Movie Review by Movie Addict
April 7th, 2008

I want you to kill your brother.

Favorite Movie Quote: "Love. Love is the key. Love and family. For what are night and day, the sun, the moon, the stars without love, and those you love around you? What could be more hollow than to die alone, unloved?"

The cinematography, music, and costuming in this dark western from Australia make it worth watching.

There is not a lot of dialog except for Captain Stanley (Ray Winstone) and Eden Fletcher (David Wenham). Well, we mustn't forget the drunken Jellon Lamb (John Hurt). He did tend to rattle on a bit. I really can't square Captain Stanley with Beowulf, even though Winstone played both characters.

Guy Pearce (Momento, L.A. Confidential) was very good as the brother who had to do the dirty deed to save his younger brother.

It was the Queensland scenery that made this film worth watching, but when you are looking at characters that are presented in varying shades of gray and have to choose who may be good or bad, then that challenge is what makes good film.
