geeza was scary man - watch it and see what a true mans man this fella was. There is a interview at the end with the makers and the real 'Chopper'. Tense, Bruv! Watch for the bit were he chops his own ears off - guess that's how he earnt his nickname.

A very good movie

Pretty much everyone has now forgotten that Eric Bana started his career with this little gem. It is really brutal and Bana is barely recognizable but he gives a great perfomance. If you thought that Hector was badass, you should definitely check this one out!

Top Films According to Me (30 movies items)

"Chopper is a fun, often disturbing look at the life and times of Mark Brandon "Chopper" Read, a famous criminal and bestselling author from Australia. The film covers his many conflicts with the denizens of the Australian prison system... ...his mental instability... ...his relationship and interpersonal issues... ...and his way of handling the problems one encounters when dealing with the dregs of society and living outside the law. Another thing the film deals with is the odd sort "

" Info Chopper tells the intense story of Mark "Chopper" Read, a legendary criminal who wrote his autobiography while serving a jail sentence in prison. His book, "From the Inside", upon which the film is based, was a best-seller. This is a violent and strange film. Sort of glad that I watched "Animal Kingdom" before this film as both deal with the Australian criminal world. Both films are considered black comedies... that doesn't underscore the brutality or bleak elements."

Film Journal 2011 (88 movies items)

" September 16th - Having been spellbound by Andrew Dominik's Assassination of Jesse James, I wanted to give Chopper a try. I knew Chopper was a much different type of film, but sadly that statement extends to the quality of it as well. It based off of the real life ex-criminal Mark Brandon 'Chopper' Read. As such it feels like the aim is to be a character study of a psychopath, but we really don't get a good sense of his character from the film. We don't come to an understanding of what mak"
