Not too bad. Interesting storyline, some beautiful cinematography, passable performances and clearly left open for a sequel.
What a good movie.. show casing Australian beauty and the landscape too :P
Good acting, natural solutions, good definition of characters...
War can happen in anywhere anytime, even in Australia.
Cant wait for the next movie !!
a little short (104min)
A great movie, definetly does justice to the books!
what a great showcase of Australian natural beauty also
Pretty good...but book is better (aren't they always!?).
This sci-fi movies shows what can happen on weekend if not fully alert at all times to things around you and to use basic commonsense to get out of situations and
was thoroughly enjoyable. Good performances by all.
It was refreshing to see a war movie made in Australia featuring Australian landscapes and people. Not a bad story line although the movie ended rather abruptly and so I was left wanting more. The acting was good - I especially enjoyed the drug taking young guy whose name I can't remember. The special effects were well done and the cinematography was of a high standard. Overall I enjoyed the movie and would recommend it.
Good action. Waiting for a second.
Watchable, but more for teenagers.
Atrocious rubbish. All the actors should be condemned to supermarket spruiking - maybe they already are. Excellent cinematography however.
Acting in movie was very poor.. I had to watch it though because I loved the novel when I read it in school. Wouldn't say it was terrible though, it was ok
know its based on a book, havent read it, but none of the behaviour rings real. not much to watch
I am usually not a fan of Australian films but I must say I enjoyed this one. Would recommend this one!
Stunning movie! You'll be holding your breath thoughout the story. Has everything that a brilliant movie needs from the humor to the explosions. It's all excitement;) The end will leave you wanting more. Definitely reccomend for 12 year olds and up.
nice build up of characters
and their relationships/dynamics
director is patient to create his characters and its kindda nice
however characters being able to use weapons so quickly looks kindda stupid
AVOID if possible
Yet another scathing indictment of the Australian film industry :(
A great movie, fans of the book will appreciate how true the movie stays to the book and compliments it. Those that haven't read it will still enjoy as it as a stand alone.
A good and true adaptation of Marsden's novel. Enjoyable.
The acting in this movie is embarassingly bad. I appreciate there are a lot of fans of the novel but I think the actor says it best in the film when she says that the movie is never as good as the book.
We thought this was a great movie. Hope the next one is as good.
Looks like the beginning of a series.Lets hope if it is, the plot and acting are stronger. Good idea though.
Fantastic movie! One of the best i have ever seen :) Im going out to buy this one. However the ending was sudden, second movie coming maybe? I hope so.
Very Bad, Home and Away soap, action movie!! Awful acting, would have been better if the cast did not speak.
