This is a fantastic Australian movie with a huge chunk of eye candy in the form of our lost Heath Ledger in the lead role. He is brilliant. Story is black humor showing the underside of life in "the Cross" Great script, well cast. A very enjoyable DVD.
gave up after half hour. poor acting and got bored
A good although at times simplistic Aussie movie... story driven.
Main characters are interesting and believable.
Reliable cast and good acting. Typical Australian humour with a bitter sweet side to it. Bryan Brown and Heather Ledger are wonderful to see and supporting cast were excellent.
A pretty good Aussie drama. Worth a look.
The juxtaposition of mindless violence, comedic touches and not letting the kids "touch the guns, they're not toys", makes for an extremely entertaining movie. The classic cars are a bonus!!
Funny stuff, loved the aussie humour.
Actually a really good movie and I didn't know what to expect but I really enjoyed it and it was one of the better Australian movies. Heath Ledger is great
Imagine a cross between Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Little Fish with the compromises that suggests and you'll be close to Two Hands. I nearly gave up about 30 minutes in but I stuck with it and quite enjoyed it.
Interesting to see a young Heath LEdger in one of his first major roles. His talent is OBVIOUS.
It's a 'Good Australian film'. It's alright, nothing special. Heath Ledger is alright, but Bryan Brown is the better actor in my opinion.
I really enjoyed this movie, it has an excellent storyline and my favourite scene would have to be the bank robbery. It's good to look back on Heath Ledger's work also, such a great talent.
What a sad loss it was to lose Heath Ledger so young. Here in this edgy little Australian thriller he plays a foot loose young man on the edge of a life of crime, with great sensitivity. It’s an unusual movie, involving touches of the supernatural amongst a grim look at the sleazy underbelly of Sydney. Bryan Brown and the other members of his gang of bumbling small time hoods bring a uniquely Australian flavour to the gangster roles going about as they do in short pants. It’s a gripping and exciting ride with a number of unexpected turns.
I wanted to see "Two Hands" again, out of respect for Heath Ledger 's untimely passing. I thoroughly enjoyed this film, and found it very funny in parts. However, "A Knight's Tale" will always be a favourite Heath Ledger film for me.
Great aussie movie - really enjoyed it.
Loved every second, great actors and fab storey line.
Great fun gangster movie.
Reasonably good Aussie flick with some interesting twists.
I saw this on its first release, and had forgotten it. Have you ever seen another crime/comedy/supernatural movie before? Heath is good, Rosie gorgeous, and Bryan stunning. I think this is the movie which has typecast him as a crim forever more.
Very good cast. Authentically Australian.
Sharp, amusing expose on Sydney's underworld, full of contradictions and hypocrisies that work to undermine the value structures of middle-class viewers. Jordan's film vigorously attacks the notion of individual responsibility for crime, a central tenet of Australia's criminal justice system, and posits the more correct view that societies get the criminals they deserve. Combine this rather unpopular (at least among conservative politicians) view with a star-studded cast, which brings together screen icon Bryan Brown and the cream of this country's up-and-comers (Rose Byrne, Heath Ledger, Susie Porter, Tom Long), litter the background with familiar faces including David Field, Steven Vidler and Kiri Paramore, and aim high 'very high' and you have yourself a winner. "Two Hands" represents a major turning point in mainstream Australian cinema, and gives a voice to those disaffected by conservative politics of the previous twenty years, and particularly since 1996 in Australia.
An interesting little Australian movie, with a 2nd rate story line.
Perfect casting of major and minor characters, the wonderful linking of major and minor plotlines, the sense of humour, and the neatness of the ending combine to make this film one of the best examples of the native product ever made.
One of the best Australian films of all time. Up there with the Castle with some of the sarcastic humour. Who could forget the scene where one of the robbers kids accidentally fires a shotgun in the loungeroom, or where the robber knocks himself out during a poorly executed leap over the counter in a bank heist. Ledger is great in the lead role, and Rosie Porter very cute as the love interest. An underrated performance by David Field as Pando's henchman Acko is fantastic to watch. In one scene where Pando orders Acko to give Ledger the keys to his car, it took me back to the Kingswood Country classic line from Ted Bullpit: "The Kingswood, the Kingswood, your not taking the bloody Kingswood, I've just Mr Sheened the roof racks!!". This DVD has it all, comedy, action, romance and a ripping yarn that unfolds with many unpredictable twists and turns. Theres even some supernatural, with Ledgers dead brother making appearances to narrate some scenes. FANTASTIC.
A wonderful raw Australian black comedy. All the twists and turns gave me no idea as to how this movie was going to finish. Clever and quirky. I loved it!
Quirky Australian comedy. Good cast. Understated humour which is typically Australian. Very enjoyable
Similar to "Gettin' Square," but not as good (Two Hands was made first). Entertaining look at early Heath Ledger and a good insight into down-to-earth Aussie values!
Great Aussie Flick. Bryan Brown was awesome.
Great Aussie Flick. Bryan Brown was awesome.
Bryan Brown ought to spend some of his money and buy up all the copies of this dreadful piece of work and give them a buoyancy test off the nearest wharf.
Sorry to be so brutal but I honestly believe that is all it deserves
