Anyone else think Reservoir
Dogs was nothing but a rip-off, right from the opening credits of
men in suits and dark glasses walking in slo-mo, as seen in a
million HK movies? Wish someone had told it's director that "funny
psychos" went out with Nightmare on Elm Street 4? Want
ultraviolence? Try this Australian movie, an unmoralistic look at a
gang of Melbourne skins and their 'relationship' with the local
immigrants. Most memorable sequence is a fight/chase around the
gang's base, but most of the opening 45 minutes is chilling stuff.
Then, as if to demonstrate skinheads are human too, the director
throws in a lurve triangle. Big mistake - while perhaps realistic,
it's hard to accept and, hell, it was far more enjoyable to see them
as monsters! So it finally ends up a maudlin love story/road movie,
but (if you'll pardon the pun) a nice stab, nonetheless.
