest sense, Baz Luhrmann's much-hyped Australia is a film that exhilarates with its grand themes and physical grandeur. Fundamentally the Australian response to classic war epics like Gone with the Wind and Lawrence of Arabia, Luhrmann's majestic motion picture is to date the most expensive Australian production in the country's history (with th... read more

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was directed by Baz Luhrmann, I was quite eager to check it out.

A romantic action-adventure set in northern Australia prior to World War II, AUSTRALIA centers on an English aristocrat who inherits a ranch the size of Maryland. When English cattle barons plot to take her land, she reluctantly joins forces with a rough-hewn cattle driver to drive 2000 head of cattle across hundreds of miles of the country’s most unforgiving land, only to still face the bombing of Darwin, Australia by the Japanese forces that had attacked Pearl Harbor only months earlier.

" Pre-WW2 western romance put up against a great historical background with vast landscapes is what epic films are made of and Hugh Jackman looks like a young romantic Clint Eastwood and fits this project perfectly. Director Baz Luhrman decide to go for tons of soap operatic and melodramatic and dangerous life-and-death situations which ruin some of the more interesting dramatic beats in the film. Nicole Kidman show she is not that a perfect actress either as she go totally over-the-top several t"
